As we bid adieu to the whirlwind of 2023, a year where our hearts were as full as our calendars, we can’t help but smile at the over 70 beautiful weddings we at Naturally Yours Events brought to life across Chicago and the splendid Midwest. From up-cycled decor that sparkled under starlit skies to vows exchanged in the embrace of nature’s splendor, each one was a unique celebration, blending our passion for eco-conscious choices with timeless romance. We kept it real and down to earth, just like our amazing couples.
Here’s a recap of what 2023 had to offer.
