The Big Fake Wedding Chicago was a desert oasis dream with colors of sunset and camel. Lacuna Events at LM offers a space of 25,000 square feet filled with rooftop views and unique art installations throughout. Local vendors showed their talents with amazing tastings by Blackout Baking Co., unique wedding bands by Hitched Wedding Bands, and bachelorette dance classes with FEMPRESS Fit! The bride wore a stunning fitted dress from Grace + Ivory paired with a navy suit for the groom by Suitshop.

The Inspiration:


Meet Our Featured Couple:

Melanie and Bradley originally met in the emergency room at Christ hospital during their shifts. Two months later they began talking and have been in love ever since. Three years later they got married at Navy Pier! Their family has grown with joy and they now have two boys and a dog!
