Wedding Planning RECAP @ The Crystal Gardens

Today, we are looking back at a whimsical wedding we had at The Crystal Gardens at Navy Pier.  What was great about this wedding was the couple wanted something much more modern for their wedding, but wanted a natural(ish) looking setting.  The Crystal Gardens was just the place for them and teaming with Event Creative, made it the perfect balance of natural and modern!

For the ceremony, they were married under the daylight, with a wooden branch chandelier that had many hanging candles and orchids under them.  Down the double wide aisle, there were gorgeous pink florals and fun lucite elements that created the perfect walk way for couple to come down the aisle!

Once we moved back into the main room for dinner, the entire garden was trasnformed.  Using a combination of different types of centerpieces, we saw natural elements, with a modern twist, some florals, lucite and tons of candlelight and lighting that made this setting perfect for our couple!

One of our favorite parts to this wedding was the 5′ tall wedding cake created by Amy Beck Cake Design.  Set on a beautiful table and a white covered dance floor was the most elegant finishing touch to the room!
