State Fair Wedding, Fall 2012

Here is a little glimpse into the State Fair-themed wedding and reception held at the Joffrey Ballet studios in the fall.  There was a certain studied casualness about the affair, from the lack of a cocktail hour to the family-style dinner to the decor.  All photos on this page by Ann & Kam Photography and Cinema.

The ceremony was under a chuppah, the frame of which was made by friends and the covering of which was an heirloom family lace tablecloth.  Photo by Ann Oleinik.
