Matt and Kelly's hip Chicago wedding had a private ceremony in the lounge at Logan Theatre in Chicago, and then a giant party/rock show with their favorite soul band The Hemispheres. They even flew in guest lead singer Todd Hembrook for the event!

In between the ceremony and reception, they went to local pizza place Boiler Room for photos in their beer garden, which was a must for Kelly. They had their first date there and she knew immediately when they got engaged she wanted to make an appearance in her wedding dress.

Their mutual affinity for comic books and sci-fi appeared in a few places including Kelly's custom-made comic book shoes. Matt's cousin officiated the ceremony, incorporating their love of movies. Let's see how these two comic book and movie nerds rock out in Chicago…
