Minutes a way from the heart of downtown Chicago, Sally and Jesse transformed the 63rd Street Beach house into a destination wedding that included all their loved ones. Silver and glassware for the flowers and tables were collected by all of their family members from estate sales, as well as vintage handkerchiefs printed for the programs. Sally created the Save the Date notices and the envelopes for the invitations from old postcards of the 63rd street beach house from the 1930's she’d found online. Jesse’s dad made the maple syrup favors from their home in upstate New York, and Sally and Jesse’s sister created the table numbers out of maps cut from old encyclopedias, and on the opposite side they attached the menu done in calligraphy. Sally shared “We really enjoyed planning all of the little details of the wedding. Plus, it was so special that our families helped us make our vision a reality. It was a true family effort in searching for the vintage handkerchiefs, silver, suitcases, little syrup bottles, our handmade menus, table numbers, gift bags and more!
