The Chicago Riverwalk has some of the most stunning wedding and engagement spots.
From the classic Wrigley Building wedding photo to the more adventurous lower wacker drive photo, there are endless spots around the river for gorgeous wedding and engagement photos.
The Wrigley Building overlooking the river is an iconic spot for wedding photos, but there are always crowds of tourists.
East of Michigan Avenue
This is a beautiful view of the river, Michigan Avenue bridge and the Wrigley Building. This is one of the few spots along the riverwalk where there is not a fence by the water.
The ornate texture and shape of the Wrigley Building makes this a unique photo spot.
This is one of my favorite bridge photo spots. The architecture of the buildings in the background with the bridge leading lines makes a perfect wedding photo.
Walkway from Michigan Avenue
This is a little secluded spot leading down to the river. There's a great view of the Wrigley Building and the river.
Walkway from Wabash Ave.
I love this review because the fence and the bridge converge in an interesting way with the buildings providing a nice backdrop.
Near the Wrigley Building
It's an effort to get to this spot because you have to walk through lower Wacker Drive. But the view is amazing and there's rarely other pedestrians.
The north side of the riverwalk has several great spots that are a little more private.
This area of the riverwalk near City Winery is called the Marina. On a beautiful sunny day, there will be lots of people walking by, but the view is beautiful.
Heading west along the riverwalk, you'll walk past different sections along the riverwalk.
Continuing west, there are several jetties which are great spots for photos.
LaSalle Street Bridge
The LaSalle Street Bridge is an iconic bridge with a view of the Chicago Board of Trade in the background.
Across from the River Roast, this lovely spot catches the LaSalle Street bridge and the twinkle lights of the River Roast.
Wells Street Bridge
The Wells Street Bridge is a unique bridge along the riverwalk because the L train runs on top of the bridge. It's a fun spot for photos if you are brave enough to dodge the oncoming traffic.
This overlook by the Wells Street bridge has a beautiful view of the clocktower, the river and the LaSalle Street bridge.
Stairs to the Riverwalk
Every section along the riverwalk has a grand staircase leading from the street level to the riverwalk.
This is one of my favorite wedding photo spots. It's an incredible view of the river and building. In addition, it's easy for a trolley to pull over to quickly get some photos.
This a beautiful view of the whole river and the Merchandise Mart.
Franklin Street Bridge
This is a great bridge for wedding photos because it's a beautiful view and there's not usually many pedestrians walking by.
Lake Street Bridge
As the river branches, Lake Street Bridge connects the east and west points of the riverwalk.
Just below the Lake Street bridge with views of the bridge and the towering North Riverside building.
Where the river branches, there's an expanded walkway and park leading to Lake Street.
320 River Bar
This section of the riverwalk is near the Westin Hotel and RPM Seafood.
