I met Katrina and Michael one year before their wedding. They are the sweetest couple and we had so much fun through out the planning process. Katrina and Michael selected St. Michaels Church for their ceremony and the School of Art Institute Ballroom for their reception.
The wedding day began with hair and make up at the Palmer House hotel. Everyone was all smiles in preparation for the big day. Katrina looked timeless in her wedding gown that was designed and made by her own mother!
Kehoe Designs provided gorgeous floral and decor for this special occasion. Katrina carried a classic, tailored bouquet of ivory roses and peonies. The bridesmaids held bouquets with textural floral in shades of ivory, nude, and pale blush that accented their soft pink Two Birds Bridesmaid dresses perfectly.
Similar floral adorned the guest tables at the reception. We featured two different centerpiece designs; one consisted of a collection of ivory, white, and pale blush floral intermixed among champagne-colored mercury glass and tall cylindrical containers with floating candles and the other displayed a lush low arrangement consisting of peonies, garden roses, and ranunculus.
Guests were greeted with two speciality cocktails – a “his” and “hers”. The “his” cocktail was bourbon whiskey, apple cider, and old fashioned bitters – the perfect fall drink – and the “hers” cocktail was a refreshing Pear Martini with St. Germain elderflower liquor.
Food for Thought Catering provided a fantastic meal of Striped Seabass and Slow Roasted Hanger Steak and to top off the evening, we passed beignets and chocolate milk for a late night snack on the dance floor.
