Anthony and Bill wanted to have their wedding in their favorite Chicago restaurant which is seriously the COOLEST idea for an intimate wedding. The two of them gathered their closest friends in their favorite place for a super low-key day and personal wedding day.
We got ready together at their Chicago home. Both men wore their custom suits, and incorporated a bit of pink into their decor as one of their favorite shows of all time is Mean Girls Broadway. October 3rd was the wedding date in honor of the iconic scene.

Getting Ready for their Rainy Intimate Wedding
Anthony and Bill took their morning slow taking their time as they got ready for their wedding day. Their custom suits hung in their doorway. Their florist stopped by to pre-pin their boutonnieres before they got ready for their ceremony at their favorite restaurant.
We had our uber drop us off about a block away from the wedding venue so we could stop by one of their favorite bars in town before continuing on to Vincents in Andersonville to meet the rest of their closest friends to celebrate.
The Intimate Ceremony and Reception
Bill and Anthony had beautiful floral arrangements done by Flowerlife Chicago for their intimate wedding ceremony, along with their boutonnières and a centerpiece for their table at home. I love how they incorporated touches of their wedding colors subtly throughout their fall wedding.
Once their friends arrived they began their intimate wedding with their best friend as their officiant. Bill and Anthony are some of the sweetest individuals I’ve met. It was so special seeing them get married at their favorite Chicago restaurant for such an intimate wedding surrounded by their closest humans.
After their ceremony we spent the night exchanging stories laughing amongst friends and sipping wine. I am so excited and blessed to be able to celebrate part two with them October 3rd of 2021!
