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!

CEREMONY: ST. BENEDICT | RECEPTION: IGNITE GLASS STUDIO | PHOTOGRAPHY: DAWN E. ROSCOE | CATERER: COCINA FUSION | FLORALS: STELLA GRAY BLOOMS | PHOTOBOOTH: SMILEBOOTH | CAKE: SWEET MANDY B'S | HAIR: JENNEE MILLER + ELEANOR DRISCOLL | MAKEUP: TRICIA CLARKE + MAKEUP BY JAYCIE | DECOR: ART OF IMAGINATION | DJ: TOAST + JAM

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.

VENUE: FIRST UNITED CHURCH OF OAK PARK | PHOTOGRAPHY: PFEIFFER PHOTO | CATERING: WASHBURNE CULINARY INSTITUTE | CAKE: SUGAR FIXE | MUSIC: KARA KESSELRING BAND | PHOTOBOOTH: SHUTTERBOOTH 

What a lovely day we had with Gina + Norris! Such a sweet couple to celebrate love with. We had so much fun transforming their church space with Washburne Catering into a gorgeous reception! It was a hot, humid, beautiful day, and Gina made such a lovely bride. We were ecstatic for her as she took a quiet moment and then walked herself down the aisle to her handsome groom. Delicious food followed, a magician entertained the guests, and Shutterbooth provided fabulous memories for the couple and guests.

Congratulations, Gina + Norris! We know you're going to have a wonderful life together!

VENUE: THE REVIVAL THEATER | CATERING: THE NILE | PHOTOGRAPHER: JPP STUDIOS | PHOTOGBOOTH + DJ: AWESOME DJS | BAKERY: SUGAR LOAF

A comedy club was the perfect setting for this Chicago teacher and Chicago cop to get married.  Not only do these two love to make each other laugh, Jeanne, the bride, is a comedian as well.  This fun, easy going couple actually knew each other as kids and reconnected later as adults.  This wedding had a relaxed atmosphere filled with laughter, dancing, and great food. Congratulations Jeanne and Dan!
