What do you get with a Midwestern couple living in LA and owning a music licensing shop called Ghost Town? FUN! What do you get with a Chicagoland childhood, hanging out in the same circle of friends growing up but not knowing it? Sweet Hannah and Chris love. It may have taken years for them to find each other right under their noses but it seems as if they’ve known each other for a lifetime already. This is a doozy of a sneak peek, so much so that their Just Married session will be a separate feature this week! Also, a big thank you to my right-hand photo woman Jessie. Enjoy this Chicago wedding sneak peek story…

Hannah’s father passed a couple years ago. She carried a charm in memory of him with her bouquet all day.

They each had co-ed bridal parties – bestest friends and family.

Hannah’s childhood home’s address is 1028 and they wed at Gallery 1028. Most of the details were designed and put together by friends and family. Modern, minimal, streamlined with a hint of handmade. I loved the typewriter guestbook!

Chris’s daughter served as a flower girl (and talented instant film photographer!). Hannah’s father’s best friend joined her and her mother down the aisle.

They were Burger Babe and Burger Dude (typed out on their escort cards). Inside joke between them, Hannah said, “It always reminded me of how much Chris and I laugh and joke around together and that was really important to me from the very start”. Gourmet burgers served all around!

Hilarious toasts of childhood stories and family memories – loved hearing about Hannah’s father’s love for 60’s music. 1st dance and family dance!

Photo booth fun! On-site scrap booking of the photos was genius! And what’s even more genius – Hannah’s 2-piece dress turned into a mini for the party! Lively music and excellent cocktails!
