City Hall elopement with all the Chicago vibes


When David and Sophie told me they picked their wedding date because it was a palindrome (91019), I knew I was going to like these two. Then they told me they booked a party bus so we could travel around the city with their family and friends for photos, and my love for them was sealed!

David and Sophie got married at Chicago's City Hall, and made the best of every moment. The bus picked everyone up at their apartment in Logan Square, and we headed straight for City Hall where they got married. one of the sweetest moments of the ceremony was when the judge asked them to hold hands and said the following: “The hands that you clasp together now are the hands that will hold one another close, wipe away each other's tears and cheer one another on.”

After the ceremony, we all piled back onto the bus and made several stops around the city, including the Riverwalk, Millennium Park, Buckingham Fountain, and the beautiful city views from the museum campus.

After photos, we rode the bus back to Logan Square to meet some more friends for a beautiful warm-weather dinner at Longman & Eagle.
