Door County Nuptials, Megan & Darrin

I don’t even know where to start with the journey that I had with Megan, Darrin & their parents. Theirs was one of the more memorable weddings that I have worked on, from beginning to end. Their wedding was a team effort – they provided the direction and I helped to curate our team to make their dream a reality. Plus we had a lot of fun and laughter together along the way.

Megan knew that she wanted to get married at her parent’s home in Fish Creek, WI. The next step was to find the right tent company to bring their vision to life. Arena Americas was able to provide the custom size, clear tent that would set the stage for this elegantly eclectic celebration in Door County, WI. Given Megan & Darrin’s hip and laid-back style, I knew I had to introduce them to John & Maura of Stoffer Photography. Their personalities meshed so well and John & Maura were able to capture every detail of the wedding weekend. I absolutely love the sweet First Look, magical First Dance, and the celebratory fireworks, which were a surprise for Darrin!

It was important to the family to use as many local event professionals and it was a fun experience to broaden my network and work with some great companies from Green Bay and Door County. There was Chives, who provided guests with culinary treats like Whitefish Bruschetta, a Raw Bar presented in a canoe, and a family style dinner that featured Fried Perch with Lobster Remoulade. Jeff from Twigs created lush garlands around the ceremony structure and on our wood tables and we brought in re:find Joy to help us with brass accent pieces. Mary from Alpha Delights created the perfect wedding cake for Megan and Darrin, but also provided an abundant and decadent sweets table for the guests to enjoy throughout the evening.

The comfort of their guests was very important to Megan and Darrin, so we researched multiple accommodations to be able to offer guests, including some VRBO homes. (This proved to be a bit of a challenge because September is still in the tourist season in Door County and our room blocks expired months before the wedding date.) They created custom welcome bags for each guest and provided trolley transportation throughout the weekend. Family and friends were also invited to the Rehearsal Dinner the day before the wedding, and the Brunch, the morning after the wedding. It really was a weekend celebration!

There were so many moments of the actual wedding day that stand out to me: the relaxed but excited atmosphere when the girls were getting ready that morning in the house, the string octet playing All of the Lights while Megan walked down the aisle, witnessing Megan and Darrin exchange their vows in front of all of their families and friends, the teamwork we had in creating a magical environment for guests in the tent, the heartfelt welcome by Megan’s father, the surprise performance of “The Cover Girls” during dinner, and a packed dance floor all night long thanks to The Becca Kaufman Orchestra. It was a night I will never forget and I know Megan, Darrin, their families and friends will not forget either!

Congratulations Megan & Darrin! I was truly honored to be a party of your beautiful celebration!

A little note from the couple:

It is difficult to find the words to express our gratitude to Nicole and LK Events for everything that was done help Darrin and I make our dream wedding a reality. Nicole’s graciousness and enthusiasm set the tone for our planning and for the wedding itself.
Nicole was on top of everything!  Her connections with reputable vendors and her ability to keep everyone on task took all of the weight off of our shoulders.  She and her team made multiple trips from Chicago up to Wisconsin to meet with our families and vendors over the planning year to ensure first hand that everything was taken care of.  All I had to do was send Nicole an email about an idea I had about music, bridesmaid gifts or photography and she would respond right away that she would take care of it…and she always did!
On the weekend of the wedding Nicole and her team worked tirelessly to coordinate set-up so that Darrin and I could spend time with our family and friends who had traveled to celebrate the weekend with us.  All that was left for us to do was sit back and enjoy some champagne!

Post-script from Nicole:

The logistics of planning this wedding in Door County, along with the teamwork from everyone involved and the fun that I had with the couple and their families prompted me to submit this wedding for the 2016 NICE Award for Best Logistical Achievement. We were announced as a nominee and the award ceremony was held in Chicago on April 12, 2016. We are very pleased to say that we won the Award! It truly took an amazing team of event professionals to bring the wedding to life!
I also submitted this wedding for the 2016 ILEA Esprit Awards for Best Wedding over $150,000. This was the first time I had submitted my work for an Esprit Award and we were truly honored to be announced as a nominee. The award ceremony was held in Austin, TX, on August 13, 2016, and we were shocked and humbled to have won the Award! With that, I again thank everyone listed below for every part they played in Megan & Darrin’s celebration!

