A San Francisco-based couple hosts a romantic downtown wedding with lush floral details.

Caroline and Gene met in 2005, when both attended graduate school in Philadelphia. The couple currently reside in San Francisco, but decided to wed in Chicago because the location was convenient for both sides of the family—Caroline grew up in nearby Hinsdale, where her parents still live, while Gene has family on both coasts. They chose to have the ceremony and reception at a private club in downtown Chicago, where the bride's father has been a member for many years. "We loved its elegant interiors, central location, and amazing views of Millennium Park," says Caroline.
