Brenda & Joe in Chicago, IL
The Bride Brenda Skaritka, 32, a recruiter at Deloitte
The Groom Joseph (Joe) Arends, 30, a marketing manager at Leahy IFP
The Date September 10
Taking a cue from their nontraditional venue, Brenda and Joe wanted to create a contemporary-looking event. "We wanted to contrast the modern, rustic look of the venue with natural accents like moss, grass, and manzanita branches," Brenda says. Her favorite decor element was the grass ceremony aisle laid on the venue's wooden floor. A chic yellow and gray color palette suited the theme well.
