Megan & Adam, Cafe Brauer

I had so much fun working with Megan and Adam for their Fall 2011 Wedding. Megan and Adam were engaged in 2009 and we had almost two years to plan their nuptials. We had so much fun together during the planning process – morning brunches, summer lunches, and afternoon meetings finalizing vendors and getting to know one another. Due to their work schedule, we decided to plan as much as we could a year before their wedding date, which meant finalizing all of their vendors a year out. We planned their ceremony in the Foreman Pavilion of the Lincoln Park Zoo with a reception following in Cafe Brauer. The weekend began with an Indian celebration at Reza’s and Friday’s Rehearsal Dinner was held at Adobo Grill – where Megan and Adam had their first date. The wedding day was beautiful; we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect Chicago fall day. Food was especially important to them and we chose Molly at Entertaining Company. She created a custom menu for them and the we ended the dinner with Megan and Adam’s favorite dessert – cheesecake and carrot cake. Mark with Kloeckner designed the exquisite ceremony and reception décor. Megan wanted to incorporate peacock feathers so we did so in the floral centerpieces and the napkin folds which was her mother’s idea. It all came together beautifully! Toast and Jam kept the party going all night long, while Chad Husar Photography and I Do Films captured every moment of the day. I am grateful to Megan and Adam for hiring me, knowing my wedding was a month before theirs. We had an incredible wedding day for them and I know we will be friends forever!
