Ben & Caitlin pulled off this amazing outdoorsy DIY wedding thanks to their friends and family. Ben manages an urban garden that benefits the Chicago youth and was able to utilize many of the harvests of their hard work – most of the flowers and the delicious organic gourmet aperitifs were thanks in part thanks to Ben’s green thumb. Ben and his brothers fashioned the chuppah the morning of the ceremony using branches found around the property and they used hay bales covered in blankets to provide their ceremony seating. They used packages of seeds as the table numbers. All the flowers – the bouquet, boutineers and the centerpieces were all created the morning of the ceremony.
We’re especially fond of the double breaking of the glass.
