When we found out that Christina + Brad had met working on political campaigns in DC, recently moved to Detroit Rock City AND were having the very first wedding at Baderbrau Brewery in Chicago, we knew we were just going to LOVE this couple and this wedding. We were totally right. Add with on-trend greenery and florals, the chillest new venue in town, a kickass band, plus THAT DRESS, you have the makings of a killer wedding.
Christina + Brad are just about the most relaxed couple you’ll ever know, so, of course, they started their wedding day getting ready with family and friends before heading to Old St. Mary’s Catholic Church for their ceremony.
After the ceremony, Christina + Brad headed out for some photos before heading to Baderbrau to enjoy a pint before joining their guests for the the reception. They wanted to keep the energy high by dancing between courses, so the caterer, Homestead on the Roof, and the Becca Kaufman Orchestra took turns keeping guests entertained with a delicious meal (complete with the most impressive bread basket we’ve ever seen) and a packed dance floor! You know it’s a good wedding when even the wait staff wants to dance.
