Newberry Library Literary Themed Wedding

Margaret and Brian's love for all things literary was reflected throughout their wedding from the invitations and renting a school bus to centerpieces and table names (the head table was "The Great Gatsby", their favorite book - how cute is that, ya'll?!). The Newberry Library, a landmark in Chicago since 1887, couldn't have been a more perfect venue for these book-lovers to host their guests on such a special day.  

Every part of the wedding was perfectly thought out and both families were intimately involved in the planning. Margaret's grandmother did all the alterations to her dress, hand glittered her shoes and added a piece of her mother's wedding dress to where the bustle buttoned. During the ceremony, Margaret and Brian placed notes that they had written to each other in a box that her dad made, along with a bottle of wine, to open on their 5 year anniversary or "in case of emergency".

This was definitely one of my favorite weddings to date - hope ya'll enjoy!
