missy + tu + the university of chicago.

Missy + Tu met at University of Chicago and reunited there in March with family and friends to say their vows.  A gorgeous ceremony at Rockefeller Memorial Chapel followed by an ear-splitting party at the Quadrangle Club.  They currently live in California and were the most laid-back couple about all of their planning (in other words) a total joy to work with!  They made me work though: with nine bridesmaids and nine groomsmen I was prepared for a challenge!  After working with them though, it was easy to see why they had 18 people stand up for them on their wedding day: they are truly loved and all of their friends and family went above and beyond to make their day fantastic (and my job a joy!)  Here’s how it all went down:


You know “the sprinkler” completes any great wedding.  Even better when the cutest little guy ever is making it happen.  Congrats Missy + Tu: many, many more happy days to come!
