Wedding Recap – Summer Weddings Part 2
December 13, 2012

Last week we posted four pictures from summer weddings that we have done in the past. Since summer in Chicago is beautiful, it is a popular time for weddings. We made this a two-part series so that you could see all the different types of weddings that can happen with the right venue! We hope these pictures give you inspiration as you plan the wedding of your dreams this summer!

Wedding Recap @ The Crystal Gardens
September 27, 2012

One of the weddings we had this year was custom built for this couple.  We had everything from the lamp & candelabra centerpieces made to the linens.   Take a look at how Stefani’s Catering, Jesse with Event Creative, Maggie Speaks, Sarah & Ryan with Miller + Miller Photography and everyone else that made this wedding possible! 

This was also the last wedding I worked with my friend and colleague Sheree Figler with Tablescapes.  Sheree was a gift to the Chicago Wedding Industry, a talented designer, and a perfectionist.  I miss her and am thankful we had the opportunity to go out with a bang.  She had the linens custom made for this wedding because she knew it was necessary!




Receptions of all Sorts, Modern Weddings Part 4
August 9, 2012

In our final recap of wedding receptions of all sorts, we are looking at some modern weddings!  Take a look at some of our favorites!

This first wedding, you can see was at The Rookery.  This was an intimate wedding, with Art of Imagination & Flora who both made this wedding show it’s modern, elegant edge!

This next week took place at Cafe Brauer.  (We work at Brauer a ton and love to share our work there!)  With the help of Scarlet Petal and Blue Plate Catering, this indoor space became the bride’s dream of having an elegant, back yard wedding!

Finally, one of our weddings that has been a huge hit on Facebook & Twitter took place at the Crystal Gardens at Navy Pier.  With the help of Stefani’s Catering creating a customized menu, Event Creative customizing all of the decor pieces, Maggie Speaks keeping the party going all night and Miller + Miller Photography capturing the wedding, it was an affair to remember!




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!
