Anna & Jesse in Watervliet, MI

With help from talented friends and family, one couple hosts a relaxed celebration filled with charming homespun details.

Anna and Jesse, both Chicago natives, first met in high school in 1996, but didn't start dating till 10 years later, when Anna returned to the city after college and bumped into Jesse on the train. For their wedding, they wanted a venue that was beautiful but not overly ornate, and loved the elegant simplicity of the Millcreek Barns. Anna wore a J.Crew dress and Jesse sported a gray Italian suit from Suits 20/20.
