AELO Alumni Sherry + Noah, 8/28/16

VENUE: WINNETKA COMMUNITY HOUSE | CATERER: CATERED BY DESIGN | PHOTOGRAPHY: BRAXTON BLACK WITH JEREMY LAWSON PHOTOGRAPHY | BAKERY: OAK MILL BAKERY | FLORIST: LARKSPUR | DJ: STYLE MATTERS | HAIR + MAKEUP: ANN MARIE WEINHART, BEAUTY PARLOR CHICAGO

What do you get when two people who met in chemistry class get married? An amazing unity chemistry demo (it turned pink!), incredibly intelligent clients, and the danciest dance party of all time. Sherry and Noah were married on an absolutely gorgeous day in August, and we just loved being a part of their day! Between the incredibly touching MOB toast, the cutest first look ever, the sweet ceremony, and the dancing PhDs, it was a night to remember! Just look at those smiles. These two could not be ANY cuter. Braxton Black captured it perfectly. 

Congratulations, you gorgeous, wonderful people!
