Ashley and Jon said their I Dos under the sun, outside at Greenhouse Loft. They wanted to have a more casual, chic backyard barbecue feel for their big day. Cocktail hour- which was also hosted outside- proceeded the ceremony, and the reception afterward was hosted inside the venue. They had different food stations serving a summer barbecue menu such as macaroni and cheese, pulled pork, and corn on the cob. The couple wanted to host a dinner that was a little more casual than your typical wedding reception. Instead of traditional wedding cake for dessert, they had pie by First Slice Pie Cafe. Yum!
Their decor was loosely inspired by University of Michigan colors – blue and yellow (Go Blue!). We just loved that their flowers (from Pollen) had blue and yellow but also incorporated whimsical touches of blush. The flowers were held in jars, tins and reclaimed wood boxes to bring in that backyard barbecue feel into the decor. The backdrop of the escort card table featured photos from the couple’s childhood and youth, as well as the coming of their lives together.

Jaime and Grant got married one year ago today during a heartfelt ceremony and stylish reception. The ceremony took place at St. Martha in Morton Grove, and afterward their reception at Prairie Production. The decor included farm tables, featuring cylinder vases with pops of beautiful and seasonal flowers by Fleur du Jour. The flowers were shades of pink, blush, and peach to go along with their wedding colors of mint, peach and pink. A cute little mailbox was used as their card holder, and they also had Traveling Photo Booth to capture their fun and carefree night. Little touches of Chicago were incorporated in their decor, from their invitation suite to their sweets table (which had popcorn, nostalgic candy, and old school vintage Chicago photos as the back decor). They used FIG Catering, who provided delicious cuisine for their special day. The couple was really able to add little touches of their personalities to their wedding and reception.
Happy Anniversary, Jaime and Grant!

One year ago, Daniella and Mark exchanged their vows in our beautiful city of Chicago. The couple, though from Texas, decided to have a destination wedding in the same city in which Mark popped the big question. Their friends and family flew in from Texas to share this joyous occasion with them.
The couple tied the knot during an intimate ceremony at Olive Park. The sky looked heavy with rain-filled clouds, but luckily it stayed dry for the duration of their ceremony (and started coming down soon after). Afterward, their guests moved to the Mystic Blue for a riverboat cruise filled with dinner and dancing. Guests danced with a photo of Daniella’s brother who was not able to be there with them. A travel theme was incorporated throughout their decor, which included vintage props mixed in with flowers (by Becca Blue Flowers) and a globe used as a guest book.
