Sally & Tom: Urban Oasis

Sally and Tom brought a beachy vibe to the heart of downtown Chicago.  The clean, white lines of the Art Institute were the perfect backdrop for the sandy tans and baby blues, creating an urban oasis for the happy couple and their guests. Check out the fantastic photos of the event by John Andrews Photography!

The ceremony was performed at Grace Lutheran Church in La Grange.

Bubbles filled the air as the Bride & Groom exited the church.
After some photos around Chicago, the couple entered the Art Institute via the Nichols Bridgeway.

Framed photos of past family wedding portraits decorated the guestbook table.
High and low centerpieces created texture in the reception room.
Menu cards informed guests of the delicious meal to come.
With cupcakes and an ice cream bar, the food was never-ending.  As the guests departed, they topped off the night with a box of Tate's Chocolate Chip Cookies from the favor display.
Guests had a blast taking photos during the reception and posting them on a photo board.
As a wedding coordinator, I sometimes have to put on my negotiating hat. It took some convincing, but we got the bridge opened back up to capture some great night shots of the city lights.

Congratulations Sally and Tom!
