Blair & Rob, Chicago History Museum

Even though a couple’s wedding day is nothing about me, there are some couples that just bring me so much joy and laughter. This was the case with the stunning Blair and debonair Rob. Our journey together in planning their wedding was filled with fun and continually crossing off items on our To-Do lists!

When our team arrived at Public Chicago on the morning of the wedding, Blair and her ladies and her mom were in the midst of all of their beauty appointments with Lauren Logan and Brian Sutherby. There was much excitement in the air and soon we were putting Blair into her wedding dress. It was a very special moment as this was her mother’s wedding dress and doesn’t she look stunning? We then brought up Rob to have a look at his bride and their moments were absolutely priceless.

Rob, Blair and their Wedding Party then left with Taylor Lord for some fun photos around Chicago! We then joined up with them again at the Chicago History Museum for a few more photos until guests began arriving. Allison from Stems completely transformed the South Gallery with beautiful large arrangements with lush floral, branches, foliage and vines. This is definitely one of our favorite ceremony set-ups! When guests entered the room they were greeted with Ginger Rosemary Lemonade and lovely prelude music from artistrings.

Rev. Dave Angle performed a lovely ceremony for Blair and Rob and soon we had guests out on the Plaza for the Cocktail Hour. It was a beautiful July day and guests enjoyed the Specialty Cocktail of Bees Knees and hors d’oeuvres like Ahi Tuna on a Lotus Root Chip and Chile Rubbed Chicken in a Crispy Wonton. While guests mingled and congratulated Blair and Rob, the North and South Gallery was transformed into an elegant summer evening reception. From the ivory shantung linens to the fruitwood versaille chairs and the stunning centerpieces, the room was a perfect picture of elegance.

Blair and Rob chose for just the two of them to be introduced into the room for dinner and both of their fathers provided a short speech before dinner was served. The meal that evening featured Blair’s recipe for Blue Cheese Grits alongside a duet of Flat Iron Steak and Pan Seared Chicken. The guests absolutely devoured it all! But there was still room for some delicious Red Velvet Cake from Amy Beck Cake Design. Then to top off the celebration of Blair and Rob, the Gold Coast All Stars kept all of the guests on their feet all night. What a wonderful evening and congratulations to Blair & Rob!

Jennifer & John, The Field Museum

One of the many highlights of last year was planning Jennifer and John’s wedding. Jennifer and John met at Vanderbilt University and started dating soon after they graduated. Jennifer is originally from Dallas and John is from Atlanta and they currently live in Houston together. You may be wondering why this adorable couple chose to get married in Chicago. They lived here together for a year while John attended law school and both fell in love with the city. They wanted a summer wedding and knew Chicago would be the perfect destination for their guests who were all traveling from afar.

Each time Jennifer and her Mom came to Chicago – we would make the most of our time with the planning and meeting their vendors. I will never forget spending time together while they were in town; we had a blast! Jennifer and John fell in love with the Field Museum; it was a place they visited often while living here and a perfect way for their guests to experience one of the cities’ most iconic venues.

Heffernan Morgan and Frost worked their magic on creating the most gorgeous look outside on the terrace for their ceremony and inside Stanley Field Hall for the reception. We adorned the aisle with fresh rose petals and Jennifer and John were married under a wrought iron arbor decorated with greenery and ivory and peach blooms. We also hung a crystal chandelier that added a touch of glam for this outdoor setting. Cocktails took place on the north terrace overlooking the city. We set up the Escort Cards on a bed of peach and blush blooms in mirrored boxes for guests to take and find their seats. Guest tables were decorated with ivory and green hydrangeas, peach spray roses, open blush garden roses, café au lait dahlias, garden stock and coral roses. We used mercury glass votives, footed glass bowls, varying candlesticks and etched clear glass. We lit each table and the entire Hall with ambient lighting that gave the room a warm glow as the sun went down. Jennifer and John were introduced into the reception and cut their incredible cake from Amy Beck and John was surprised by Jennifer’s thoughtful groom’s cake, which was a Game of Thrones theme. He loved it! The Gentleman of Leisure kept the entire dance floor packed all night and Vrai captured every moment. Before departing in a classic Rolls Royce, Jennifer and John exited their reception by walking down the south steps as guests tossed fresh rose petals for them. We had an unforgettable wedding weekend for Jennifer and John!

