We have the best clients ever. Planning with Alli and Woz back in 2013 was so much fun! They were laid back, hilarious, sweet and just wonderful people all around. Making their vision come alive was a blast! The details were fantastic, and Alli’s beautiful dress was definitely a high point. The Chicago Cultural Center was the perfect background for Pollen’s romantic, free-flowing florals, and the beautiful couple had a blast dancing, smoking cigars, and laughing together. We love, love, love looking back at this one.

Rock, Chalk, J-Hawk! Our own Samantha Johnson was more than thrilled to find out that Andrea was a fellow Kansas alum, and may have squealed a bit when the J-Hawk inspired cake was delivered. This was our first wedding at one of the city's lesser known venues, the Italian Sports Hall of Fame, which happens to have an incredible 4th floor rooftop deck with one of the best skyline views in Chicago. The rain threatened all day to keep us from using the space, but at the last minute the skies cleared, and we were able to make the couple very happy by having the outdoor ceremony they'd hoped for. Andrea's bright yellow sunflowers, adorable details, and a really fun group of guests made this one of our 2014 favorites!

Once again, our wonderful Event Consultant Lauren did an amazing job planning the American Cancer Society's Black & White Ball! We are so proud of the work she does, and it was a fabulous evening with great food, music, dancing, and a successful silent and live auction, raising funds for cancer research.
