Stan Mansion Summer Wedding

Lindsay and Jay’s classy wedding took place on a gorgeous summer evening in Chicago. Their ceremony and reception at the Stan Mansion was an elegant fairy tale full of fresh flowers, stylish gold accents, and plenty of candle light. Their floral decor was refined, and featured quintessential wedding flowers like ranunculus and roses.

Lindsay held a bouquet of white roses, blush garden roses, spray roses and ranunculus. Her bridesmaids carried petite versions of the bridal bouquet. Jay and his groomsmen wore simple blush ranunculus boutonnieres, and female family members wore cheery corsages of pink spray roses on a gold band.

The ceremony aisle was lined with dozens of ivory pillar candles which were later moved to the tabletops to create warm lighting for the reception dinner. Small floral arrangements in gold bud vases accented the ivory pillar candles on the round tables while the farm style tables were decorated with tall arrangements in gold vases that mirrored the style of Lindsay’s bouquet.

Congratulations to Lindsay and Jay and thank you to Sarah Crost Photography for capturing such 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!
