This Honky Tonk BBQ Secret Garden Wedding has to be one of my favorites from July 2015. (I know, I know, I’m pretty backed up on blogging but I’m catching up!) Laura and Zach are two of the sweetest people I have ever met. They held their wedding at the rustic Pilsen venue “The Secret Garden.” It truly is a secret. The secret garden is the former courtyard and convent of St. Procopius Parish, founded in 1875. Today it is owned by Honky Tonk BBQ, a restaurant and music venue across the street. It’s by far one of my favorite wedding venues in Chicago not only because its history but how unique it is to everything else around it. Not to mention, Honky Tonk caters it and I’m a sucker for good BBQ. But anyways, this post isn’t about the venue, though I could probably write one entirely about it, but it’s about Laura and Zach, their beautiful wedding day, complete with a Jewish ceremony, a butterfly release of the butterflies Laura’s Mother raised for the big day, beer in a clawfoot tub and a little bit of rain and shine. I’ll let the pictures tell the story about how gorgeous their day truly was.
