Wedding Planning RECAP @ The University Club

This week we are looking back at one of the weddings he had at The University Club.  We were excited to be back at The Club and working with their fabulous team.  There are a few things to note about this wedding.  The first, it took place on Valentine’s Day, one of the most romantic days of the year!  The second, was being February 14th in Chicago, it actually was the first, coldest day of the year, so being so smart, this couple decided to have everything take place inside from getting ready onsite, to photos, to ceremony, and reception!

When looking back at how the look came together, Juliet Tan and her team at Juliet Tan Floral Designs did an incredible job pulling the couple’s vision to life.  They wanted a sophisticated, whimsical, winter wedding.  I think the team did a great job and making that happen!

We first look at the ceremony.  With the fire place as the back drop, by adding candles inside the fireplace and all around it created this incredible warmth space for the lovely couple to be married.  Accentuating the aisle with the tall centerpieces and candles was just simply romantic with a coordinating aisle runner.  To tie it all off, we brought in gold chivari (or versaille) chairs and the aisle was tied with a crystal garland!  Big thanks to Marcos and his team for pin spotting the florals down the aisle to help accentuate and illuminate them for our happy couple!

One of the most magical parts of the wedding was the special head table for the couple and their wedding party.  With a long table, seating all the way around, the design was just incredible on how this came to life!

The gold wedding cake also provided a magnificent finishing touch to pull this entire design together!
