"Love in its purest form is biology" - Ron Currie Jr.
This week we will rap up part two of our science-themed weddings. As Chicago wedding planners, we have researched some spectacular ideas that give the nod to life science.
I have always loved vintage botanical illustrations and these lush green invitations carry on this aesthetic. Whimsical animal silhouettes also speak to our life sciences theme.

Once again, I have to flaunt my favorite city. Chicago's captivating Shedd Aquarium, Lincoln Park and Garfield Park Conservatories, Lincoln Park Zoo and amazing Field Museum are enough to cover all of your life science bases. Of course, all of these attractions have multiple wedding spaces.
