On January 30th 2010, Chicago will be the location for a unique wedding event. The event, called Indie Wed, will be the first of its kind in Chicago, bringing together local vendors with a twist. Indie Wed will cater to unconventional couples who are taking a more modern, edgy, or eco-friendly approach to their special day as well as the more conservative couples who simply want to spice things up a bit. The event will highlight the work of local independent designers specializing in various wedding related fields including stationery, cakes & pastries, fashion, catering, floral design and photography.
Indie Wed will take place on Saturday, January 30th, 2010 from 11am-5pm at the Showroom at the Ravenswood Billboard Factory. 4025 N. Ravenswood Ave, Chicago Illinois.
Indie Wed is organized by the fine folks at Paper Stories, a Chicago area letterpress studio, and many wonderful volunteers.
Paper Stories is a local print shop that focuses on creating innovative and stylish paper goods that are also environmentally responsible. They also believe that it is important to be socially responsible and regularly donate a portion of their profits in the form of micro-loans to entrepreneurs in developing nations.