Meg & Alex, Peninsula Hotel

I had so much fun planning Megan and Alex’s wedding. Megan was one of the sweetest brides I have worked with and Alex had the greatest sense of humor. There was something about the two of them though – they had such a connection and every time we got together we shared plenty of laughs.

Megan and Alex fell in love with the Peninsula Hotel and decided to host their ceremony and reception there.  Soon after we booked the Peninsula, we contracted with Becca Kaufman. Music was so important to them and I just knew Becca would be the perfect fit for this couple!  Becca and her band learned, “I Believe In a Thing Called Love” for their first dance and it was beautiful!  Every time I hear that song I think of Megan and Alex; it was such a special part of the evening!

Megan and her bridal party walked down an aisle adorned with mirrored cubes filled with fluffy white hydrangeas.  Heffernan Morgan created a stunning arch backdrop with crystal strands and hanging white peonies in front of a white drape.  She carried a stunning bouquet of all white peonies accented with a locket enclosed with a picture of her grandfather.  The oval dining tables were dressed with lush mirror cubes of fluffy white hydrangeas, white peonies and floating candles.  We added phalaenopsis orchids and glass globe candlesticks for the round tables and completed the look with taupe and soft pink sequin linens.

Chad Husar and I Do Films captured every moment of this incredible wedding weekend.    I was honored to help plan Megan and Alex’s wedding; hard to believe it’s been a year! Congrats you two!

Liz & Dave, Chicago Illuminating Company

I am not even sure how to begin to tell about the journey I had with Liz & Dave in planning their wedding day. It was one filled with laughter, planning pretty details, and setting a foundation of a friendship. I was so honored to work with these two…and their families and amazing team of creative partners!

We started the wedding day at the Four Seasons with Liz and her ladies having hair and make-up done by Sara & Melissa from Sonia Roselli Studios. It’s not like these girls needed a lot of extra primping to look absolutely stunning! Meanwhile, Dave and his gentlemen were relaxing in another room and even spending some time with Webster, Dave & Liz’s dog. As Tim Tab Studios and Chris & Oliver arrived at the Four Seasons, we had the wedding party finalize their preparations and let Liz and Dave have some personal time to open each other’s wedding day gifts. What a very special moment!

Once Liz and Dave were dressed in their finest and ready to go, we had them arrive separately at the Lyric Opera of Chicago for their First Look. How cute are these two!?! I don’t think they ever stopped smiling all day! The Lyric Opera was a perfect location to keep Liz & Dave and their wedding party out of the rain we had that day. But it was also fun to grab some umbrella pictures at the Museum Campus. It was so amazing to have the clouds break and sun come out for the rest of their special day! These shots from Tim and Bethany are award-winning!

While photos were being captured around the city, we were also managing the set up for the ceremony and reception at Chicago Illuminating Company. Guests arrived and walked down the brick alley to the tent covered courtyard. They were able to grab some flavored water before finding a seat, all while being serenaded by musicians from the Becca Kaufman Orchestra. Jessica from HMR Designs had worked with Liz on a romantic setting with a boxwood wall backdrop with two large arrangements flanking the couple. The use of the French Country chairs in this setting was absolutely perfect!

Rev. Tom Maluga performed a lovely ceremony for Dave and Liz with a special blessing from Father FitzGerald. Then it was time to celebrate with the new Mr. & Mrs.! Guests were welcomed into Room 21, which was decorated with hiboy and cabaret tables with cameo shantung linen and white ruffle linen with gold stich. There were also large round ottomans for additional seating. Meanwhile, the staff from Entertaining Company was passing Prosecco with a fresh raspberry garnish, Lagunitas Little Sumpin’ Sumpin, Pear & Smoked Gouda Quesadillas and Cucumber Yellowfin Tuna Lillipops…just to name a few.

