Retro Chicago Wedding: Molly + Patrick

As a product of, Molly + Patrick had a strong connection from the start. Over the 9 months of planning their wedding, they really loved working together to create their perfect day. Since they both love all things vintage, Salvage One was the perfect venue location. They also love good music, good food + good beer, so there was plenty of that to be had. :) They said toasts with growlers of beer from Revolution Brewery, their favorite local brewery just down the street from where they live. Thanks to Jeremy Lawson for the lovely photos and to A Florae, their floral designer, for sending this wedding my way!

From Molly, Seeing everyone wave our “hoo-ray” flags as we walked back down the aisle was such a wonderful feeling.

Our Favorite Memory From The Wedding

The best part of our night was thanking all of our family and friends for joining us that evening by serenading them with a few tunes. We have so much to be thankful for and we wanted to share that with everyone.
