Lori and Mike were married on stage at Chicago Dramatists. How many couples can say that? “We didn’t want an extravagant affair or cookie cutter style of wedding,” Lori said. “I wanted personal touches with doses of originality.” The bride wore a tea-length wedding gown, accessorized with a birdcage veil and “something blue” shoes whereas the groom wore a three-piece suit with a plaid bow tie. Guests watched the ceremony from the theatre’s seats and applauded when they share their first kiss. The reception was held in a loft with floor to ceiling windows. To help create a rustic yet vintage vibe, Lori purchased burlap table runners and colored ribbons for chairs. “For the centerpieces, I envisioned aqua-colored mason jars, complemented with mismatched bud vases, with more of a wildflower style,” she said.
