plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

It’s fun to see a couple choose a venue that provides a few different backdrops – and the The Ivy Room in Chicago does just that. Cheryl and Chris chose the venue because it allowed their guests to enjoy the city scape and a beautiful outdoor space.

But the unique thing about Cheryl and Chris is not the fact that they dreamt up a wonderful fun and beautiful wedding. It’s the fact that they channeled their active lifestyle, by incorporating bicycles throughout the day. And, it’s the fact that they both ran a 10-mile race together the morning of the wedding!
