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.
Where do we start with this one?! Stephanie + Matt booked us more than a year before their wedding at Ovation so to say we were looking forward to their big day is a huge understatement. We had so much fun working with Stephanie and Matt leading up to the day that we knew there was no way our relationship with them would end after the wedding weekend.
Micah + Peter’s Ovation Chicago wedding was so fun to plan. When we met Micah, it was love at first sight. Oh wait, that was when Peter met Micah. Ok, well, it was pretty close. We loved Micah from the minute we met her at Camp Indie Wed, but had to wait over a year for her Ovation Chicago wedding. And it was well worth the wait! Not only does this couple know how to throw a great party, but they are just the sweetest, most grateful people on the planet. It’s not often that we get thanked by the bride and groom during their speech.
Last August, we had the pleasure of working with Jane + Chris on their Ovation Chicago wedding. Ovation Chicago is one of our at one of our favorite new venues and Chris was a groomsman in one of 2013 weddings (and one of the most helpful groomsmen we’ve ever met), so we were thrilled to team up with him again and meet his beautiful bride, Jane, who we adored just as much.
