Olga and Brad: The Langham Hotel

Olga and Brad tied the knot in Barbados in May, but they brought the celebration back to the Windy City due to their Chicago roots. One week after their wedding ceremony, they held a fabulous reception, and we had the honor of planning this special occasion! The reception took place Memorial Day weekend at the Langham Hotel in Chicago.

Guests were greeted at the cocktail hour with delicious hors d’oeuvres, including sushi rolls and tomato soup with mini grilled cheese, and live music performed by Matt with Okyne Media.  Kehoe Designs created quite the first impression on the place card table with a collection of tall vessels in various sizes with submerged florals and vibrant magenta and purple hues. After mingling, guests made their way into Devonshire Ballroom to view a video of Olga and Brad’s Barbados ceremony before enjoying dinner and dancing.

The ballroom was breathtaking! Half of the guest tables featured high tall glass vibrant floral arrangements accented with candlelight that provided a warm glow throughout the room. The other half of the tables had low lush arrangements filled with greenery and stylized purple and magenta floral, supplemented by romantic candlelight.

Olga and Brad sat at a sweetheart table for two, which was adorned with a beautiful floral centerpiece in colors that coordinated with the guest tables. We enhanced the romantic and elegant setting with soft uplighting, pin spots, and a soft pool of texture lighting on the dance floor.

Amy and Blake: Chicago Botanic Garden

Amy and I became fast friends through the planning process. She would glow with excitement at each planning meeting and had a clear vision of what she envisioned for her and Blake’s summer wedding. Amy and Blake picked one of our favorite venues, the Chicago Botanic Garden, for their reception and the historic Old St. Patrick’s Church for their ceremony. We had a blast bringing Amy and Blake’s vision to life throughout the year of planning!

There was so much excitement in Amy’s suite when we arrived on the wedding day. Amy looked stunning in her silk taffeta Amsale dress with french lace detail. Amy carried a gorgeous lush all-white bouquet full of peonies, ranunculus, and hand-wired gardenia blooms. The bridesmaids wore long slate-blue dresses and each carried a different bouquet to create an ombre effect.

Amy and Blake had a beautiful ceremony at Old St. Patrick’s Church. After saying “I Do,” they hopped in a classic, vintage white car and made their way to Chicago Botanic Garden to celebrate.
HMR Designs transformed the McGinley Pavilion at the Chicago Botanic Garden into a gorgeous garden elegant affair. We incorporated both round and rectangular tables topped with a mix of blush and taupe linens. The round tables hosted a collection of myrtle topiary, pillar candles, and mono-botanic blooms of coral charm and blush peonies, ivory roses and blush spray roses and salmon ranunculus. Mercury glass and clear votive candles completed the design.

A lush garland of lemon leaf foliage ran down the center of each rectangular table, accented with coral and blush peonies, ivory and peach spray roses, and blush roses. A beautiful greenery garland connected Amy and Blake’s chairs at the head table. Botanical menu cards were tucked in each napkin topped with a sprig of fresh lavender.

Guest enjoyed a fabulous meal by Culinary Landscapes and delicious wedding cake featuring passionfruit, red velvet, and devil’s food with chocolate ganache before dancing the night away to the sounds of Gold Coast All Stars.

A sparkler exit concluded the evening, and it was a perfect wedding day for Amy and Blake!

Colleen and Matt requested wedding portraits from their married guests ahead of the big day, which we placed all around the cocktail-filled elevator that carried guests up to the reception space. A perfect personal touch to kick off the evening!

Event Creative designed the room to perfection. The escort cards were displayed on a wooden farm table with a cafe light backdrop, and chic lounge groupings were placed around the cocktail hour space – a stunning first impression!

Guests were greeted with champagne upon arrival and Blue Plate Catering passed a variety of fantastic hors d’oeuvres including buttermilk waffles with fried chicken, braised yucatan pork mini tacos, and mac and cheese cups.

