A comedy club was the perfect setting for this Chicago teacher and Chicago cop to get married.  Not only do these two love to make each other laugh, Jeanne, the bride, is a comedian as well.  This fun, easy going couple actually knew each other as kids and reconnected later as adults.  This wedding had a relaxed atmosphere filled with laughter, dancing, and great food. Congratulations Jeanne and Dan!

Love The Big Bang Theory? This one is for you. Kate and Stephen are both brilliant Chemical Engineers who met in college, fell in love, and got married in an awesome science-inspired wedding. From their out-of-the box venue, Ignite Glass Studio, to their centerpieces set in beakers, test tubes and urban meyer flasks, to the coolest lego card box we've ever seen, Kate and Stephen's happily ever after began with a colorful bang. We had a wonderful time planning with them, and wish them all the best! Congratulations, you two!

What an incredible couple. Recently transplanted to Ohio, these two psychologists had a beautiful day in October to get married! An emotional ceremony was followed by an awesome glass blowing demonstration, an excellent dinner from Blue Plate, and a hopping dance floor! We had so much fun planning with these two; they're so connected to each other and gorgeous to boot!

Congratulations, Laura + Brad! We wish you all the success and happiness the world has to offer!

Sweet. Hilarious. Adorable. So in love. It doesn't get any better than clients like Tammy and Joe. Their down-to-earth, book-themed wedding was so much fun to coordinate, and that first look photo will never get old! We loved their short'n'sweet ceremony that celebrated the two of them, and the decoupaged vases were simple and perfect. Their wedding party was called their "Matrimony Homies" instead of bridesmaids and groomsmen, which we loved! 

And did we mention that Tammy walked down the aisle to her friend and bridesmaid Stephanie playing "Forever" by Jesse and the Rippers on piano? What else can we even say? Awesome wedding, awesome people, and we wish them all the best!

Finding a librarian's wedding venue was so much fun! The Quad Club was teh perfect setting for these two lovebirds. They are so in love, and their ceremony reflected that so well. The reading from a children's book about penguin's was perfect, and we loved their huge atlas as a guest book! We loved everything about this wedding, even though it rained all day! The rain didn't put a damper on these two cuties. It was just perfect. Congratulations, you two!
