Liz + Matt’s fairy tale wedding at Germania Place last fall was definitely one of the most romantic affairs of the season! Laura was on board to coordinate this one and had a blast working with this sweet couple and one of the most organized brides we’ve ever met!
Liz and her bridesmaids got ready at her apartment, which she spruced up for the big day with some adorable details to make it super special. We love when people want to get ready at home, what a comforting, fun environment for the morning of your wedding and GREAT memory to have in your house!
When Liz first moved to Chicago, she lived at the Belden Stratford, so this was the perfect place for her first look photos with Matt. Liz’s dad also couldn’t wait to see her all dressed up for the big day, so Liz did a mini first look session with him too, which is just too cute! After that, Liz + Matt headed out with their wedding party for photos against the beautiful and iconic background of Lincoln Park.
Liz is a project manager and she project managed the heck out of her wedding! Every little detail was perfect and she had the day planned out perfectly. Liz and her mom put together all of the wedding details themselves and they could not be more beautiful and personal. For their guest book, friends and family wrote notes on fabric squares that will be made into a quilt to keep forever. In keeping with the romantic overload of this gorgeous day, dramatic floral arrangements and candelabras adorned purple linens and provided wine glass favors for all of their guests.
Liz and her wedding party walked down the aisle to Christina Perri’s song, A Thousand Years. Liz entered right as the song hit its crescendo and the entire room was in tears.
The couple ended the night on the dance floor – twirling away the evening into their very own happily ever after.
