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.

Such an incredible night. Siobhan and Bill are the cutest fox and bear ever! We loved being a part of their intimate wedding in Chicago. All of that decor was created by Siobhan herself! We were so impressed with their vision and talent and loved putting it all together for them. A touching ceremony was followed by an amazing meal from Rubs and they danced the night away to some of the best music spun by Kristin at Toast and Jam. What a perfect way to kick off our year! Congratulations, you two babes! We adore you and wish you a long and happy life together!

VENUE: CHICAGO CULTURAL CENTER | PHOTOGRAPHY: WAYNE & ANGELA PHOTOGRAPHERS | CATERER: JEWELL EVENTS CATERING | FLORIST: POLLEN | BAND: CHICAGO GROOVE COLLECTIVE | CAKE: ALLIANCE BAKERY | VIDEOGRAPHY: STILLMOTION | PHOTOBOOTH: SHUTTERBOX

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.
