Megan and Luke held a lovely classic wedding in Evanston, Illinois with ceremony at Northwestern's Alice Millar Chapel and reception at Woman's Club of Evanston. The area is surrounded by wonderful ivy-covered bulidings around the campus of Northwestern University, which made it a fantastic area to walk around for portraits, as well as an enjoyable stroll for guests walking from the church to reception.

Beauty services were by Holly Kasprisin of Chicago Bridal Hair and Makeup, using the airbrush technique for applying makeup.
Peony pink flowers with peweter gray were the colors used throughout the wedding fashions and decor. The bride found her perfect Augusta Jones gown at A'Lamour in Barrington, along with her Vera Wang flats and accessories.
The bride and groom did not want to see each other before the ceremony, so the fellas played a few hands of poker, while the gals stopped for portraits at a classic Northwestern University ivy-draped building.
After the ceremony, bridesmaids passed out bells for everyone to ring in celebration as Megan and Luke made their grand exit from the church.
Jim Bailey of J&L Catering coordinated the reception, with stunning floral work by Zuzu's Petals, and wedding cake by Oak Mill Bakery. The bride designed several items, including escort cards, menues, photo booth cards and the table numbers.
To begin the reception, instead of traditional introductions, the bridal party borrowed photo booth props and danced a conga line into the ballroom. That was fun! Andre from J Maximillan Entertainment performed splendidly as emcee and deejay.
For their first dance, Megan and Luke swayed to "Lucky" by Jason Mraz. We certainly felt lucky to have been part of this wonderful couple's wedding!
