Tracy + Gary's Offbeat Vegan Wedding

“You gave me the best mixtape I have.’”  That’s just a line from one of my favorite tunes  ”Mixtape” by artist Butch Walker, and it could also be the tagline for Tracy and Gary’s wedding.  A super sweet tale of modern love that began online via a music swapping community; where mixtapes led to friendship, roadtrips, and finally to a totally rad, handmade event captured by OKRFOTO.

Held at Tracy + Gary’s favorite restaurant, Revolution Brewing in Chicago, vegan treats like mini vegan hot dogs, specialty vegan donuts, and of course, great beer were delish treats for guests.  Friends and family all pitched in to create an easy going, elegant vibe filled with blush, purple and green florals arranged by Tracy’s mom, cupcake liner roses, chalkboard signs, the prettiest pinwheel alter I’ve ever seen, and an awesomely lit marquee sign!
