Weddings will look different from the large social events we are used to for the near future as only small gatherings are allowed. Don’t put your life on hold and postpone saying “I do” as we wait for the world to return to normal (or whatever normal will look like). Do something more to mark this momentous occasion than a civil ceremony in the beige basement of city hall. With our Neighborhood Nuptials package, we’ll make it simple to get married this year (while still observing safety regulations from our local government) by having an intimate ceremony celebration that is both approachable and meaningful.

At Naturally Yours Events, we recognize how COVID-19 has affected our community, couples, and celebrations. We also express gratitude to those providing us with the necessary goods and services to keep us safe, fed, and healthy. These are difficult times and each of our lives have been individually & uniquely altered by this pandemic as stay-at-home orders continue through the spring and restrictions are applied on social gatherings for the near future and beyond.

We are navigating this new reality with our couples and feel the heartache that you’re experiencing as the wedding you have been saving for and pouring every bit of time and energy into is being affected. While Illinois’ reopening plan will allow small gatherings of 10 and 50 in phase 3 and 4 respectively, we understand how having these restrictions in place may not line up with what you envisioned for your wedding day. So what do you do?

By now you are aware of our country’s need for social distancing. Every person’s daily life has been affected by the spread of the novel coronavirus. Weddings and events have been postponed and there is a higher level of uncertainty in our community. We’ve been busy at Naturally Yours Events (while working from home) navigating this situation with our clients. We aren’t scientists, doctors or fortune tellers but we continue to stick to our core values and mission of injecting personality and poise into celebrations that are well orchestrated, meaningful, and natural.

All that being said, we want to spread a little positivity with you, as much as we are able to. After a few days of being cooped up in our houses, we are looking for ways to connect with our loved ones and celebrate joys in our lives. So we are laying out our suggestions for virtual celebrations and gatherings so you can stay safe and remain sane! View full post »

After meeting in a stage play, Michelle and Antonio grew a life together that they dubbed ‘pioneer chic’. They enjoyed urban homesteading, making their own wine, and cooking together. They also live a sustainable lifestyle, reusing everything that they can so they wanted to apply that green mission to their wedding. As a green wedding planner and member of the Green Wedding Alliance, we were ecstatic when Michelle and Antonio asked us to help them plan their day.
