Wedding Recap @ The Chicago Botanic Gardens
September 20, 2012

This wedding recap is from one of the weddings we planned at The Chicago Botanic Gardens. This is a great venue nestled in the heart of The Gold Coast.  It happens to be one our preferred places to work.  The team at The Newberry is great to work with!

The team that day consisted of Sally & Anthony from Liven It Up Events as the planner, Jesse with Event Creative, Misty Winter & her photography team with Misty Winter Photography, and Fig Media as the deejay.  This turned out to be a beautiful wedding even though the rain eventually came, by that point the cake was cut, the toasts were given and we were all under the tent! Take a look a just a couple shots Anthony & Sally got from the evening!

Receptions of All Sorts, Garden Weddings Part 2
August 2, 2012

Many times when you have an outdoor wedding ceremony, at least here in Chicago, the reception will be held inside.  See some of the outdoor weddings that we have done and then moved the guests, indoors, or almost indoors for the wedding reception!

 The first look at a garden wedding to the interior is from the Chicago Botanic Gardens.  The reception was held under a tent, over looking a pond with the sides of the tent left open.  Event Creative did a great job with the floral and lighting to make this garden wedding come to life!
 

 Here you will see the indoor space at The Ivy Room.  The room was transformed to look like an indoor garden with lighting by Art of Imagination and floral by Davenport Design!

Here is another look at The Great Hall Cafe Brauer with some lovely florals by Alison at Stems making this room just glow!  As the night went on, the hanging candles from the ceiling helped create the perfect ambient mood!

Watch next week as we look at some more wedding reception transitions!
