Lauren & Jimmy's Chicago History Museum Wedding - Part 2

Part 1 of Lauren & Jimmy's wedding... When Lauren and Jimmy mentioned they wanted to hire an Abe Lincoln impersonator to walk around and greet guests during cocktail hour, I couldn't believe how perfect and fitting that was, considering their wedding was at the Chicago History Museum!! And when I met Honest Abe (aka Max Daniels), I was blown away... and guests definitely got a kick out of this! Photos by Steve Koo Photography.

The Chicago Room was the perfect space... EP2 brought in giant ferns to break up the long room and create a sense of height and visual interest. We kept the centerpieces simple with pops of orange, but mostly white and green flowers and ferns.
