We first met Abby when she was in standing up in her of her best girlfriend’s weddings this past Summer and we’re incredibly glad that we did. When she let us know that she was now going to be a bride herself we couldn’t have been more excited to photograph her September wedding! Abby + Matt had been on the hunt for a venue that could host their fun, stylish soiree and they found that in Chicago’s chic City Winery. With it’s lush and greenery strewn outdoor terrace along with it’s urban and lofted reception area this hotspot is perfect the couple that loves an al fresco ceremony and can still offer an intimate reception setting indoors. We especially loved how Abby + Matt were quick to incorporate lots of little elements that were perfect for the two of them like her ukelele playing friend who serenaded guests and the appearance of a Doughnut Vault truck. Plus, with a venue already set for rocking well into the night we think that City Winery quite literally sets the stage for an awesome party. We could gush on and on about this beautiful, but we’ll let the photos do the talking!