Tiffany & Brandt, Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum

I just love getting referred to new brides from past brides – especially when they are best friends! After planning three of her friends’ weddings, Tiffany contacted me about planning her own nuptials to her fiancé, Brandt and I was so excited! Not only did this give me a chance to work with such an incredible person who is now a dear friend of mine, but I was able to re-connect with my past clients and now we get together often. I am so fortunate to have made such close friends simply from planning their weddings. These relationships are the reason I love what I do; being able to plan weddings for fabulous brides who become dear friends of mine in the process.

Brandt proposed to Tiffany at a charity event in front of their friends and family and even had a friend record it live so Tiffany could always remember the moment she got engaged. Brandt put so much thought and detail into this incredible proposal that Tiffany knew she wanted to do the same for their wedding. They were married at St. Alphonsus Church in Lakeview and chose the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum for their reception. Since we had a dancing crowd – we kept the South Gallery open for dessert and dancing and were lucky enough to have a gorgeous September night in Chicago, where we could dine outside on the terrace.Guests enjoyed Sweet Tea Vodka Lemonades in Mason Jars along with a “southern inspired” dinner thanks to Blue Plate Catering.

Jesse Deckard (formerly with Event Creative) designed the guest tables that were adorned with mercury glass globe risers, illuminated from within and topped with ivory floating candles, surrounded by hydrangeas and deep purple dendrobium orchid blossoms. We used leather crystal studded tufted boxes filled with a bed of purple seafoam statis, purple hydrangea, garden stock and dendrobium orchids on the remaining guest tables. We suspended paper lanterns over the dance floor illuminated in purple along with hundreds of twinkling candles on the window ledges surrounding the South Gallery.

Tiffany surprised Brandt with a Tipsy Cake grooms cake featuring an Ed Hardy T Shirt with a Protein Shake – he loved it! Guests danced the night away, thanks to Dustin with Toast and Jam. Christina Noel and  I Do Films captured every moment of this magnificent wedding weekend. Congrats Tiffany and Brandt!

Kristen & Mike, Greenhouse Loft

Kristen and Mike were such a sweet couple and I knew from the first day I met Kristen, we were going to have a blast working together. I loved working with the two of them and every detail that went into this wedding was so memorable and made for such a great planning experience. Kristen and Mike were married at Greenhouse Loft in Chicago, a venue that had recently opened and was under complete construction when Kristen and Mike first chose it for their wedding venue. Greenhouse Loft is located in the historic Green Exchange Building and it was extremely important to Kristen and Mike to incorporate green details into their own wedding day. Kristen and Mike wanted to incorporate their alma maters into their wedding day as well, as both of their college experiences were so important to them.

Kristen spent four years on the cheerleading team at the University of Michigan and ended up finding her dress at a boutique in downtown Ann Arbor. That was so special to Kristen as her college town is so very dear to her heart. She incorporated the beautiful lace detail from her dress into her Amy Beck wedding cake as well. We also had the Wolverine Bride and Redbird Groom as their cake topper! Navy was one of her wedding colors, she wore a UMichigan Garter and her mother sewed UMichigan charms onto the heel of her Kate Spade shoes – “Go Blue!” At the reception, we served Bride and Groom specialty cocktails, Blueberry Vodka and Lemonade called “The Maize N’ Blue” and to represent Illinois State for Mike we served Red Sangria, “Redbird Sangria.”

We had a beautiful ceremony in the courtyard of Greenhouse Loft and Dolce Strings performed music that was meaningful to the Bride and Groom. Songs included, Coldplay’s “Paradise,” and Journey’s, “Don’t Stop Believing.” Kristen and Mike’s ring bearer carried an adorable wooden sign that read, “Uncle Mike, Here Comes Your Bride!” We hung stem-less wine glasses on shepherd hooks (that Kristen’s dad drilled holes in!) that we used as floral vases.

Guests enjoyed reading wooden signs that Kristen had made and we placed them all around the Loft with lyrics to their first dance song, Adele’s, “Make You Feel My Love. Kristen spent time creating all of her own personalized invitations, place cards and guests’ favors which were mason jars guests could use to fill up their own candy from a personalized candy station that filled the center of the room. Kristen’s sister designed the table numbers and head table place cards and signage. The entire family played such a role in all the planning for Kristen and Mike, which made the day so intimate and meaningful. Hearty Boys created ethnic food stations from all over the world that symbolized Kristen and Mike’s heritage and favorite cuisines. DJ Chris Vittorio with Spin Productions kept the dance floor packed all night long and Heather Parker Photography captured every moment and every personalized detail of Kristen and Mike’s wedding day!

