If I could give this collaboration one million heart eyes, I totally would. Since news broken a few years ago that Hotel Northland would be completely renovated and reopened to the public, all eyes have been on the multi-million dollar project. Hotel Northland was once the coolest place to be in Green Bay, and several famous guests have walked through the building’s historic doors.
According to Wikipedia, “Many famous guests stayed at the hotel, such as Lon Chaney, John F. Kennedy, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Vince Lombardi. It was also where Senator Eugene McCarthy – then running for president in the 1968 Democratic Primary – was given the news by Senator Ted Kennedy, that his brother Robert F. Kennedy, would be announcing his presidential run the following day.”
Pretty cool stuff. So, naturally, we wanted to see the new space as soon as we could! Thanks to Alliey at Sash & Bow Event Planning and her awesome connections, we were able to plan and shoot this editorial before the hotel even opened to the public. We were inspired by the perfectly-restored 1920’s glam that the hotel maintained, and we wanted to portray that in the shoot. We used the Great Gatsby as our guide and put together this lovely series of photos.
Brides, if you are looking for a venue that makes you feel like you’re not in Green Bay, one that takes you to an era long ago with tons of glam and elegance, check out Hotel Northland. You won’t be disappointed!
Sending a HUGE shout out to the following wedding friends who made this shoot happen. I will always, always be grateful for shoots that happen effortlessly because of the expertise in this area. We are truly lucky to have these people in our little area of the world.
