Art Institute of Chicago Wedding | Betina and Mark

That couple whose faces you can’t see up there is Betina and Mark.  And those beautiful stained glass windows that you see illuminated behind them are Marc Chagall’s America Windows, made famous by a certain film about a certain guy skipping school.  A little further down in the post, you’ll see Betina and Mark and their wedding party in front of a Jackson Pollock painting.  That’s because Betina and Mark had their wedding and reception at one of the most impressive art institutions in the world, The Art Institute of Chicago.  What a dream come true for art geeks, right?  Take a look at their big day…

And that my friends is the story of how Betina married Mark in an art museum.  Thank you so very much Betina and Mark for having me be a part of your story.  It was fantastic to have the chance to get to know you both over the past few months, and between you and me, I’m never going to forget those awesome toasts at your wedding.  Six, huh?  😉
