CHURCH: FOURTH PRESBYTERIAN | VENUE: GERMANIA PLACE | CATERER: KENMARE CATERING | FLORIST: DETAILS IN BLOOM | PHOTOGRAPHY: MARK FEDERIGHI | VIDEOGRAPHER: OUR WEDDING MOVIE | DJ: TOAST & JAM | HAIR: TAMARA HOLDEN | MAKEUP: JPARK ARTISTRY | BAKERY: INGRAM’S BUSY BEE BAKERY

What a memorable evening we had with Karen and John! These two are so sweet and fun and their wedding reflected those personalities perfectly. From a show stopping fan dance to “Sisters” from White Christmas performed by the bride’s sisters to the bouncing dance floor (literally— you could feel wood floors move when then dancing got ca-razy), to a server getting down with wedding guests on said dance floor. If Karen and John’s wedding is any indication of how they will spend the rest of their lives, it will be filled with style, fun, and a lot of laughter together.

Sarah+Dan Wedding-74.jpg

CEREMONY: ROCKEFELLER CHAPEL | RECEPTION: QUADRANGLE CLUB | PHOTOGRAPHER: JUSTIN MCCALLUM PHOTOGRAPHY | DJ: FOURTH ESTATE AUDIO | CHUPPAH: CHICAGOLAND CHUPPAH

Dan and Sarah's wedding day was nothing short of perfection.  These two University of Chicago alum had a beautiful day back in the place where they met and fell in love. The intricate architecture of the  Rockefeller Chapel was a perfect backdrop for the bride and groom as they stood under an elegant, natural chuppah.  The ceremony was officiated by two of their closest friends which made the ceremony even more intimate and special. After the beautiful ceremony guests gathered at the Quadrangle Club for dinner and dancing.  The dance floor was filled all night long as Sarah and Dan danced with all of their family and friends. The day was a great start to their new lives as husband and wife! Best wishes to the happy couple.

Morning rain didn’t stop Anne and Nate from having the best day ever with their family and friends and we had a great time with all of them. The day started with photos around the loop, followed by a gorgeous formal wedding ceremony at St. Michael’s Church. Then we traveled to Lacuna Lofts were a stunningly stylish reception awaited guests. You could distinctly feel the love and affection felt for Anne and Nate radiating in the room. It was a dream. This was one of our last events of 2018 and it was so nice to draw it to a close with such lovely people in an awesome place. Congratulations!

What to even say about these two cuties! We absolutely loved working with Meghan + Daniel. They are super sweet and kind, had a great vision, and Meghan had so many lists, it made our job so easy! We loved the simple elegance of their day, and we loved that they chowed down on Five Guys after their ceremony. From the venue, to the food, to the band, it was a excellently planned day filled with so much love and laughter.

Congratulations, Meghan + Danny! We know you’ll have a beautiful life (and get a beautiful dog!) together!
