If you think rustic wedding don’t happen in big cities than you are clearly mistaken and this wedding will prove it! Taking place in the beautiful city of Chicago this wedding featured a stunning church wedding ceremony followed by a reception at Promontory Point. Chicago holds such much beauty that it is almost the perfect backdrop for any wedding but when you combine it with beautiful rich colors and the perfect amount of sparkle you just get perfection. I am originally from Chicago so my heart always skips a beat when I see the city and this wedding made my heart skip twice! Thanks to the talents of Elle Rose Photo for sharing this wedding with us.
A little behind the scenes info from photographer, Elle Rose Photo: Alex and Maureen’s Day was absolutely beautiful. They had some modern style mixed in with rustic, DIY touches that both represented their respective heritages. I love that the had a cake with candles, it fit the romantically lit stone space where the reception was held, along Chicago’s Lake Michigan at Promontory Point. Candles, golds, and mercury glass pieces covered the tables along with hits of gold glitter. From the handmade matchbooks to the hand-cut gold banner and the celebration straws – these two designed and made everything themselves. It was stunning from start to finish.
