New Year's Eve at the Chicago Athletic Association

New Year's Eve we were delighted to work at The Chicago Athletic Association with one of our favorite planning teams, Jayne Weddings.  We can't imagine anything more beautiful than a celebration overlooking Michigan Avenue in such an iconic hotel!  Gold, ivory and greens made this celebration elegant and romantic.  The photos from Sean Cook Photography couldn't be more perfect!

Winter whites at the Chicago Athletic Association

New Year's Eve weddings are one of our favorites, and this year was so perfectly elegant and beautiful at the Chicago Athletic Association.  We know the professional photos will be available soon, but here are a few peeks.  Jayne Weddings styled the evening perfectly, with creamy winter colors and lots of glow.  The gunni eucalyptus has the perfect coloring, the roses are so rich and lovely.  Overall, this was the best way for us to end 2016 and ring in the new year.

Flamingo, Baby!

Just a week ago we had the pleasure of designing a tropical, Hawaiian themed baby shower for our wonderful and endlessly talented friend, Katie Jayne of Jayne Weddings!  Pink flamingo, feathery peonies and tropical blooms & foliage were the backdrop for this super happy celebration.  We even had our own 11 minute tropical rain storm, to leave us all refreshed!  Amanda Megan Miller snapped some gorgeous photos, and Elysia Root made the most incredible cake!!  We can't wait to meet Katie's little one!

Designing with Jayne Weddings at Salvage One!

In September we worked with one of our absolute fav's, Jayne Weddings.  This girl creates the most beautiful events that are elegant but have that little touch of DIY so they're the most personal event you'll attend.  The venue, Salvage One (always perfect) was glowing and the photos from Studio Finch captured all of the love!  Congratulations to Mary & Hugh!

An Ivy Room Affair

This past April we worked on a beautiful wedding with Jayne Weddings at the Ivy Room.  Absolutely thrilled that Amanda Megan Miller Photography was there to capture the most beautiful photographs of the day, she did not disappoint!  We loved every single aspect of this day!  J & L Catering as always was a dream, and Aged Rentals added some perfect touches.  We could not imagine a better start to the wedding year!

Allison & David

You KNOW events with Jayne Weddings are going to be absolutely spectacular, and that is absolutely the case with Allison & David's wedding at Loft on Lake.  The colors, marbled table runners, ceramic & brass containers from Re:find Joy & photography from Pen Carlson are just all perfect combination.  This is definitely one of our favorite weddings ever!  Congratulations to Allison & David!!

We also worked with SQN Events on their amazing Belles & Gents Lounge for a 2nd year in a row!  You might remember it from the Elizabeth Anne Designs feature right HERE.  This year the ladies at SQN took over the entire 3rd floor providing a wonderful & relaxing lounge for all those who who feeling they needed a break.  Thank you Julia Franzosa Photography for the photos below!
