From Anticipation Events...Megan + Parker were married at Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum in May. They had a Memorial Day weekend brunch wedding in Chicago, which if you're as obsessed with mimosas and Bloody Mary's as we are, then you know we were a match made in wedding heaven. We rehearsed in their downtown apartment and then they went off to dinner and caught a show at Chicago's beloved Second City.

Sunday morning, Megan got up really early to get ready so luckily she had some serious help from their adorable daughter Olivia. Megan + Parker chose not to see each other before the wedding, but they did say hello before walking down the aisle. T&S Hughes Photography and I set them up on either end of a door outside the museum so they could squeeze hands quickly and calm each others’ nerves before we lined them up and sent them down the aisle to say “i do!” We took care of some incredibly charming details inside: vintage rentals, board games and chalkboards made this brunch casual, but still oh so sophisticated.

The dessert table got some extra special attention. Megan used to work at Milwaukee Cupcake Company so her old boss brought cupcakes down especially for the wedding. We supplemented with loads of popcorn, cookies, doughnuts and candy. Seriously, their guests had brunch and then a boatload of dessert? Genius! I loved working on this brunch wedding with Megan + Parker and celebrating with their family and friends. They were so kind, grateful and easy to be around and for all of the vendors it was a fun twist on the typical dinner reception.
