Ladies (and Gents) today’s Real Modern Interfaith Wedding is why you shouldn’t skimp on your photography. In fact, make it your top priority. To have pictures like these…well, it’s true they are worth 1000 words (and memories).
Having met at Northwestern the couple now lives in Minnesota, but came back to Chicago for their wedding to change their title from “College Sweethearts” to “Chicago Wedding Sweethearts”.
The couple got ready and had their first look at the Hyatt Hotel on Wacker. The softer side of Frank quickly emerged the moment he saw Katya and it was love at first sight all over again. After a lap around the city taking photos they made their way back to the Bridgeport Art Center for their ceremony and reception.
As the night got going there were shots, toasts, dancing, more shots, more dancing and most importantly, an ice cream truck. The Bridgeport Art Center has such a large elevator that even a truck can fit inside. This let the truck roll right on into the reception hall and serve guests a fun midnight treat!
It doesn’t get any more modern than driving the midnight treat Ice Cream Truck right up to the reception floor?
It bears saying again, the fabulous city pics with the wedding party are a way to remember all the Modern Jewish Wedding details! We likey–A LOT!
We’re lovin the family style service too. Perfect compromise between buffet and table side service. (We may have even done that at a MJW we planned.)
The couple chose Rabbi Tillman, a Chicago area rabbi, who specializes in interfaith weddings to perform their ceremony.
P.S. Ladies, I have a new favorite. Please, can I get married again to wear Katya’s gorgeous wedding dress.
