Julie & Laura

Julie and Laura we're one of the most fun couples to work with.  Dealing with some pretty intense floral allergies, we curated a list of blooms that were bright, textural and not likely to make anyone sneeze or break into hives (Truly not a good look on a wedding day).  The result was happy, modern and glowing!  Greatest Expectations coordinated a wonderful team including Steve Koo Photography, Courtney Callahan Paper & Ignite Glass Studios.

Cheers!


Erin & Mike

On this snowy evening, just shy of the first day of spring, I thought it was a good time to share with you some more lovely photos from Anna Guziak Photography of Erin & Mike's wedding at Salvage One!  Here is our last wedding of 2012, and it's an elegant and beautiful one at that!  We also adore the paper items designed by Courtney Callahan Paper!!  Congratulations Erin & Mike!!!

Leaping

It's Leap Day, and the word "leap" is sticking out today.  The strides we've made (especially in the last few years) are large & long.  Although sometimes tiring, we're so very proud of all our work and so very grateful for your support.  Thank you!!!

In other news, here is a beautiful Chicago wedding from this past November.  When I met Anna, I thought she was a designer.  Her ideas were so beautiful & well thought out.  Mix-matched metallics & crystal embellishments contrasted with soft blooms and deep textures.  Enjoy!

Anna's bouquet, above, is rich in texture.

The following photos are dreamy, and all from Pen Carlson.
