This gorgeous, colorful wedding comes to us from Naturally Yours Events! Here’s more about the couple and their big day from Naturally Yours Events:

When Natalie answered a “roommate wanted” Craigslist ad, she had no idea that she would be moving in with her future husband. Soon after Natalie and Kyle started sharing an apartment in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood, they became romantically involved. A couple years later during a road trip to Colorado, Kyle proposed to Natalie.

See more after the cut!

When the wedding planning began, they knew their departure from Chicago was imminent. Natalie was to start medical school in Philadelphia in the fall of 2015. Before they moved, they wanted to have a Chicago-themed wedding to celebrate the city in which they met and fell in love (Natalie is originally from Phoenix, AZ and Kyle is from Bloomington, IL).

Their romantic ceremony started off with their adorable “flower girl” pups walked down the aisle by their junior bridesmaid and groomsman. The pups wore adorable flower crowns on their leashes. They were the star of the show until the beautiful bride walked down the aisle. It was a very sweet ceremony in which their friend officiated.

Chicago was the focus of their theme, as well as the activities they like to do together in Chicago, such as biking. The whimsical and playful invitations, designed by Naturally Yours Events, were bike themed with pink, peach, and pops of mint (the same colors used throughout their decor on the day of the wedding). Their unique guest book was a custom Blackhawks Jersey that said “Da Kingstons”!

The food provided by Goose Island Catering, stayed true to the Chicago theme. There were a bunch of different stations set up, and all of them represented a different ethnic neighborhood of Chicago and its food (Greek Town, Pilsen [Mexican], etc).
