Winter Wedding Delight

While Chicago often only has two seasons (Festivals & Frigid), Winter Weddings are becoming more and more popular.  With the mild winter we have had this year, it was pleasant to have beautiful white floral and seemingly frosted succulents decorate Revolution Brewing's Tap Room.  Lauren & Jordan were wed beneath their hand made Chuppah with barrels donning white spray roses, dahlias, and roses with  olive tree foliage and wintery gray dusty milller. 

Lauren carried a textured bouquet of succulents, anemone, brunia, and garden roses while Jordan sported a succulent and ranunculus boutonniere. Garlands of olive tree branches with pops of white floral lined the dinner tables, set off by the soft glow of mercury glass votive candles.  Romantic and subtle, soft and warm just like the newly weds' love. 

Special Thank You to Cage & Aquarium Photography for capturing (and sharing) these beautiful photos!  

Whimsical Wildflower Wedding

It was the first day of Summer when Claudia and Ryan said "I do".  Their energized love matched perfectly with wild flowers in bold colors of periwinkle blues, oranges, and yellows. Claudia's green gown was a stunning accent to the whimsical wonderland created at Bridgeport Art Center.  

Vows were exchanged under a rustic birch Chuppah decorated with vintage lace fabric and colorful blooms.  They dinned and danced beneath cafe lights and a unique floating floral piece above the sweetheart table.  Guest's tables were set with vessels of seasonal floral  including veronica, ranunculus, stock, queen anne's lace, roses and more.  The vases sat atop vintage trays of silver and brass and were surrounded by mercury glass votives.  

All these beautiful details were captured by Allison Williams photography.  A special thank you to Carlene with Naturally Yours Events for your amazing coordination skills and to Bridgeport Art Center for hosting us in such a wonderful space. Congrats Claudia & Ryan!
