This camp-themed outdoor wedding on the lake is a goody!! When it comes to celebrating true love, there’s no better way to do it than with a wedding that encapsulates personal touches, breathtaking surroundings, and a celebration of nature’s beauty. Jordan + Mark hosted their family and friends at Lawrence University, right on the lake, where they brought their dream outdoor DIY wedding to life.
A maximalist wedding at Salvage One? It’s literally our dream come true. Salvage One in all of its eclectic glory paired with overgrown garden floral, a soaring cake, dramatic blacks, and deep purples: it’s a yes from us. Kate and AJ were the last of the Ziyad’s to get married. AJ’s sisters Ranna and Tanya went first and we have been SO lucky to get to work with all of these amazing siblings and their spouses!
This winter wedding at Thalia Hall was a beaut! Kt + Alex celebrated in January with an explosion of color, festive fruit-filled centerpieces, gorgeous outfits, and lots of love with their family and friends. As with all weddings in the last few years, our couples really had to roll with the punches and Kt + Alex were no different: winter in Chicago, the Omicron variant, and all of the things life throws at you in the meantime were no match for their chill vibes and good times. We just LOVE to see it! 🙂
This fall floral wedding at Schubas was full of warmth and joy. Allison and Brad were the loveliest to work with and totally trusted our recommendations throughout the planning process. Brad is a graphic designer and had a great vision for the day. It didn’t hurt that they got the most beautiful weather and fall foliage to complement the design.
My signature move is definitely wallpaper. Infamously known for wallpapering a rental property with skeletons, I constantly resist the urge to wallpaper every single room in the house. My sister- and brother-in-law just bought their first house and they have the perfect wall for a statement wallpaper. Obviously, you know I wanted in on that, so I decided to share the collection of places I browse for wallpaper that I put together for them. A note: I am a wallpaper purist. I’ve never even used removable wallpaper. One, because this isn’t something I put up myself and, two because wallpaper a dying art I like to support. It doesn’t seem like there are that many people who put wallpaper up anymore, and it looks hard as hell. So, I like to support those who keep this analog art going.
