This grunge-chic, styled shoot was inspired by Luella Bates. Miss Luella Bates is believed to be the first licensed women’s truck driver. Bates was the first of six female employees of the Four Wheel Drive Auto Co. During World War I, she was a test driver traveling throughout the state of Wisconsin in a Model B truck. After the war, when the majority of the women working at Four Wheel Drive were let go, she remained as a demonstrator and driver. Both an expert driver and a mechanic, Bates was more than capable of completing all maintenance on her truck.
Intimate wedding at Thalia Hall? It’s possible! In the sweeping and grand venue, Carmelle and Charlie created one of the most incredibly intimate ceremonies that we have seen. And yes, yes, yes they also had a totally raucous party afterward. Worry not!
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.
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.
Just wait until you see this concert-inspired disco wedding. Well, really, Gabby + Dennis threw a concert instead of a wedding. Which is exactly our kind of party. From multiple live music acts to an entire merch table for guests to peruse to hanging disco balls, this party was so full of thought and totally on-brand for the two of them as a couple (and us!) We just loved working with them throughout the process.
