With the temperatures falling in Chicago again, I am instantly reminded of Becky & Nick’s winter wedding from earlier this year. Nick’s mother had contacted LK Events to help with the logistics of the wedding, because she wanted to ensure the couple enjoyed their day and were not too stressed out for the months leading up to the wedding day.
Becky & Nick chose to have a “First Look” at Bond Chapel on the University of Chicago campus and Stoffer Photography captured this moment so brilliantly. How romantic are the historic buildings, the falling snow, and this adorable couple? Guests began arriving at Bond Chapel as the snow really started to fall and it added to the whimsical feeling of the day for Becky & Nick. A very unique touch to their wedding ceremony was that Becky’s father performed the ceremony. Not many brides are able to say that!
After the vows and rings were exchanged, guests were then ushered out of the chapel and transported over to the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts. They were greeted with hot apple cider and hot chocolate as they mingled together and left messages for the couple in their guest book. Guests were then invited upstairs for cocktail hour and were treated to French Gimlets or a Hot Toddy, along with passed hors d’oeuvres like North African Spiced Meatballs and Butternut Squash Soup.
The 9th Floor Performance Hall was transformed by Lynn at Pollen into an elegant, natural, and effortless garden. The color palette revolved around soft neutral tones of blush, pale peach, champagne, ivory and grey with seasonal flowers and succulents as the feature. After both sets of parents welcomed guests to the reception, the Buffet opened, featuring Poached Atlantic Salmon and Sliced, Pepper-Crusted Bistro Steak. After the heartfelt speeches from the two matron’s of honor and best man, Becky and Nick enjoyed their First Dance with the snow continuing to fall outside. Congratulations to Becky & Nick!