Guests were then brought into the main event space for dinner. The room was a perfect mixture of sequins, stripes and pure elegance. From the drapery to the mixture of table sizes and textures to the gold rimmed glassware to the crystal versaille chairs and the low, lush floral arrangements – it was such a romantic picture. Liz and Dave had their parents and wedding party enter the dining room to “Bust a Move”, while they entered the room as husband and wife to “You Make My Dreams”. Guests enjoyed a lovely meal with a Wild Field Greens first course and a Peppercorn Beef Tenderloin & Seabass duet entrée.

After a lovely speech from Liz and Dave, they hit the dance floor for their first dance to “Into the Mystic.” The Becca Kaufman Orchestra performed this and the parent dances and then the dance floor was open. So was the dessert station!!! Between the beautiful and yummy carrot cake from Elysia Root Cakes and the mini desserts (like the warm doughnut holes and nutella crepes) from Entertaining Company, guests were in heaven. For those guests that needed a break from the dancing, we transformed the brick alley into a cigar bar. So many details and so many pretty things for a couple that I am honored to call my friends. Congratulations Liz & Dave!

PS – Please check out some of Liz’s thoughts on her wedding and follow her at Sequins & Stripes.

Laura & Greg, Chicago Botanic Garden

I absolutely adored Laura and Greg and I knew when we first met, the year was going to be filled with lots of fun and laughter. Greg and Laura are such a sweet and genuine couple and we became fast friends during the planning process.

Greg and Laura met while attending law school in Chicago. Laura is originally from Nebraska and Greg is from Atlanta. Greg proposed on the coast of Georgia and they decided to have a Chicago wedding. With family and friends coming from all over the country, they knew they wanted a beautiful outdoor setting. They chose the Chicago Botanic Garden for their wedding reception and we found a beautiful church near downtown Evanston for their intimate ceremony.

Fleur Couture designed the stunning ceremony and reception floral. We tossed hundreds of rose petals as Laura and Greg exited the church into a vintage car after their ceremony. We hung custom moss monogram letters in the English Walled Garden for cocktail hour. Guests signed Chicago vintage post cards for a unique “guest gook” and Laura designed sweet thank you notes to each of her guests on the back of her menu card. The tables were adorned with hydrangea and babies breath filled mason jars and an abundance of candles that softened the reception tent. Frost Chicago hung café lights across the dance floor and we brought in lounge vignettes for guests to sit and mingle on during the evening. Laura was exquisite in her Monique Lhuillier gown and I don’t think there was a moment when she and Greg weren’t smiling and laughing. It was an incredible evening filled with family, friends, love and laughter.

Gina & Max, The Trump Hotel

I had so much fun getting to know Gina and Max throughout the wedding planning process.  Gina and Max met in college and had been together for over ten years.  It was important that their Chicago wedding was personal and representative of who they are as a couple. Tom Maluga (their Officiant) helped them write the entire ceremony and they each wrote their own vows.  The ceremony was held at Our Lady of Pompeii, a very meaningful church to both Max and Gina.   We booked Tammy Leathem of Leathem Photography because I knew Gina and Max would love her work and of course, her incredibly upbeat personality.  Speaking of upbeat personalities – Becca Kaufman Orchestra could not have been more perfect for this couple and their guests.  Gina is originally from St. Louis so we worked with Milestone Pro videography and they were fantastic! Jesse at Event Creative designed a stunning reception at The Trump Hotel.  We draped the doors leading into the ballroom with a gunmetal twist for a dramatic entrance. Pink and white orchids and green hydrangeas submerged and cascading created a vibrant and glamorous feel to the room.    Guests enjoyed the Shutterbooth so much that the props were worn on the dance floor all night!  Gina even wore a custom cowboy hat veil and boots for her introduction with Max…and I don’t think those ever left the dance floor.  We had a blast!
