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!

AELO Alumni Megan + Paul, 5/12/18

CEREMONY: THE LOGAN THEATRE | RECEPTION: THE JOINERY | PHOTOGRAPHY: JIM VONDRUSKA | DINNER: HONEY BUTTER FRIED CHICKEN | STAFF: CAROL'S STAFFING | BARTENDING: DRINKS ON ME | DJ: HARSH SINGH | SHUTTLE: REGGIE'S | PHOTO BOOTH: FOTIO | HAIR + MAKEUP: SARA JEAN STEVENS FOR GRACE STUDIO

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!

AELO Alumni Louise + Chas, 4/14/18

VENUE: GARFIELD PARK CONSERVATORY | PHOTOGRAPHY: SHANTI KNIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY | CATERER: FOOD FOR THOUGHT | DJ: STYLE MATTERS | FLORIST: FIELD AND FLORIST, ARRANGED BY AELO 

Louise and Chas are the sweetest couple; they recently moved to Boston together and returned to Chicago to exchange wedding vows and celebrate with their family and friends. Held at the beautiful Garfield Park Conservatory, the wedding was set with a stunning horticultural hot house as the backdrop and included a wonderful singer, piano player and string quartet. Guests meandered through the various conservatory rooms while savoring cocktails and hors d’ouevres then dined under the vaulted ceilings of Horticulture Hall, enjoyed wedding cake handmade by the mother of the groom, then danced the night away. It was stunning way for this wonderful couple to begin their married lives together. We wish them all the happiness in the world!

Amanda and Jordan's big day was one for the books! These two college sweethearts had the most gorgeous celebration of their love.  Amanda planned everything perfectly and made sure to accent the already gorgeous Chicago Cultural Center with touches of gold.  Everything from the gorgeous drapery and lighting to the amazing desserts was right out of a fairy tale.  You could just feel the love these two had for each other. It was evident in the excitement on their faces and the way they looked into each others eyes. After dinner, Amanda and Jordan danced the night away with loved ones under the immaculate Tiffany glass ceiling. The night ended with the guests serenading the bride on her 30th birthday! Congratulations Amanda and Jordan!
