Matt and I tied the knot on 11.11.11 in Chicago. Our ceremony took place on the 94th floor of the John Hancock Center and we had a dinner afterwards at a restaurant called Tru. We had seven guests, which consisted only of parents and siblings. It was a really nice, low stress way to mark the occasion and I'm really happy we chose to get married this way after considering a lot of other options (big wedding, wedding in Ann Arbor, DIY backyard wedding, etc).
I'll talk about it in more detail once I get more photos to share. I'm still waiting for them to trickle in from our friends and family who all acted as photographers for the occasion. You'll see that I did end up wearing my glasses and I found a dress with sleeves, yay! Also the dress is a Lela Rose, which I found on Shopbop for 70% off. This was really exciting because I had lusted after a Lela Rose dress from the very beginning but had assumed it would be out of my price range. The quality is incredible and now I'm looking for other fancy occasions where I can wear it. New Years?
I'll definitely do a more comprehensive wedding recap later on. We did a pretty non-traditional, low key wedding and I don't think there are enough online resources for how to plan a celebration like this.
