From the minute we started working with Tory + Brendan, we just loved working with them to plan their beautiful backyard wedding. Their gorgeous tented reception at Tory’s sister’s house in Winnetka was filled with all the best details – delightful flowers, s’mores around a fire pit, and a folk band that kept the crowd on the dance floor all night.
If you can’t tell, we really love a good camp wedding. From Camp Indie Wed to weddings at Camp Wandawega (Deanna + Paul’s, Elena + Ken’s, Rachel + Mike’s and Lindsey + Bobby’s to name just a few…), we just love anything that has to do with camping. So, when Laura’s little one turned one, she just couldn’t resist inviting guests to join them at Camp Henry!
So you got engaged over the holidays and have no idea how to begin planning? Today, we’re turning the reigns over to our amazing intern Tara to help you get started. Tara worked with us this fall and saw everything from intimate backyard weddings to six-course extravaganzas. She learned a thing or two about weddings and she has some wedding planning advice for the newly engaged:
Meg + Kevin’s vintage wedding dream was a reality at Ovation Chicago. Effortlessly cool is the best way to describe the two of them and their vibe for the day. Even though a TON of work went into this one, in the end, the event just felt effortless in the best possible way.
Lindsey + Jeff’s vintage Chicago wedding at Thalia Hall came together beautifully. It’s hard to believe they got married in January – in Chicago – when you look at their pictures. They look so relaxed and happy, you would think they were hanging out in a tropical paradise. But no, they braved the cold and had such a cool wedding at Thalia Hall, one of our all time fave venues!
