From Blink Of An Eye Photography By Katie… Mary Beth and Tim are the ultimate travel bugs and always up for an adventure! Both have moved from state to state, each in different ones, and hadn’t lived in the same state since college until their wedding. They were excited for family and friends to travel to Chicago, where they were living at the time. Guests traveled to the wedding in a trolley to get the fun rolling. The ceremony was tear filled with their personal vows and beautiful lighting. After the ceremony guests headed outside to enjoy cotton candy while the wedding party headed to the carousel for photos. When they knew they would be having the wedding at the Lincoln Park Zoo they wanted to carry the animal and wilderness theme throughout their beautiful wedding and opted for greenery centerpieces instead of traditional flowers. Guests were escorted to their seats by spray painted plastic animals. The reception amped up the fun with an “UP” themed cake, animal cake pops, donuts, photo booth, caricature artist, and ended with a glow stick exit.
They have kept their relationship and life exciting by living in four different time zones, attending law school, running a marathon, and traveling to NYC, Boston, Seattle, New Hampshire, Vermont, Disney World and Mexico. Mary Beth and Tim recently moved to Santa Barbara, California for their latest adventure!
