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.

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 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.

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”!

Hannah and Ryan did a first look right outside of the hotel along the Chicago River. One of my favorite moments of a wedding day! Ryan lit up when he saw his beautiful bride looking stunning dressed in white. The bridesmaids each wore a unique and elegant black long dress and carried gorgeous pops of color in their wildflower bouquets.

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.

The ceremony was perfect and as you can see from the photos, the smiles never stopped!

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.

Samantha and Tommy Part 3: Woman’s Athletic Club of Chicago

Sam and Tommy selected the Woman’s Athletic Club of Chicago for their wedding reception. They loved the history behind the club, the art deco feel and, of course, the incredible chandeliers in the ballroom! We had so much fun planning for the big day that was an incredible grand finale after a few days of celebrating.

Chicago Womens Athletic Club JDetailed Events_0690

A second ceremony took place at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral. It was a beautiful ceremony that included several of Tommy’s Greek family traditions.

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.

Samantha and Tommy Part 2: Welcome Fiesta at Chez

Chicago Chez Event JDetailed Events_0653

Sam and Tommy got engaged in Mexico, so it was only appropriate to throw an authentic Mexican fiesta for their welcome event!

Chez, a venue located in downtown Chicago, was the perfect location to host this occasion. Its crisp, clean, and white interior gave us the freedom to be creative and transform the space into a fiesta overflowing with bright colors and authentic decor. Kehoe Designs incorporated decor details that came through in every inch of the space, from the custom-made piñatas to the large palmetto leaves with custom Mexican art graffiti. Vibrant hues of hot pink and orange popped amongst the white lacquer dining tables and stylish all-white lounge groupings.

Authentic Mexican cuisine was very important to Sam and Tommy. Blue Plate Catering delivered just that. As guests entered the space, they were greeted with a variety of signature cocktails, including a cucumber margarita, a paloma, and a frozen tamarind margarita. With a delicious cocktail in hand, guests enjoyed mini fish tacos and Maine lobster ceviche skewers.

A mariachi band livened up the party with classic Mexican tunes before it was time to eat.

Samantha and Tommy Part 1: Driehaus Museum Welcome Dinner

 

Nine months before she said “I do,” Sam and I met in Chicago. We instantly hit it off and began talking ideas for a three-day wedding celebration right away. Sam is one of the most creative brides I have ever worked with. I absolutely loved her vision and style. She thoroughly thought through every detail of the wedding weekend. It was incredibly special to make her dreams a reality and see all of them come to life.

Chicago Driehaus Museum Event JDetailed Events_0644

Sam and Tommy met in New York City, got engaged in Mexico, and moved to London during the engagement. Sam grew up in Chicago and knew the Windy City was the perfect location for her and Tommy’s nuptials. We planned the three-day wedding extravaganza thanks to technology and a few visits to Chicago.

With three days of jaw-dropping events, there’s so much to share. First, we’ll start with an elaborate, black-tie, sit-down dinner for their dearest friends and family that kicked off the wedding weekend. The evening began with Sam and Tommy saying their vows for the first time in front of this intimate group of people at St. James Chapel in downtown Chicago. Sam looked stunning in her gown that she designed alongside Reem Acra.

After the ceremony, bagpipers lead the group down the street to the beautiful and historical Driehaus Museum. Guests enjoyed passed Champagne, cocktails, and hors d’oeuvres on the first level of the museum before the private guided tours began.

Guests were then directed to an incredible place card display upstairs that replicated the look of the ballroom with everyone’s name beautifully written in their designated spot– a very special touch and now keepsake for the bride and groom! The setting of the ballroom was so romantic. Floral, with garden roses, peonies, thistles, succulents, berries, and parrot tulips in a palette of pinks, red, burgundy, apricot, blue, and green, winded all the way down the long King’s Table set in the center of the room. Bunches of fruit such as red and burgundy grapes, pomegranates, and pears were dripping out of the vessels to coordinate with the elegant Gilded Age theme. Gold-rimmed glassware, royal derby china, and personalized menus introducing the 10-course tasting menu with wine pairings completed each place setting. It was the perfect, intimate way to celebrate the couple and kick off the rest of the events.

Katie and I have been best friends since our freshman year of college, so being a part of her and Will’s wedding could not be more meaningful to me. Katie and Will selected St. Clement Church in Chicago for their ceremony and the beautiful Saddle and Cycle Club for their reception.

Chicago Wedding Saddle and Cycle Club_0557

The wedding day was perfect and full of so much love. The day began with a special delivery from the groom to his bride – a painting that he created himself. Katie took a break from getting ready to take it all in. She looked absolutely stunning in her Oscar de la Renta dress. The bridal party wore navy and carried gorgeous hot pink peony bouquets, wrapped in navy and white-striped ribbon.

Museum of Contemporary Art: Pooja and Chris

Every time I met with Pooja and Chris leading up to their big day on September 28th, it was so clear how in love they were which made me all the more excited to be a part of their special day.

They’re both big fans of modern art, so the Museum of Contemporary Art was the ideal setting for both their ceremony and reception. To keep with the theme of modern art, we stuck to linear elements with the table settings. There were two long King’s tables, that each accommodated 66 guests, situated in the center of the two featured art galleries at the MCA.

Down each of the long tables, Sprout brought Pooja’s vision of modern elegance to life. The flowers and decor stayed true to the minimalist and sophisticated theme. The color scheme included bright green, ivory, blush, and gray which we situated in a line on top of a gunmetal gray runner to create a striking line down the long table.

In addition to incorporating the art into their wedding day, Pooja and Chris also made the menu a priority. Wolfgang Puck Catering customized the menu, all the way down to the cake. Since they couldn’t decide on one cake flavor, Wolfgang Puck Catering created a plated trio of cakes to bring in all of their favorite desserts: mini carrot cake, banana cake with chocolate ganache filling, and strawberry tart with pistachio crust.

Chris designed all of the paper goods – everything from the invitations to the menus and programs. He even created a personalized CTA rail map itinerary that was attached to each of the guests’ welcome bags. He went the extra mile to create individual menu cards for each guest. When each guest sat down, the menu in front of him or her included their name, their placed card number, and listed out the specific entree that they selected. It was such a great way to utilize Chris’ talent and to make the guests feel special!

The entire wedding was beautiful and I am so happy to have had the opportunity to work with this couple. I still can’t get over Pooja’s Nicole Miller wedding dress, the grand exit among sparklers, and the vintage white Bentley that they rode off in at the end of the evening!
