Sleek and Garden Inspired at City Winery.

It’s that time of year when most Chicagoans are missing summer, it is after all an incredible season in this lovely city. Which makes sense why we are always the busiest during that time, working on so many beautiful weddings. When the weather cooperates, there is nothing better than a gorgeous outdoor ceremony. Which reminded us of this beautiful and elegant, sleek yet garden inspired wedding at City Winery.

The ceremony was kept simple with a white frame and fabric, the back row of chairs matching. Peppered throughout were floral installations of blooms and foliage, triangular terrariums of blooms and inside guests danced under a trellis of suspended greenery and foliage. Lush blooms and lots of candles filled with reception tables. We hope you enjoy this wedding with photography by Jill Tiongco Photography and planning by Shannon Gail Events!

Winter Celebration at the Chicago Cultural Center

What a celebration, we loved this wedding at the Chicago Cultural Center.  Held on one of the coldest days of the year (The high was five degrees, the loading dock just a block from lake Michigan and it was an all day set up), but truly one of the warmest families we've ever worked with.  Combining Catholic and Jewish religions, we created a custom, 12' tall boxwood chuppah with a few Irish touches.  And candelabras, gorgeous, elevated arrangements, garlands and wreaths.  We'll never forget this magical day!  And a true dream team staring Five Grain Events, Becca Kaufman Orchestra, J & L Catering, Elegant Event Lighting, Nika Vaughan Bridal Artists and all the images from Jill Tiongco Photography.
