Hannah and Patrick: Galleria Marchetti

Hannah and Patrick have been friends of mine since college, and I was so honored to be a part of their big day! They are such a fun-loving couple and were all smiles and laughs, despite the wind and rain that day.

The bridal party got ready at the Conrad Chicago in matching floral robes. When the beautiful bride stepped into her Pronovias wedding dress, the bridesmaids snapped photos to capture the special moment. Hannah completed her stunning look with a vintage purse and a BHLDN belt. Pistil & Vine provided the floral, which completed the girls’ looks with classic bouquets of ivory, peach and a touch of green.

The ceremony took place at Saint Clement Church, nestled right in the heart of Lincoln Park. After the ceremony, guests celebrated the newlyweds with ribbon wands under umbrellas before the bridal party took off to take pictures around the city.

Hannah and Patrick got engaged on Lincoln Park Zoo’s Kissing Bridge, so coming back to this area was a must on their wedding day!

Guests gathered at Galleria Marchetti for the reception, under the newly renovated tent. Pistil & Vine carried the day’s soft, romantic look through with lanterns, mercury glass and a hint of blush for each table’s centerpiece.

Childhood photos of the bride and groom accompanied the table numbers.

The wedding cake and cupcakes were courtesy of Hannah and Patrick’s close family friend. The desserts didn’t stop there though. The couple incorporated their alma mater into the festivities with an Indiana University sweets table filled with red and white candy for guest’s to take home with them at the end of the evening.

The Chicago Botanic Garden: Daisy and Bing

I met Daisy and Bing ten months before their wedding. I instantly connected with their vision for their wedding day and we jump started the planning right away. Daisy and Bing knew they wanted a romantic garden style wedding so I knew the Chicago Botanic Garden would be our first stop during our venue visits.

Quickly after visiting the Chicago Botanic Garden, they knew it was the perfect venue. We decided to have the ceremony in the beautiful Rose Terrace, the cocktail hour in English Walled Garden, and the reception in McGinley Pavillion.

Daisy and Bing are the sweetest couple and we quickly became friends through out the planning process. Their guests were coming in from all over the world so it was very important that the evening was perfect and enjoyed by all – and it sure was!

To keep with their romantic garden theme, we chose a color scheme of gold, whites, and soft blush. The flowers consisted of romantic garden roses and lots of peonies – Daisy’s favorite flower. The very talented Jessica Griffin with HMR Designs designed the decor to perfection!
