Molly + Alex | Chicago Intimate Rooftop Wedding


They finally did it.

After having to reschedule due to covid and then their original venue going bankrupt, Molly + Alex were finally able to celebrate their relationship with their family and friends. 2020 has been the year of intention. Intentionally choosing who to have at your wedding when you are only allowed a small number to comply with pandemic restrictions is not easy. Especially when the family is Irish Catholic! But Molly + Alex could not have been more chill about it all. I was seriously so impressed with how level headed the bride and groom were going into their wedding day. It might not have been plan A but it was a hell of a plan B!

Molly + Alex invited me over for cocktails a few weeks before the wedding to get to know each other and talk through all the details, that’s the kind of people they are. They are just the kindest people and that was evident by the outpouring of love and support they received on their wedding day.

Celebrating in the open air at Homestead on the Roof was an absolute treat. I fell in love with their greenery wall, hanging chandelier and coziness of the dining space. And I fell equally in love with Molly’s dress she found on an online consignment shop! Alex looked dapper in a dark green suit with elbow patches. And Molly’s bouquet was a mix of wild, eclectic and classic all at the same time. Every detail was perfect.

When I say I’ve never seen a group of people dance so aggressively to old school wedding tunes, I really mean it. The second that formal dances were over, the dance floor was rocking so hard I thought we might fall through the rooftop! We ended the night with the most gorgeous sunset we could hope for on a mild September night.
