Real Weddings: Elizabeth + Alex

Elizabeth and Alex initially wanted to host their wedding at Elizabeth’s parents’ home on Chicago’s North Shore, but when their list of their nearest and dearest began to exceed 150, they decided instead to emulate the feeling of an at home event with a brunch wedding at the Chicago History Museum.  Personal details abound, including a chuppah hand-sewn by the couple’s mothers. Their beautiful reception featured long tables speckled with sweet terracotta pots and blue mason jars filled with mint, artichokes, and the most beautiful delicate blooms created by Fleur.  I just love the light and airy images from Maypole Studios!