Annie & Ian, River East Art Center

Annie was in the middle of her residency while we planned her wedding and she knew exactly what she wanted – which always helps when it comes to a limited schedule!   Annie and Ian had an interfaith ceremony at Holy Family Church, one of my favorite churches in Chicago.   Dolce Strings provided the wedding ceremony music and I always love working with them. Miraculously, we missed the storm that strolled through the city, as we were in the middle of the ceremony. Annie and Ian took their photos prior to and you can’t even tell there was a storm in Heather’s beautiful photos!

Guests were then able to enjoy cocktails outside on the terrace of the River East Art Center with music by Spanish Guitarist, David Chiriboga and hors d’oeuvre from Blue Plate Catering. Renee Price, Senior Consultant for Kehoe Designs, designed a stunning reception .  We used lucite versaille chairs, gunmetal twist linens and eggplant lamour napkins.  The tables were decorated beautifully with clear glass vases of varying heights and sizes, cascading mokara and dendrobium orchids and lush purple hydrangeas. Surrounding the vibrant floral were dozens of floating candles and votives. David Young of  Entourage of Ken Arlen Music, kept the dance floor packed the entire night.  It was a beautiful wedding and reception and I am so glad Heather Parker was there to capture it all!

Kathryn & Zach, Harold Washington Library

I had the pleasure of coordinating a friend’s wedding this past May. The groom, Zach, and I have known each other since the 6th grade and when his fiancé called me about their wedding, I was ecstatic. When Kathryn and I met to discuss her wedding I knew immediately we would become friends. We had a blast chatting about her ideas and visions for her wedding day.

The planning began immediately and Kathryn and Zach selected Harold Washington Library for their venue. We then booked Deja Vu Band, Tammy Leathem of Leathem Photography and Fleur Couture to handle their floral and décor. Although we knew the G8-NATO Summit was taking place in Chicago that weekend, we weren’t informed until February that the Library would be used for Federal Government purposes. Our invitations were printed, Save the Dates had been sent and all vendors were booked, so I knew we had a challenge ahead of us. I immediately contacted everyone in my network, the City of Chicago and all of our vendors to inform them of the situation and prepare them for a back up plan. Nothing was going to stop this wedding from happening – not even NATO!

We ended up having a fantastic wedding weekend! We started at Osteria Via Stato for their rehearsal dinner with family and close friends (and an awesome groom’s cake – thanks to Amy Beck Cake Design). On Saturday, Kathryn and Zach had their first look at the park outside the Sofitel. After photos around Chicago and staying clear of the protests, Kathryn and Zach were married at St. James in Lincoln Park. The reception at Harold Washington Library was stunning! Deja Vu kept the dance floor packed all night long and Blue Plate catered an exquisite meal for the guests. We are so fortunate to Harold Washington Library for their support and all the vendors involved given the circumstances with NATO. Kathryn and Zach had an unforgettable wedding weekend!

Kristi & Jon, Adler Planetarium

The moment I met Kristi, I knew we would be friends for life. And we are. Not only because we both share a love of wine, but because I felt like I was talking to one of my best friends from childhood during our initial meeting. Kristi is the sweetest girl I know; she has the most energetic and outgoing personality and makes everyone feel like a close friend. I knew we were going to have a blast planning her wedding for the next year.

Kristi and Jon walked into the Adler Planetarium and fell in love; we knew that was the place for them to have the reception. Kristi is modern and tres chic, but simple and classic; we knew we had the perfect setting for her wedding reception. I will never forget walking into Blumen Design, for Kristi’s floral sample and she screamed when she saw her floral design – with excitement! Amy and I still laugh about that to this day; she was just so overjoyed with everything and that made the planning process so much fun, for everyone involved.

Kristi and Jon’s wedding day was picture perfect. She looked exquisite in her Saison Blanche Couture bridal gown and her bridesmaids looked gorgeous and cheerful in their bright yellow dresses with hot pink bouquets. Her reception was stunning – black linens and chairs, hot pink and yellow floral and pink up lights – incredible against the city skyline. There was not a dry eye in the room as their best friends and family talked about Kristi and Jon during their reception. It was an honor to be a part of such a beautiful wedding for this beautiful couple, inside and out (and now friends for life!) Thanks Kristi and Jon!
