I had the pleasure of meeting Halsey and Doug one year before their winter wedding. I immediately connected with their style and vision for the wedding day. Halsey and Doug live in New York so all of the plans came together with just a few trips to Chicago. Halsey and Doug met in college and dated for 10 years before Doug popped the question!
Halsey grew up in Chicago and her family have been members of the Woman’s Athletic Club for many years so it was the perfect location for both their ceremony and reception. We embraced the upcoming holiday season through all aspects of the wedding plans, including the red and green color scheme, the custom laurel wreath accented on all paper items, and the festive ornament favors.
We transformed the club’s Drawing Room to a warm winter ceremony setting with boxwood garlands, mahogany chairs, and pillar candles filled with rose petals and winter berries. It was the perfect romantic setting for Halsey and Doug to say ” I do”. As guests entered the ballroom for dinner and dancing, they were greeted with a glass of sparkling rose and enjoyed tunes by Greenlight Band. Guests enjoyed a fabulous meal by the Woman’s Athletic Club before dancing and celebrating the night away!
We had so much fun working with Halsey and Doug and wish them many years of love and happiness!
