Wedding Recap @ A New Leaf
October 4, 2012

One of my favorite wedding venues in Chicago is A New Leaf.  Those longing for a wedding there in 2013, keep watching.  We have our fingers crossed they they will start booking soon!

This wedding just happened to be one that we did there this year.  It was so great to work with Briana there, along with Rachel from J and L Catering, reception music by Toast & Jam Deejays and ceremony music by Dolce Strings.  There were some many family friends that also became involved with the wedding as the bride’s family acted as make-up and hair artists and uncle officiated the wedding!  It was really a great day and the snap shots I got were pretty AMAZING!  Take a look and how fabulous the wedding was!

The Chuppah for this wedding was STUNNING!

We used the Storefront for the dinner as well as the mezzanine!

The garden was a perfect place for cocktails!

This was the centerpiece for the buffet & bar.  Pretty amazing!




Romantic Weddings in Chicago We Have Planned
May 24, 2012

Another style of wedding that we know how to plan well is one that is considered by some, more of a Romantic style.  This is where there are lush florals, dim, soft lights, elegant touches on the table arrangements and candle light everywhere!  Take a look at some of the weddings we have done that match that style.

 This was a great wedding we had last fall at Harold Washington LibraryBlue Plate was the caterer and was able to delivery a great 3 course meal The bride’s family flower shop provided the flower arrangements and plenty of candles ALL over the room! If I am not mistaken, it takes about 350 candles to go around all of the ledges in the library!

Another wedding we had at A New Leaf where although the space is modern, the low lighting and candles throughout the space make it so romantic.  J&L Catering did a great job with the menu for the one too!

Where else do you get a more romantic feel than the Red Lacquer Room at the Palmer House Hilton?  The room is stunning to begin with.  Fragrant Design brought the bride’s vision of floating snow clouds to life with her beautiful arrangements!

 This was another winter romantic wedding we had this year at the Quadrangle Club on the University of Chicago’s Campus and K.La Designs did a fantastic job creating a winter wonderland!

 Finally, this wedding at Cafe Brauer this year was really phenomenal!  Blue Plate Catering did a great job with the menu and Scarlet Petal brought the bride’s vision of getting married in her mother’s back yard to the Great Hall!
