William and Claire were married on a warm Chicago summer day at Lincoln Park’s gorgeous Cafe Brauer. Though neither are from Chicago, the couple have made their home in Chicago for the past 6 years and their friends were an important part of their big day. Their best friend officiated the ceremony, while others dear to the couple sang and played the ceremony music. William is a music teacher and classically trained singer, and both sang to Claire during the ceremony and played Somewhere Over the Rainbow for Claire and her father’s reception dance. The historical reception hall is beautiful on its own and needed little more than gorgeous centerpieces from Stems and romantic candlelight for ambiance. Claire’s Enzoani dress is light and airy, and fresh makeup and loose waves by Sonia Roselli accented the gown’s beautiful lace. We’re head over heels for the beautiful images from Natalie Probst Photography!
