Ceremonies of All Sorts (Modern Weddings Part 4)
July 12, 2012

This is the final installment of Ceremonies of All Sorts.  This post you are going to see all modern weddings we have done.  In my mind, what constitutes a modern wedding is a wedding at a unique venue for a wedding, like The Rookery, Cafe Brauer, and The Crystal Gardens at Navy Pier.  Take a look at some memorable ceremonies. 

Here was a beautiful wedding at the Historic Rookery Building.  Down below you’ll see the fabric draping and lighting by Art of Imagination.  It was a gorgeous ceremony!

Here you’ll find us at Cafe Brauer with Scarlet Petal & Blue Plate Catering.  The wedding was gorgeous and we were able to make the couple, very, very, very happy!

The final modern wedding ceremony took place at the Crystal Gardens at Navy Pier.  Jesse from Event Creative took this one over the top, and with Stefani’s Catering it really was an amazing wedding!

Thanks for following this series!  More to come next week!




Ceremonies of All Sorts (Tradtional Weddings Part 3)
July 10, 2012

This installment of the look at Ceremonies of All Sorts focuses on Traditional Ceremonies.  You will see two shots below.  One was a Catholic Wedding that was taken in a church and another was a Jewish wedding taken at a synagogue.  Take a look!

Here you are going to see a wedding snap shot at KAM Isaiah Israel (across the street from President Obama’s home) in Hyde Park.  The Chuppah was provided by Event Creative.
Here you will see a Catholic wedding taking place at a Notre Dame Cathedral.  The floral down the aisle was provided by Fragrant Design & that is photographer, Angie Garbot in the aisle doing her job!

The final installment of Ceremonies of all Sorts will be published on Thursday, July 12th!  Watch out for it!




Ceremonies of All Sorts (Garden Weddings Part 2)
June 28, 2012

This next group of photos you are going to see are from ceremonies that have taken place outdoors.  I am always cautious of weddings outdoors in Chicago.  The heat, the rain, the snow (you never know!), can be the cause of ceremonies not happening outside.  Having a back up plan is a must and most times, it all turns out ok!  Take  a look at some of these great ceremonies I caught on my iPhone while they were happening!
 

This wedding took place at the Chicago Botanic Gardens.  There is a lily pond in front of the bride and groom and the guests are seated in the round.  There was no need for any additional floral to the garden, accept for the bouquets and boutonnieres by Event Creative.

Here we are at The Ivy Room.  In the heart of the big city, there lies a magical garden, surrounded by buildings and all you hear is a whisper of automobile traffic.  Again, in this garden, no floral was necessary except for the bouquets by Davenport Designs.

The final look is at The Lincoln Park Conservatory, where again, no floral was needed as the garden served perfectly as the back drop. The bride and bridesmaids carried bouquets and the groom and groomsmen had boutonnieres designed by Stems.




Ceremonies of All Sorts (Loft Weddings, Part 1)
June 26, 2012

One of my favorite things to do after sending the bride down the aisle is to watch the ceremony.  Now I do not always get to do that, but when I have the chance too, I just love watching!   

Over the next couple of weeks, I am going to share with you some photos of four different types of ceremonies that we have done.  Keep in mind, these are all from my iPhone (so I understand if the quality is not the best!) and from my point of view!  I have sorted them into the themes, lofty, modern, garden, and traditional.

Today, I thought we would start with the Lofty Wedding Ceremonies!  Take a look and get some ideas for your ow lofty wedding!

This wedding happened this year, at Loft on Lake.    The couple and I had a great time planning.  They wanted to keep it simple, yet elegant and with the fabric draping by Art of Imagination we were able to make that happen!

This wedding took place at the MCA Warehouse.  This space is raw (and I LOVE IT!!). It’s a warehouse in the West Loop where the MCA stores art.  The second floor can be rented for events and this is what we did here.  We added in the entrance drape, the fabric aisle runner, fabric Chuppah and fabric backdrop.  Thanks again to Art of Imagination. 

This wedding was really amazing and love the space at Salvage One.  Stems lined the aisle with florals and candles and the natural beauty of the space.  Sara, at Salvage One made sure there were extra chandeliers hanging and a beautiful stone alter stone at the front!  It was spectacular!     

Thursday I will be looking at some Garden Weddings we have produced this season!  Stay tuned!
