Ed + Kara celebrated their love during a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony in Washington Square Park; a beautiful Chicago historic landmark. I was able to photograph this wedding with my good friend Sarah Hanson. Right in the heart of all the hustle and bustle a wonderful couple exchanged their vows in front of friends and family. Kara was a true DIY bride crafting many elements of their wedding day by hand, even her groom put a ton of work into all the special touches. A newlywed run under a rock climbing rope concluded the ceremony. Following their ceremony they hosted a reception at the Newberry Library. And who doesn’t love a little doggy ring bearer and a horse and carriage ride? What a wonderful way to start their new lives together! Congrats to Kara + Ed!
