VENUE: LACUNA ARTIST LOFTS, BLANK CANVAS | PHOTOGRAPHER: ASHLEY HAMM PHOTOGRAPHY | CATERING: LM CATERING | FLORALS: DAHLIA BLOOMS | DJ: DJ CHICAGO | LIGHTING: SC LIGHTING DESIGN | CAKE: VANILLE | HAIR + MAKEUP: RAREBIRD BEAUTIES | CEREMONY MUSICIANS: BRITTANY NELSON QUARTET

The week threatened rain, but turned into an absolutely STUNNING day with Kennan + Jacob! What can we even say about clients like these? So kind, so funny, so sweet. What a joy to bring their day to life! They wed under a chuppah made by Kennan's mom out of her old treehouse (I MEAN!), LM provided an incredible meal during which we listened to heartfelt, funny speeches, Dylan from DJ Chicago kept the party going all night, and Ashley Hamm captured it all beautifully. What a beautiful day for two beautiful people.

Congratulations, Kennan + Jacob! We adore you and wish you all the happiness in the world!

VENUE + CATERING: LACUNA ARTIST LOFT | CRAFTERNOON: LILLSTREET ART CENTER | PHOTOGRAPHER: ERIN HOYT PHOTOGRAPHY | DJ: CAGE + AQUARIUM | HAIR: WE ONLY DO PRETTY | MAKEUP: KAT DEJESUS | BOUQUET + BOUT: FLOWERS FOR DREAMS | DONUTS: GLAZED AND INFUSED

What a year we had with these two wonderful people! Planning with Jennifer and Peter was a dream job. They knew what they wanted, were open to suggestions, and in the end, we had the most amazing day with them! They wanted a wedding that spoke to their unique life and relationship, and choosing to have a Crafternoon in between the ceremony and reception, being introduced to the Dropkick Murphy's, having homemade mead on the tables, and having a serious dance party with their fabulous guests, completely showcased their personalities as individuals and as a couple. It was a perfect day. 

We cried during their ceremony and hope they have an amazing honeymoon! We absolutely love you, J&P, and wish you all the best adventures to come!

Donuts and gnomes? Could there have been a better way to celebrate Candice and Steve's wedding day? These two incredibly sweet people met all because of a small garden gnome named Sven.  This fun and unique wedding was everything AELO is about.  From the cultural venue of the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture to the fun reception at Headquarters Beercade, this wedding was non-stop fun! The wedding party entrance was right out of the TV game show, "The Price is Right", name tags and all. Candice and Steve's goal was to bring family and friends together to celebrate their love for each other in a fun and relaxed way and they sure pulled it off! Congratulations again, Candice and Steve!
