((Kevin + Cara’s)) nature themed wedding at The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum is one for the lovebirds. Having met in college and reuniting in Chicago for medical school, the couple are two peas in a pod.
Elizabeth Nord Photography says, “Cara is a girl after my own heart with her deep love for lace, pearls, and neutral colors. Kevin is one of the most romantic men I’ve ever met…” Throughout their big day, Kevin lovingly helped Cara with her dress and often glanced her way with sincere love and affection, Elizabeth says.
The couple didn’t let one of the rainiest days of spring put a damper on their wedding. As soon as the rain let up, the bridal party headed outside from the protection of the rain to capture a few gorgeous outdoor photos (with an umbrella in tow, of course.) To calm nerves, the couple took first look photos where Cara looked absolutely flawless in her Anthropologie gown with hair swept off her neck. Kevin was extra dapper in his gray tux with cuff links found off Etsy to represent his hometown of Chicago.
Their ceremony and reception details were simple and elegant to pair well with the nature museum. The reception was held in a room upstairs lit only by candlelight and a few overhanging spotlights, creating the perfect scene for romance. ((Kevin + Cara)) served mouthwatering chocolate cake to their guests. “Even though it was pouring outside, the reception gave off a warm feeling,” says Elizabeth Nord Photography.
