An Urban Micro-Wedding in a Chicago Oasis

Anu & Chris

Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool | RPM Italian

Chicago, Illinois

Anu & Chris’ wedding was small in attendance, but huge in heart. With just four guests in-person, they said their vows at one of the most serene spots in the heart of Chicago: the edge of Lincoln Park’s Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool. They were joined by more than 60 friends and family members from all over the U.S., Switzerland, and India via Zoom. It was a deeply heartfelt celebration, officiated by Karen Kaufman of Original Ceremonies. Anu’s hair was by We Only Do Pretty, and her flowers were designed by Elena’s Garden. After their ceremony, we went down to Michigan Avenue for some portraits with iconic Chicago scenery, and then to RPM Italian for a private dinner followed by a petite, gold-flecked wedding cake crafted by Bittersweet Pastry Shop.
