Holly & Skip: Beauty Under the Sea

With a wedding reception at Shedd Aquarium, the design and decor of Holly & Skip's purple and green wedding centered on the beautiful features of the sea.  Check out the wonderful photos by Ben Pancoast Photography.

The ceremony took place at the gorgeous St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Evanston.  Don't ya just love those vaulted ceilings? The flower girls tossed fragrant lavendar instead of petals.

We got a beautiful summer day for the wedding.  I snapped this quick photo of the programs -- lovely purple and white fans to help guests stay cool.

This gorgeous bouquet was done by Joanne Leiman of Flowers Flowers.

Such a unique escort card table! Each seating card was shaped like a sea creature.

After the cocktail hour, guests were treated to a live dolphin show!

The tables circled the glowing Caribbean Reef.

I snapped this photo of this beautiful tablescape.  Each table was named after a sea creature, and guests dined up close to sea life swimming past.

Another photo by me of the cake table, adorned with candles and crystals.  

I love this photo by Ben Pancoast, capturing the fireworks display that guests got to watch from the Lakefront Terrace.

Congratulations to Holly & Skip!
