Ooooh Ella and Adam: one of the sweetest, most laid back couples we’ve had the pleasure of working with. Loved ones from around the globe traveled to witness the two smarty University of Chicago doctorate students tie the knot on the rooftop of Ignite Glass Studios on a scorching June evening. The heat continued with an original glass blowing demonstration during cocktail hour where artists fused together crushed glass that was mixed together during Ella and Adam’s unity ceremony. During dinner, Fig Catering made sure that no one left hungry with some outstanding themed food stations that guests enjoyed while parents and the bridal party toasted the bride and groom. It was such a special evening and we hope that Ella and Adam and their lovely family and friends will cherish it forever.

What. A. Couple. These two beer loving sweethearts had the BEST most beautiful day in September. We loved planning with these two smart, funny people! They knew what they wanted and we had a blast making it happen. An intimate ceremony was followed by delicious food from Spoken, excellent beers from Begyle, a SURPRISE amazing performance by the bride, and dancing to some tunes.
Beth Ann + John, it was an honor to plan your day, and we know you (and Marla!) are going to have a wonderful life together. Congratulations!

We had a great time assisting with Jessica and Mike’s nuptials at City View Loft on a hot July day. The mother of the bride made a lot of the DIY decorations that blew us away (read: amazing, giant, wooden “W” in the entrance). Everyone in Jessica and Mike’s families and bridal party was so sweet and enthusiastic—we can’t recall another bridal party cheering when we said we were going to start the rehearsal! They were definitely ready to celebrate this marriage. The whole day was filled with so much love and laughter; we wish them the very best.

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!
The sweetest, most fun-loving couple got married, and we were so excited to have been a part of it! Annette + Adam are funny, kind, and totally in love. They had a clear vision for their day, and it was executed beautifully. We love the tropical feel! The ceremony was full of laughter, and following an excellent dinner from Real Kitchen, the dance floor was alive all night! What a beautiful couple and a beautiful night.
Congratulations,ann you gorgeous kids! We know your life together is going to be amazing!
