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?
