Oh my goodness you guys, I can’t wait till you scroll down to see all the gorgeousness from Michael and Sammy’s Hubbard Inn wedding!! Not only was it absolutely gorgeous (I mean, how could it not with these two cuties), but the ceremony was probably the sweetest I’ve ever seen! So much thought and meaning went into this ceremony… between the handwritten vows to the giving of flowers to the parents, to the merging of red and white wine to make a rose that they plan to recreate every year on their anniversary, we were all in tears.
Michael and Sammy got ready at the beautiful Godfrey Hotel. I was in detail heaven with everything Sammy incorporated! Her love for rose gold was evident in her robe, wedding ring, and jewelry and her shoes were purchased in Ireland, where Michael proposed to her. Michael surprised Sammy with a large bouquet of red roses, a rose gold bracelet, and a shadowbox filled with momentos of their life together. SO sweet! They had their first look in a private space on the rooftop complete with perfect windows that backlit them so perfectly.
Their wedding day was incredibly rainy, but you wouldn’t tell it by the photos! I don’t mind rain…It’s good luck, after all! We all piled into the Zed451 shuttle bus to go to a remote location in the west loop for their portraits. And I have to say – I’m obsessed with this wall, guys! You’ll just have to see what I’m talking about…SWOON!
Their wedding ceremony and reception was at the Hubbard Inn, a super unique hotel and restaurant venue! I’ve personally been there for brunch a few times and it’s AMAZING. Had to put that out there, just in case I have some brunch loving readers 🙂 Their attention to detail at the reception was remarkably personal and spoke so true to them as a couple. They included their engagement photos (which I always get a big smile from!) as well as vintage suitcases, a popcorn machine, and cupcakes! YUM!
I’m so incredibly happy for you guys and am so lucky to have you both as friends! I can’t wait to see where your exciting and beautiful future together takes you!
