PHOTOGRAPHER: BRIAN CAREY, FIG MEDIA | CEREMONY: NATIONAL MUSEUM OF PUERTO RICAN ARTS + CULTURE | RECEPTION: HEADQUARTERS BEERCADE | CAKE + DOUGHNUTS: GLAZED + INFUSED, DO-RITE DONUTS | DJ: FIG MEDIA | HAIR + MAKE-UP: PIN ME UP CHICAGO

Donuts and gnomes? Could there have been a better way to celebrate Candice and Steve's wedding day? These two incredibly sweet people met all because of a small garden gnome named Sven.  This fun and unique wedding was everything AELO is about.  From the cultural venue of the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture to the fun reception at Headquarters Beercade, this wedding was non-stop fun! The wedding party entrance was right out of the TV game show, "The Price is Right", name tags and all. Candice and Steve's goal was to bring family and friends together to celebrate their love for each other in a fun and relaxed way and they sure pulled it off! Congratulations again, Candice and Steve!

It was evident in the excitement on their faces and the way they looked into each others eyes. After dinner, Amanda and Jordan danced the night away with loved ones under the immaculate Tiffany glass ceiling. The night ended with the guests serenading the bride on her 30th birthday! Congratulations Amanda and Jordan!
