In celebration of Be U Weddings’ 200th post, we bring you an exquisite outdoor wedding, so beautifully captured by the talented Diane Askew Photography. While this fanciful fête took place at a private residence in California, you can attain a similar look and feel right here in Chicago, using our carefully selected vendor recommendations listed below. We adore the pretty paper parasols and think they’re be a clever, yet charming addition to any outdoor Chicago wedding, especially with the unpredictable weather.
