CEREMONY: THE LOGAN THEATRE | RECEPTION: THE JOINERY | PHOTOGRAPHY: JIM VONDRUSKA | DINNER: HONEY BUTTER FRIED CHICKEN | STAFF: CAROL'S STAFFING | BARTENDING: DRINKS ON ME | DJ: HARSH SINGH | SHUTTLE: REGGIE'S | PHOTO BOOTH: FOTIO | HAIR + MAKEUP: SARA JEAN STEVENS FOR GRACE STUDIO

What an incredible time we had with the creative Megan + Paul! These two were so in love on their wedding day, and we loved every minute of it. Their ceremony was in a movie theatre, their dog Ripley walked down the aisle, their after party was in a  speakeasy, and Megan changed into a sparkly gold jumpsuit at the end of the night. There is nothing more we want from clients than that! They took the rain in stride, and had a blast with their friends and family. What a beautiful couple. 

Congratulations, you two!

What a joy it is when one of AELO's very own gets married! Kaitlin has been a wonderful assistant to us these last few seasons, and seeing her get married was such a joy. Rich and Kaitlin are so in love, and they had a blast at their wedding! We loved watching them have so much fun! Disney themes were prevalent, their guests tore up the dance floor, and how about that CAKE! We love it! 

Congratulations, Kaitlin + Rich! We love you and are so happy for you!

VENUE: GARFIELD PARK CONSERVATORY | PHOTOGRAPHY: SHANTI KNIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY | CATERER: FOOD FOR THOUGHT | DJ: STYLE MATTERS | FLORIST: FIELD AND FLORIST, ARRANGED BY AELO 

Louise and Chas are the sweetest couple; they recently moved to Boston together and returned to Chicago to exchange wedding vows and celebrate with their family and friends. Held at the beautiful Garfield Park Conservatory, the wedding was set with a stunning horticultural hot house as the backdrop and included a wonderful singer, piano player and string quartet. Guests meandered through the various conservatory rooms while savoring cocktails and hors d’ouevres then dined under the vaulted ceilings of Horticulture Hall, enjoyed wedding cake handmade by the mother of the groom, then danced the night away. It was stunning way for this wonderful couple to begin their married lives together. We wish them all the happiness in the world!
