This styled shoot delivers a twist on the classic steakhouse wedding. The team chose Smith & Wollensky Chicago for its remarkable views of the Chicago River and the city skyline, as well as its classic dark-wood tones and the mouthwatering steaks. The refined elegance of the wedding reception was highlighted by fun twists and pops of color. The darkly romantic floral arrangements featured unexpected coral blooms; the groom rocked a navy houndstooth tux; the bride stunned in a glam, bohemian wedding gown. The unexpected elements of the venue brought a fun touch to the day as well. With a statue of a bear in the stairwell and lifesize carved antelope, this classy steakhouse reception featured the perfect touch of unexpected charm.
