Real Wedding: Bethany + John in Chicago

This beautiful wedding is bursting with personality and style! Captured by T & S Hughes Photography, Bethany and John were married last June at the eclectic Salvage One in Chicago, Illinois. The couple fused modern and vintage elements to create a uniquely personal style. Being such talented musicians, both the bride and the groom graced the guests with performances. The bride wore two stunning gowns (one of which she designed herself) and each bridesmaid wore a different pink or neutral-toned dress. I love the feather touches that are carried throughout the decor, as well as the stunning five-tier ombre cake! All of the dramatic details of this wedding really come together to create an editorial-chic event.
