The theme for this week is Chicago. Kidding! Well, sort of... As you know, bridey, I don't do themes, but this week apparently I do; inadvertently!! Granted, I love Chicago (that's where I'm from), but to post two weddings this week from Chicago is purely a happy accident! Maybe I'm homesick. I guess I'll talk to my shrink about it...
Anyway, I do love it when a B+G decide to get married in a bar. No, I don't have a drinking problem, but celebrating your wedding outside of a ballroom is certainly a nice break from the norm. April and David's wedding day started at the Westin River North and ended at Chicago's Revolution Brewery. The intimate ceremony and reception were hosted at the brewery; a steep yet stunning contrast to the peach and ivory florals rocked by the bride and on the tables. Giant beer barrels offered spectacular décor, and tours of the brewery were just a few of the unique aspects of April and David's kickass Chicago wedding! Enjoy!
I love every.single.thing. captured in these pics! Seriously, I may have to break down and buy those Jimmy's, I'd absolutely wear those black bridesmaids dresses, and the rock? DAMN.
More diamonds. Stunning...
WOW. Just WOW.
April, you and your dad are SO cute together!! I bet you two have a lot of fun!
Ta-da!!! The B+G shared their first look along the upper level of the beautiful riverwalk just outside of the hotel.
Okay... What the fuck is that? A balloon? Why is it there?
Love the passion behind this kiss.
I can't stop looking at Molly's eyelashes (and her gorge cleavage, right?)! Seriously, this is such a beautiful shot of the bride and groom that I can't stop noticing the subtle, and not so subtle details! Bridey, Molly and Paul nailed it! Their winter wedding kicked ASS! And, as you get to know them through these magnificent photographs, you'll see what I mean. They got married at Salvage One, a swanky storefront in Chicago, whose main focus "works to preserve and pass on our history", but also rocks amazingly cool space for edgy weddings and events.
But, beyond the paramount venue, Molly and Paul threw a fantastic party! Great food, great booze and a ton of dancing! I seriously think there was some break dancing happening (I mean... the groom is laying on the dance floor at one point, so clearly, I'm only left to assume that it was due to break dancing!!)! Enjoy the party, bridey!
I'll take the earrings and the shoes please!Molly! I love that you are smiling in every single picture!!That BHLDN dress is STUN NING!!! Looks gorge on you!C'mon peeps! Drinks before we hit the lakeshore for pics? Warm us up a bit?Love the foggy Chicago skyline behind them!I know it's near the zoo, but I have no idea what it's called.... Super cool structure.Fabulous!Simple, yet there is so much to look at...OMG. Paul, you're a cutie!Shut the fuck up! OMG! Love the cool, raw space, the wood tables and the mismatched chairs!
