What a perfect end to a fabulous 2017 season! Our last wedding of the year was everything: stylish, fun, full of love, delicious, beautiful...everything! Cassie + Stefan got married at the beautiful and intimate Bond Chapel, and somehow we got a sunny 52 degree December day! It was thrilling. Cassie wore an incredible Alice + Ivory gown, and Stefan wore. that. blue. velvet. We loved every minute of this day, from the sweet vows to the stunning florals, to Cassie's incredible decor, to the wonderful guests which included Michelle + Miles AND Siobhan + Bill! Total perfection all around.

We wish these two generous, wonderful people a lifetime of happiness. Congratulations, beauties!

AELO Alumni Siobhan + Bill, 1/13/17

VENUE: KITCHEN CHICAGO | PHOTOGRAPHY: MIKE EDEN PHOTOGRAPHY & CANDRA UMUNNA | CATERING: RUBS BACKCOUNTRY BBQ | RENTALS: PARTY CENTRAL | VINTAGE RENTALS: CHICAGO VINTAGE WEDDINGS | BARTENDER: THE BARTEND GROUP | DECOR: THE COUPLE THEMSELVES! | DONUTS: STAN'S

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!

AELO Alumni Heidi + Mark 12/10/16

VENUE: CHICAGO ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION HOTEL | PHOTOGRAPHY: INGRID BONNE PHOTOGRAPHY | FLORALS: LIFE IN BLOOM | DJ: TOAST + JAM | CAKE: NUTPHREE'S BAKERY | RABBI LIZZI HEYDEMANN | CEREMONY MUSIC: ARTI STRINGS

What an incredible year we had with these two wonderful people! Heidi and Mark are both busy professionals, so all of us together with Heidi's mom Deborah, came together to plan one incredible weekend! It was so snowy and romantic, and they could not have been more in love. These two really knew how to sit back, relax, and enjoy their wedding weekend. From the gorgeous Ketubah signing ceremony to the perfect ceremony to the cocktail hour sushi, to the polaroid guestbook, to the excellent dinner and packed dance floor, Heidi and Mark had a night to remember, and we were so happy we were a part of it. 

All they wanted was a fabulous evening to profess their love and be with their people, and we helped with that. We're forever grateful for this job. Getting to witness all these wonderful people coming together is just the best thing in the world. 

Congratulations, H&M! We'll love you always and know you are going to have a fantastic life together!
