Alex and Glenn were OVERFLOWING with ideas for their wedding. Alex's Indian heritage was featured during the ceremony overlooking Lake Michigan in Chicago by focusing on a stunning mehndi-inspired aisle runner. They held it at the spectacular Adler Planetarium(!) which capitalized on Glenn's love of constellations. Think outer space colors like deep fuchsia, purple, and blue, and “under the sea”-themed invitation suite, centerpieces featuring constellations and sea creatures.
The funniest part? Their wedding planner took one for the team and busted a move on the dance floor as a top-hat wearing ring bear. Glenn had dreams of a bear at the wedding and this was as close as they dared get. Oh! And there was a mini version at the ceremony, too. It was animals meets ocean meets space and it was AMAZING.
Don't miss the two epic dresses the bride wore, the fabulous dragon cake, and the constellation coloring book…
