Steven is out of town for work, so we'll have to celebrate when he gets home, but 7 years ago today our families and friends gathered at St James for our wedding.
And then went a few blocks away to the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago for the reception. (when we got engaged, Steven and I thought we'd have 30 people at our wedding. My parents thought we'd have 200. My parents were right.)
They had just installed Maurizio Cattelan's dinosaur sized cat skeleton,
and toasts given under his watchful eye socket.
Dinner was eaten on tables full of tulips, roses, orchids and peonies.
The cake was covered with flowers, both real and frosted. (and it was really good, and not just because it was the only thing I ate all night.)
The candy favors were wrapped up like firecrackers,
and my bouquet was made of individual flower petals put together to look like one giant flower.
And there was dancing. lots and lots of dancing.
