We booked Ashley and Kyle sometime last year and they quickly became the #1 supplier of funny cat videos to my Facebook page, and for that I’m forever grateful. At their wedding they had a large wall of personal photos and later in the night I was checking them out, only to discover a photo of Ashley taken at about 5 or 6 at her birthday party, wearing a seriously badass Lion King shirt and sitting next to a giant cat cake and a pile of Lisa Frank cat-themed party hats. We would’ve totally been elementary school BFFs, but now we’ll just have to settle for 30-some BFFS who still celebrate their birthdays with Lisa Frank party hats (I just found a pack of 8 cat ones on Etsy for $10.80. Let’s do this).

Regarding their wedding, it was awesome and comic booked themed! They had different characters at each table, and Kyle gave me permission to open one of his older Batman ones to use for the ring shots, which made me kind of nervous, but also feel super cool. This also gave me the opportunity to look at the sweet ads for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle cereal. Anyway – it was super neat, and super indicative of the offbeat adorableness of Ashley and Kyle that makes us love them so much. Congratulations, guys!

Kathy and Andrew are the best. We had only met Kathy for our consult about their wedding as Andrew had already moved to Chicago (Kathy was following him shortly… not in a creepy following way, but more of a fiancé-following way). We adored Kathy, and likewise adored Andrew when he introduced himself to us at their rehearsal not because he knew who we were, but because “I saw a beard and thought I was familiar with all the beards associated with this wedding.”

They had a wedding full of awesome places and ridiculous pictures… the girls scrambled to get ready while the guys got ready for about 5 seconds and then watched SNL Celebrity Jeopardy videos. We had no control over the bridal party who operated like one big mind of crazy (but crazy in a funny-good way). “Okay, guys, now we’re going to take a picture across the street!” (nobody follows, I turn around). “Oh, okay, you’re playing basketball now. We’ll go with that then.” We loved them. They were all awesome. They also had a groomsmen named Geoff who also had a beard.

We also loved them because they ended their night with an afterparty at Neptunes playing pingpong. Because who doesn’t love a bride and groom playing pingpong at midnight on a Sunday downtown? Guys, we hope you like these pictures so that we can come stay with you in Chicago without any weirdness.
