Reaching for the Stars with this Astronomy Themed Wedding

As Chicago wedding planners, Back-To-School season has been our latest wedding inspiration.  We breezed through math and next on our schedule is science.  Personally, I love science and was so overwhelmed with ideas that I simply couldn't cover it in one post.  This week, our focus is Astronomy!  

“For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through love.” - Carl Sagan

This fantastic invitation set is perfect for creating a celestial ambiance.

I feel so lucky to live and work as a wedding coordinator in Chicago.  There are just so many amazing options for weddings - loft spaces, cultural centers, city parks, museums.  Anything you can imagine is available.  The Adler Planetarium is the perfect wedding venue for those who love astronomy.
