Jaime & John were married at the Best Place at the Historic Pabst Brewery.

I wish we could bottle up their day but these photographs will have to do!  It couldn’t have been more perfect.  From our initial meeting, we knew their nontraditional wedding would be one of our favorites.  They truly made their wedding theirs, which we really, really love.

Jaime and John had a small wedding party.  A best man and a Maid of Honor.  This wasn’t their only role in the wedding though.  They also officiated and did a phenomenal job!  Jaime and John wrote their own ceremony, too.  They felt that the most important aspect to incorporate was, of course love, but also respecting the equality and uniqueness of each other in their relationship.  For their vows, they stood on a rug to resemble their separate lives weaved together – which they will keep in their home as a reminder of the promises they’ve made.   Special shout out to Pete, Jaime’s dad, for the awesome cigar bar!  And her mom, Peggy, for making the flower girls dress!  Shannon even created all of their paper goods and a monogram they used throughout the wedding planning!

Small, intimate weddings have a different vibe.  We know that everyone was there because they truly love Jaime and John. And that they love them right back! It was a true honor to be involved in their day as much as we were.  Shannon even created all of their paper goods and a monogram they used throughout the wedding planning!

Here’s how we saw their day…
