Our vintage Chicago wedding

Our wedding photos are here! I am so excited to share with you all my and Evan’s wedding, which we celebrated on November 11, 2017 in Chicago. It’s been a long, but amazing journey to get to where we are now, but we’re happily married and ready to spill all the details so please enjoy our photos and moments from our wedding. 🙂


A chilly Chicago November was the perfect backdrop for our late fall wedding. We married at my alma mater, Loyola University Chicago, in their chapel and the reception was held at Ravenswood Event Center. I am in absolute love with my dress from BHLDN, the vintage style was the inspiration for most of our decor choices.Wedding-Photo-69Wedding-Photo-46Wedding-Photo-52Wedding-Photo-248The amazing duo of Brooke and Emma at Arch Apothecary were the beauty babes behind my vintage inspired curls and dark lips.Wedding-Photo-271

I scored this coat years ago at a vintage store in Cleveland for $40! It was so beautiful and such a steal that I knew it would come in handy one day.


After the ceremony along Lake Michigan, we hopped a trolley to the reception. Ravenswood Event Center is an industrial warehouse filled with vintage cars, neon lights, and tons of exposed brick. Our brilliant photographer, Anna Zajac, used the lights and cars for a fun photo session with the bridal party.


We all joked that we felt like we were on a movie set with the posing, glitter, and lights!


I worked with Sprout Home to develop my oversized organic bouquet (see my longer post on florals here!) and I was beyond excited about the result. They are true artists at Sprout and really know their stuff.


I found these adorable seat tags for our parents via Etsy.


Decor included pops of mint, gold, green, and navy. The centerpieces are homemade! Evan and I spent a lot of time browsing used bookstores and antique malls for the right shade and style of books. Playing off a literary theme, the place card holders double as a mini typewriter and photo holder, the table numbers/ book return cards are from Etsy, and the mint menus are from Minted.

In case you missed it, see my detailed longer post on our centerpiece arrangements.


And these Hill Country candles are from California company P.F. Candle Co. Sadly the scent is out of production, but they still have loads of other yummy options.

The reception included vinyl tracks spun by Cage and Aquarium, hot cider and assorted pies from Bang! Bang! Pie Shop, and lots and lots of dancing!

A HUGE thank you to all our vendors, friends, and family for helping make our day so full of love.
