What a beautiful time we had with Sandra + Dan. These two tied the knot earlier this year in the Cayman Islands and had an incredible reception in August. We had a wonderful time taking Sandra's vision and bringing it to life with a team of incredible vendors! Everything came together beautifully for a classy evening during which they danced to The Modern Sounds, with a special guest, incredible blues vocalist Oscar Wilson, and everyone went away with meringues from Sugar Fixe, with custom artwork by Dan's brother. 

It was an evening that truly reflected a wonderful couple, and we'll miss them! Congratulations, newlyweds!

What a beautiful night! We had the best time with this gorgeous couple. Erin + Steven are an incredibly generous, kind pair of educators and we were thrilled to be a part of their day. The ceremony at St. Ben's, the parish Erin grew up in, was gorgeous, the humidity abated for a beautiful cocktail hour on the roof of Ignite, the toasts were so sweet, and then they partied their butts off. Such a fun couple, such wonderful guests, a great team of vendors...we couldn't ask for anything more.

Congratulations, Erin + Steven! We wish you a long, happy life together.

Talk about a beautiful couple! Lindsey + David had the most wonderful, low key, sweet day at Salvage One. They started their day together getting their hair done, had a sweet, intimate ceremony, and danced the night away with their wonderful friends and family. Lindsey wore her mother's dress, Layla took amazing photos, and everyone had a blast. Just look at the incredible joy on their faces. We're so happy we were able to be a part of their amazing day. 

Congratulations, beauties!

What a beautiful night we had on the Chicago River with Claire + Cyrus! Day of coordination is such a joy with a bride as organized as Claire was! We loved everything from the look of the farm tables, to the boat blasting Usher's "Yeah!" -- Claire's SONG in college -- to the sweet first dance and the incredible dance party. Even the heat wasn't so bad! And let's talk about Claire's beautiful dress! So unique. They are two of the sweetest people, who are so in love, and we couldn't have been happier to be a part of their day. 

Congratulations, you two! We know you're going to have a long and happy life together!
