Ceremonies of All Sorts (Garden Weddings Part 2)

This next group of photos you are going to see are from ceremonies that have taken place outdoors.  I am always cautious of weddings outdoors in Chicago.  The heat, the rain, the snow (you never know!), can be the cause of ceremonies not happening outside.  Having a back up plan is a must and most times, it all turns out ok!  Take  a look at some of these great ceremonies I caught on my iPhone while they were happening!

This wedding took place at the Chicago Botanic Gardens.  There is a lily pond in front of the bride and groom and the guests are seated in the round.  There was no need for any additional floral to the garden, accept for the bouquets and boutonnieres by Event Creative.

Here we are at The Ivy Room.  In the heart of the big city, there lies a magical garden, surrounded by buildings and all you hear is a whisper of automobile traffic.  Again, in this garden, no floral was necessary except for the bouquets by Davenport Designs.

The final look is at The Lincoln Park Conservatory, where again, no floral was needed as the garden served perfectly as the back drop. The bride and bridesmaids carried bouquets and the groom and groomsmen had boutonnieres designed by Stems.
