A vintage glam backyard wedding bash you say? Well, if you know anything about us at this point you know we’re moving mountains to make this happen. Victoria + Sam’s original event was stymied because of Covid, but they took it all in stride and literally moved the whole thing from what was to be a museum wedding to this beautiful slice of Illinois just a few months before the big day. Luckily, we were here to help make that happen.
Erin + Alejandro’s modern wedding at Chicago Illuminating Company was classic, chic, and all of the best things for the loveliest couple. With tons of personal touches like a mariachi band during cocktail hour, and glow sticks for the end-of-the-night dance party (they like to party!) the event was well-thought-out from start to finish and the end result was truly beautiful.
Jake and Ellen are the coolest and their Ovation Chicago offbeat wedding was perfect. They love music and The Big Lebowski and have impeccable style. We love that for us because we got to work with them taking all of their favorite things and making them into the most FUN day. Laura coordinated this one and I’ll admit, when I (Elizabeth) stopped by, the energy was palpable and I got some goosebumps. It was one of the first weddings in the lifecycle of Covid where people were able to be vaxxinated and gather again, and it felt like “holy crap” we can party again. It was wonderful and these two and their energy made it so.
Piper and Calvin’s classic Shedd Aquarium wedding will be one we always remember. Scheduled for March of 2021 it was our first wedding back after a very long pandemic and while they had originally planned to host 300 people, they took it totally in stride when restrictions allowed them to only host 50 people. It honestly made the day so intimate and special as they had the run of one of Chicago’s most fabulous institutions all to themselves.
Well we couldn’t really be more obsessed with this jewel-toned warehouse wedding at Rockwell on the River. This wedding, this couple, and their families. It was one of those weddings that was just simply magic. Melia + John couldn’t have been nicer clients to have, literally never fretted about Covid pushing their wedding date back, and generally were just SUCH a joy to be around. Okay, okay, it didn’t hurt that their wedding is fit for a magazine.