Event Creative designed three different centerpieces for the guest tables. One featured beautiful shades of pale pink and white floral, a collection of milk glass, mercury vases, and candlelight. Some tables had high, clear vases overflowing with Hawaiian dendrobium orchids, and the third centerpiece design had a birch square box overflowing with pale pink floral accented with a trio of mercury candle risers. With white string cafe lights strung over the dance floor and crystal chandeliers hung above the head table, the brilliant tones of blush pink were lit up through the entire space.

We absolutely love this winter wedding! Blythe and Daniel selected the stunning Pavillion at Orchard Ridge Farms for their winter nuptials. The Pavillion sits on a charming 130-acre private estate exuding rustic elegance. It features a captivating view of the countryside, sliding glass door exteriors, and a 40 foot masonry fireplace.

Blythe and her bridesmaids began hair and make up bright and early in the most adorable farm house near the Pavillion. Blythe presented her bridesmaids with a gorgeous fur shawl and Daniel selected a unique craft beer for each one of his groomsmen. As it was just about time for Blythe and Daniel’s first look, Blythe stepped into her perfect blush wedding gown with lace detailing on the top and bottom accented with a crystal belt. To top off this already stunning look, she wore a white fur shawl and Badgley Mishka shoes for her “something blue”. Each bridesmaid selected a long dress full of sequins and sparkle!

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.

Hannah and Ryan: The Langham Hotel

I had so much fun planning this spectacular wedding day with Hannah and Ryan. They selected the timeless, sophisticated Langham Hotel located right downtown Chicago. The ballroom is so romantic with floor to ceiling windows, sparkling chandeliers, and gorgeous skyline views. It was the perfect location for this elegant affair!

There was so much excitement and energy when I entered Hannah’s hotel room the morning of the wedding. She couldn’t stop smiling and was so happy to be surrounded by her closest friends and family while getting ready to say “I do”!

As the bridal party went off to take photos around the city, we prepared for guest arrival! The ceremony space incorporated tons of white from the aisle to the sheer fabric Chuppah and all of the candles surrounding. Since we were transforming the same ballroom for the reception, we wanted to create an entirely different feel for the dinner and dancing portion of the evening.

As guests made their way outside of the ballroom for cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and bluegrass performed live by Gold Coast All Stars, we began transforming the ballroom. We brought in long rectangle farm tables for a touch of rustic elegance for the head table. The guest tables surrounding were covered in soft fawn textured linens. Tabletops were adorned with garden flowers consisting of dahlias, stock, kale, and lavender in colors of yellow, red, purple, pinks, and greens to create the happy and bright atmosphere that Hannah and Ryan hoped for. In addition to the city lights, the room was covered in candlelight and up-lit in amber and we surrounded the band stage in mirrored planter boxes topped with pillar candles and mercury glass hurricanes.

After the ceremony, guests made their way to the Drawing Room in the Woman’s Athletic Club for champagne, passed St. Germain cocktails, and hors d’oeuvres while listening to New York musician, Seth Kessel, perform pre-1950’s American music. We displayed the escort cards on beautiful heirloom silver trays surrounded by a tall, dramatic floral arrangement which was a stunning first impression!

The ballroom also replicated the art deco, elegant, and dramatic theme. Mirrored table tops, mercury glass votives, silver beaded charger plates, and tall arrangements full of sprouting white dendrobium orchids adorned all of the guest tables. We topped each place setting with a foil engraved menu card personalized with each guests name.

The Z Orchestra kicked off the evening with a dance set before guests took their seats for the three-course dinner that ended with wedding cake and a custom bag full of fresh mini donuts.

Lindsay & Kyle: The Germania Place

I had so much fun working with Lindsay and Kyle. The couple met in Seville, Spain while studying abroad in 2008 and have been together ever since! Kyle popped the question over a picnic near Belmont Harbor and the planning began soon afterwards. They selected the beautiful Germania Place for both their ceremony and reception.

It was a gorgeous summer day without a cloud in the sky. The girls got ready in the Michael Jordan Suite at the PUBLIC Hotel – one of our favorite getting ready spots in the city! Lindsay and Kyle had their first look on the outdoor terrace of the suite before they departed for photos around the city with their bridal party.
