I have performed a number of ceremonies at the Chicago Historical
Museum but they were recorded on video tape and not by still
photography. I have chosen to include it anyway as it is a
premier location for a wedding ceremony and reception in Chicago.
With just a little
imagination, I believe you see what I mean. See the semicircle
inscribed in the concrete? Imagine those are guests seated
in amphitheater, all facing the steps. Now imgine the bride
and groom at ground level facing those guests. Place the bridal
party on the steps up and around the bride and groom facing
the guests also. If you can't see this yet, look
at the this photo and place that bridal party in the photo
above. The effect would be stunning, taking full advantage
of those steps, the majestic columns, and the semicirlce courtyard.
