Josh and Jennifer’s Wedding at Uptown Baptist Church
Josh and Jennifer's wedding at Uptown Baptist Church and Atwood Cafe in Chicago.
Yesterday (yes, on a Monday), my dear friend Josh got married to his fiancee Jennifer in a wedding at Uptown Baptist Church with a reception at Atwood Cafe in Chicago, Illinois.
They were originally going to get married in June, but decided to buck it and move the wedding up to December (no, no she is not pregnant). Jennifer came in from Korea on Friday (no, no she was not a mail-order bride), they went and got their license, and slightly over 24 hours later they were set to be married!
The wedding was small. She wore a red dress. They didn’t walk down the aisle and instead just went up to the front and announced to everyone that their wedding would be starting. They exchanged vows and rings and a kiss (a very long kiss…hey, she’s been in Korea for the last year!), and then we all went out to dinner at Atwood Cafe. It was a really amazing wedding because they didn’t do really anything “traditional” just because it’s “traditional.” It wasn’t fussy. They just wanted to get married, and they did it their way.
And did I mention that they had the fabulous sense to hire me as their wedding photographer?
So…I have a million photos to go through. But here are a few highlights of Josh and Jennifer’s wedding at Uptown Baptist Church and their reception dinner at Atwood Cafe in Chicago….
