Karen and Bill wanted a stylish urban forest wedding in Chicago, and somehow managed to bring in so much of nature into a chic city space. Air plants, succulents, ferns, logs, herbs, and manzanita branches created the most lush forest we've seen in a wedding yet… without actually being a forest, of course!

For a little nerdery in their ceremony, they used Star Trek: The Next Generation theme. Every nerd needs a niche, especially in a wedding as fab as this one. Oh, and when you see their late night snacks (think a fry bar and s'mores!), you'll be ogling. Want to see?

  1. Everything about this wedding, the decor, and bride are so beautiful! It made me wish the photographer had used a more elegant watermark to brandish his/her name all over the photos. That big white font was all I could see!
