Hannah and Patrick have been friends of mine since college, and I was so honored to be a part of their big day! They are such a fun-loving couple and were all smiles and laughs, despite the wind and rain that day.
The bridal party got ready at the Conrad Chicago in matching floral robes. When the beautiful bride stepped into her Pronovias wedding dress, the bridesmaids snapped photos to capture the special moment. Hannah completed her stunning look with a vintage purse and a BHLDN belt. Pistil & Vine provided the floral, which completed the girls’ looks with classic bouquets of ivory, peach and a touch of green.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the Conrad Chicago, the groomsmen stayed well hydrated and in good spirits while enjoying gorgeous city views before heading off to the ceremony!
The ceremony took place at Saint Clement Church, nestled right in the heart of Lincoln Park. After the ceremony, guests celebrated the newlyweds with ribbon wands under umbrellas before the bridal party took off to take pictures around the city.
Hannah and Patrick got engaged on Lincoln Park Zoo’s Kissing Bridge, so coming back to this area was a must on their wedding day!
Guests gathered at Galleria Marchetti for the reception, under the newly renovated tent. Pistil & Vine carried the day’s soft, romantic look through with lanterns, mercury glass and a hint of blush for each table’s centerpiece.
Childhood photos of the bride and groom accompanied the table numbers.
The wedding cake and cupcakes were courtesy of Hannah and Patrick’s close family friend. The desserts didn’t stop there though. The couple incorporated their alma mater into the festivities with an Indiana University sweets table filled with red and white candy for guest’s to take home with them at the end of the evening.
The evening continued with many laughs, and Standing Room Only kept the dance party going well into the night. I could not have imagined a more beautiful wedding day for such a wonderful couple!
