I felt a kinship with Charlotte and Alex from our first meeting, when we bonded over a shared love of travel, food, cocktails, banjos and accordions. This lovely couple held their ceremony and reception at a gorgeous loft on the west side of Chicago, Room 1520 and its Aeree and Sky Lofts. During the cocktail hour, I mentioned to Jacqueline that in many ways, this wedding was reminiscent of the wedding I would love to someday have. Everything about the day was thoughtful and personal—so Charlotte and Alex. The decor by my wonderful friends at Hello Darling evoked a southern-garden feel, while still feeling appropriate in the urban space. Alex’s musical friends provided a fantastic interlude during the ceremony, and another took an amazing turn on the harmonica during the reception. Toasts were personal, the food was artistic and delicious, their families were just the most amazing, and laughter abounded all the way from the processional through the last of the dancing.
