What an incredible wedding! What an incredible couple! The brand new gorgeous Rockwell on the River provided the backdrop for Suchi + Senthil's beautiful ceremony and reception, and we had the best time with their families. The baraat was super fun, the ceremony was beautiful, the food from Kama Bistro was outstanding, and that dance floor did not stop! We had a wonderful time getting to know Suchi + Senthil, and had a blast coordinating their wedding. 

Congratulations, you two beauties! We know you'll spend many happy years together!

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!

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!

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.

VENUE: CITY VIEW LOFT | PHOTOGRAPHER: MEREDITH DONNELLY PHOTOGRAPHY | CATERING: LM CATERING + EVENTS | FLORIST: YOUTH + YARROW | SOUND SYSTEM: ECHO LIMO

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.
