What an incredible wedding we celebrated at A New Leaf, an incredibly cozy and unique Chicago wedding venue. The venue lends itself to reception style events which encourages guests to mingle and to enjoy the gardeny and multi-level space. After dinner the upstairs is flipped into the dancing area and the real fun commences. Once in a while you’ll see outdoor areas pull guests away from a hot dance floor …but at Katy & Joe’s wedding we saw something new…and something we never imaged we’d have to deal with at A New Leaf (being such a gardeny and private space.) We had a football frenzy at the wedding reception.
Nearly everyone in the bridal party were Northwestern alums and a majority of the guests were die hard fans. With an epic game of Northwestern vs. Ohio State taking place during dinner and dancing at their wedding – Joe came prepared with an ipad and a hot spot. A bench held the tiny screen and the crowd gathered around … taking breaks from dancing to check on the score and to cheer on their beloved team. We couldn’t help but snap a photo and share.
Consider this a warning for football fanatic fiances and the danger it may impose to your dancefloor extravaganza. Also, know that dispite a Northwestern loss this wedding was a complete success and the dance floor was full until the very end.
