The venue we chose to look at this week is one located in the heart of River North in Chicago. The Ivy Room is a beautiful room surrounded by nature in the Medinah Tree Studios. No matter what style a person has, this space can transform into something amazing and beautiful.

Take a look below at some of the different ways The Ivy Room has been crafted and produced by Liven It Up Events.

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, Traditional Weddings Part 3
August 7, 2012

In this post, we are looking back at wedding receptions where the ceremonies were in religious institutions.  One was at KAM Isreal Temple in Hyde Park where the reception followed at Cafe Brauer.  The other wedding took place in a church and the reception was to follow at The Palmer House Hilton.  Take a look!

Here you will find the reception that took place at Cafe Brauer.  We were delighted that a few weeks before the wedding, not only was I named Social Event Planner of the Year by Biz Bash, but Limelight Catering was voted Caterer of the year, Event Creative won all sorts of Biz Bash Awards and Maggie Speaks kept the night going all night long.  Fig Media captured the entire wedding on film and because of the talent of photographer Olivia Leigh, we were published in Martha Stewart Weddings!  This was an amazing team of vendors.

Here, you can see our holiday wedding of the year at The Palmer House Hilton!  It was gorgeous and we were so honored to work with Nadine of Fragrant Design who made the bride’s dream come true!  It was also amazing when the bride and groom walked in the room and the bride turned around to all of us and said, “Oh my god, is this really my wedding?”  And we were all delighted to say, “YES!”

Watch Thursday for the final recap of Wedding Receptions of all Sorts!
