Sunny October Disposition

This past October we loved this wedding at the Saddle & Cycle Club with Greatest Expectations!  So many beautiful and soft colors, and the loveliest and happiest sunflowers for the ceremony!  We used cedar from the family's property to be included in the bridal party bouquets and boutonnieres.  It could not have been sweeter!

Angie & Ben

Tomorrow is September's eve.  The air is carrying a sense of calm this evening.  Thought it would be a nice night to share with you some beautiful images from Danielle Aquiline.  I like Danielle's photography style and I think her website is incredibly charming.  Enjoy these images from Angie & Ben's beautiful wedding!!

Angie's colors were dramatic and beautiful, but her bridal bouquet was kept sweet & soft with a little peach added in.

I love how her tattoo compliments the bouquet.

The ceremony & reception both took place at the W City Center.

As always, Greatest Expectations provided flawless coordination!!  Those ladies are simply fabulous to work with!

We included our crystal votive holders on the tables with mercury glass vessels.

The centerpieces were so lush with peonies, dahlias, garden roses and more.  Agapanthus & Queen Anne's lace added some texture.  The silver & sparkles really transformed the room into an even more elegant and sophisticated setting.

Contrast is never tiresome.

It's later than I thought, 10:21 and I'm tired.  I want to read.  I've been lost in the words of a Russian poet and his translator.  It's quiet tonight.  A good night for Sam Cooke, a good night to ignore the spider to my right, a good night to lay on the couch, belly flat considering other things.  It's a good night for quiet.

Congratulations Angie & Ben.  I really loved working with you two.

Andrea & Rob

Last weekend we worked on a very elegant wedding at Fulton's on the River.  This wedding is really a beautiful description of the Classic Chicago Wedding.  A beautiful bride, her gorgeous gown, a happy groom, simple design and a view of the river.  Congratulations to Andrea & Rob!!  And thanks so much to Greatest Expectations for flawless coordination and Jessie & Eric from Simply Jessie who took these stunning images.  It was a gorgeous day.
