It was a true pleasure to work with Liz and Sean! We met one year before the big day and jump started the planning right away. It was no surprise that they selected the beautiful Chicago Botanic Garden for their ceremony and reception. Liz and Sean spent many dates at the garden prior to getting engaged so as soon as Sean popped the question – they had no doubt where they wanted this special occasion to be!
Despite the downpours through out the wedding day, there was so much love and excitement. To compliment the gardens, we chose a bright and airy color scheme of coral, orange, white, and navy blue which were present everywhere from the paper items to the floral.
The ceremony took place in McGinley Pavillion overlooking the beautiful water and landscape. The look on Sean’s face as Elizabeth walked down the aisle was priceless and a moment I will never forget! After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in the English Walled Garden while we transitioned the Pavillion from ceremony to dinner.
Place cards were displayed on a bed of floral and the guest tables were adorned with navy blue linens, coral napkins, and bright peonies, hydrangea, stock, and roses – the perfect setting for a summer wedding!
Guests enjoyed a fabulous meal while watching the sunset before Connexion Band had everyone up and dancing the night away. It was a perfect day for Liz and Sean and we wish them many, many years of love & happiness!
