Lindsey and Ryan had their romantic wedding at the Museum Contemporary Art (MCA) in Chicago, Illinois, on September 16th 2017. Summer weddings in Chicago are always beautiful, and this one in particular was no exception. The color palette focused on blush tones, greenery and neturals, it was incredibly dreamy, and not to mention, perfect for a summer wedding in the City. Lindsey and Ryan showcased their personal love story throughout their wedding by adding meaning behind some of their details For example their cake topper highlighted Ryan’s home state of Colorado, and their canvas’ displayed at their reception are from Ryan’s proposal to Lindsey! So incredibly thoughtful and sweet!
Another intimate highlighted detail was the song choice during the ceremony. When Lindsey walked down the aisle to meet Ryan, the song “All of Me” by John Legend was playing, this song was the first song that Lindsey and Ryan said I Love You to one another #HeartIsMelting. We love how personal, romantic and custom their entire wedding was!
In addition to the couples intentional details (#weddinggoals) Lindsey and Ryan had so many different elements of the City present in their day. They had their first look at The Drumbar Rooftop Bar at Raffaello Hotel and then traveled via trolley around Chicago. Their pictures below showcase lush green gardens, cityscapes, rooftops as well as traditional shots too. Lindsey and Ryan’s reception utilized four different spaces at MCA – very unique and fun for their guests! Also notable, their beloved dog Maddie walked down the aisle!
This wedding was everything you should visualize of when you hear “Simply Elegant Chicago Summer Wedding.” See what we did there? Seriously though, this wedding was simply elegant in every single way. From Lindsey’s dress, to the florals, to their ceremony, to the reception, to everything in between, this day was the epitome of elegance. If we are being honest, their centerpieces alone are a reason to want a wedding that is every bit as romantic and dreamy as this one (seriously, scroll down!)
You can FEEL the romance in the images below – its effortless, its simple and we can’t get enough! Sounds about right! If you ask us, we are already counting down the days for the official start of summer weddings in Chicago. We aren’t sure if any wedding will be as romantic, elegant and gorgeous as Lindsey and Ryan’s but we do have this for inspiration, so we are thinking we can get pretty close 😉
