Rachel & Jeremy

We're really excited to share with you some photos from Rachel & Jeremy's wedding this past June at Salvage One.  This couple were so wonderful to work with.  So very laid back with a vintage and DIY theme.  The color palette is one of my current favorites, neutral and soft.  The blooms were plush and romantic.  And the day was beautiful.  Thank you to Maypole Studios for once again (as always) capturing the incredible photos!!

We really just love the creamy and neutral color palette that Rachel chose.

Doesn't she look beautiful?!


Congratulations to Rachel & Jeremy!!!

The Love Bike!

It would be criminal if Labor Day came and went bidding summer a farewell adieu, and I didn't share with you these incredible images of The Love Bike.

The amazing bicycle was won by Bethany of Maypole Studios.  The only stipulation to winning was to create a photo shoot involving the bike.  With some help from a fabulous (and I truly mean fabulous) team, here are the images!

Beth from SQN Events styled the adorable engagement shoot complete with picnic!  That little bicycle tea towel is just too adorable.

Nika Vaughan made magic (as always) with her mad makeup skillz.

There are so many more amazing photos including the behind the scenes and the video (yes, video!!)  right HERE!  It's honestly just so very cute, you'll love it!!

A May Day wedding, Elizabeth & Alex

Every now and then you meet with one of those clients that makes us kind of have a crush on them.  That's the case with Elizabeth & Alex.  When Joan from Five Grain Events brought Elizabeth, her mother & Alex to our studio to discuss their wedding, I immediately liked them.  Elizabeth is simple in the most elegant of ways.  She shyly told me that she doesn't really like flowers.  She likes greenery.  And artichokes.  And succulents.  And billy balls.  She and Alex wanted a whimsical, garden party, & here is what we came up with!  Above is her bridal bouquet complete with those artichokes and billy balls, white lilac, sapponaria, muscari, spirea & geranium foliage.

Below are some incredible photos from Bethany & Jamie of Maypole Studios.  You may remember their incredible talent from The Love Bike! .

Aren't these two adorable?

Their morning wedding took place at The Chicago History Museum, a personal favorite location of mine.  We mixed our vintage blue mason jars with terra cotta pots on the tables to create a garden-like setting.

Mint & geranium foliage added such an incredible fragrance to the room.

Billy balls and blue muscari added a little color to the setting.

Succulents were surrounded by wildflower blooms & garden picks held the table numbers.

Such a beautiful day!  A few other things about this couple.  During cocktail hour a bluegrass band played for the guests.  Elizabeth and Alex (and E's mother) all joined in for a song, playing their own instruments.  They also spent their honeymoon in Stillwater, MN.  You know, that town I want to retire in.  They attended a pottery festival and bought their mix matched china set from various designers.  And when we met for a beer at the Maproom a month or so post wedding, I found out that E speaks Japanese.  These two were still in their amazing newlywed bliss as we sat and chit chat about the wedding and future dreams.  I'm hoping to catch up again with them soon.  Congratulations to Elizabeth & Alex!!! xoxox!
