Janna + Cale’s elegant and intimate wedding at Thalia Hall last November was everything our wedding dreams are made of. We could tell you more, but you’re just going to have to see for yourself.
Getting ready for forever!
Janna + Cale started the day getting ready at the Ace Hotel Chicago with some of their furry friends who, of course, joined them for some first look photos too. We couldn’t love these photos more. The dogs. The flowers. The yellow shoes. The NASA socks. What’s not to love?
Vintage glam and join a parade
From there, Janna + Cale headed over to Thalia Hall to meet up with friends for photos and fun outside and in. They took full advantage of the beautiful day to get some great photos (seriously, Alex Davis Photography hit it out of the park) and even got caught up in a spontaneous Dia De Los Muertos parade that just happened to be going by. Perfection? Yep.
Details, detailed, to perfection
While they were taking photos and enjoying a minute of relaxing before the big event (we highly recommend doing this!), we were busy putting all of the finishing touches on the ceremony set-up. Field & Florist suspended greenery above the space making it even more romantic and intimate than usual.
An intimate ceremony in the round
With everything set, we dimmed the lights for Janna + Cale’s intimate wedding ceremony in the round. We loved that they kept the ceremony small and just focused on what’s important – love. We love helping our couples plan the day that’s exactly right for them.
Feasting with friends
Following the ceremony, Janna + Cale headed upstairs and joined the rest of their guests for cocktails while we transformed the main floor from an intimate ceremony to a candlelit dinner. The guest count may have gone way up, but the event was still romantic and intimate under the glow of string lights and candles lining the tables.
Of course, it didn’t stay like that all night! After dinner, the Chicago Catz brought the energy and packed the dance floor until the wee hours of the night. A band on that stage makes for some serious ambiance.
