Lauren & Daniel, The University Club

 In Chicago Wedding Planning, Pen / Carlson, Real Chicago Weddings, The University Club of Chicago

I had so much fun meeting Lauren and her mom, Kimberly, the year before Lauren and Daniel’s wedding. Lauren is full of energy, funny and outgoing. She was so excited to talk about the plans that would be happening in the coming year. Lauren was finishing school in Chicago and had met Daniel a few years prior. They chose the Michigan Room of The University Club for their wedding reception. They loved the elegant charm of the classic ballroom but we gave it a modern twist with the colorful floral and décor that Lauren and Daniel chose.

The invitations and programs were kept simple and beautiful with creams, gold and black text. The bridesmaids each carried a different color bouquet of orchids that popped against their black dresses. Renee, from Kehoe Designs, designed the stunning monobotanic floral arrangements for the guest tables. We used an artistic collection of square vases filled with Hawaiian orchids, hydrangea, spray roses and peonies for each table. The colors of fuschia, emerald and orange were stunning. The tables were square with crisp white linens and clear Versaille chairs to enhance the vibrant colors of the centerpieces.

Lauren and Daniel’s wedding was so much fun! Spoken Four kept the dance party going all night and the guests were loving every minute of it.
