plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

I will never ever tire of city weddings. My love of the city comes in a close second behind my love of the mountains. It’s hard to beat city lines, skyscrapers and the urban and modern feel. Add a wedding to it, and bam, you have a modern soiree.

If you look beyond the joys of a city wedding, you’ll also find a lot of love in Lauren and Stu’s big day. Personal elements. A traditional Jewish ceremony (of which included them signing the Ketubah during). An emotional (and love-filled) first look. A stunning Chicago skyline view from the 67th floor of the Metropolitan Club. I hope you enjoy the city details in their wedding as much as I did!
