Custom Ceremony in Chicago

The couple personalized every detail of their ceremony. They selected songs by Bon Iver, their favorite indie folk band, for the band to arrange into instrumental renditions. “Most of our guests probably didn’t even notice, but it made it special for us,” confesses the groom. They further customized the proceedings by having the bride’s brother-in-law officiate, asking friends and family to recite song lyrics, and exchanging personalized vows.
