Alex and Anna are high school sweethearts who tied the knot on their 10-year dating anniversary in an intimate ceremony surrounded by their closest friends and family at the London House in Chicago, IL.
Anna spent the morning getting dolled up by Erin Graham Hair and Murphy’s Beauty Law with her mother and soon-to-be mother-in-law in a gorgeous suite above the hustle & bustle of the city below. The excitement in the room was palpable! Anna slipped into her sleek Alyssa Kristin dress, pearl veil, Jimmy Choo shoes, and finished her look with a classic bouquet by Willrett Flower Company. She met Alex in the iconic cupola at the top of the London House for their first look, where many tears were shed and sweet embraces were shared. Soon after, their immediate families arrived decked out in their sleekest black-tie attire, and settled into the cupola for the intimate ceremony led by Kari with Wedding Day Chicago. Anna and Alex shared personal vows and after ten years together, there wasn’t a dry eye in the place. Following their first kiss as Mr. & Mrs., they celebrated with champagne and hugs with their closest people.
Anna and Alex finished their perfectly intimate evening with a romantic reception at Gibson’s Italia. The table was adorned with gorgeous, ivory floral arrangements and warm, glowy candles. The golden glow of the buildings and the sparkle of the river were the perfect backdrop to spend their first night as husband and wife.
