Wedding: Susan & Julie

From Julie and Susan: After Julie and Susan got engaged in Cambodia, they knew they didn’t want typical fairytale wedding with veils, grandiose cakes and give-away Dads. Their wants were pretty simple: an authentic day with a touch of tradition and a ridiculously fun party. They decided on a restaurant named Osteria Via Stato close to their home in downtown Chicago. The venue was perfect for their 120-person ceremony, followed by great food, wine and a live band who played everything from Madonna to songs that honored Julie’s New Orleans roots.

Even though the weather was ridiculously cold, the warmth from Julie and Susan that day was enough to warm the city. If their smiles are an indication of their love, they will live happily ever after and continue to write their own version of a fairy tale every day.
