Vintage Inspiration at Ravenswood Event Center

We’ve seen a lot of Garden themed weddings the past few years, and lots of tropical and modern ones as well. It’s been a minute since we’ve re-visited anything vintage, and it was an absolute delight to step back into that very realm of inspiration with this beautiful wedding at the Ravenswood Event Center. The atrium in the space is one of our favorites for wedding ceremonies. Filtered beautiful light, massive windows and a beautiful outdoor space makes it a very Chicago and very special location in the city. Enjoy this wedding coordinated by Chicago Vintage Weddings (Let’s talk about those oriental rugs for the ceremony!) , ceremony by Anita Weds and beautiful photos from Red Wall Photography!

Heidi & Jonah

Heidi & Jonah were married this past Saturday, our first wedding of 2011!  I can't tell you how much I missed making bridal bouquets (they're my very favorite thing to make).

It's also so nice to have some vibrant colors in January amid all these cloudy, sleepy days I've been complaining about.  At least it's snowing right now and I have a beautiful view from the kitchen window (I love Mondays).

That's tweedia in the bridesmaid bouquets.  So sweet and delicate!  I love it!!

The ceremony & reception were at the Ravenswood Billboard Factory.  And I love it there, especially the 3rd floor's windows.  One of the best locations for a ceremony, in my mind.  The 1st floor is filled with vintage neon signs and a very impressive vintage and new car collection.

As You Wish Events coordinated the afternoon to make sure everything was place.  Really fantastic, and beautiful day.  Congratulations to Heidi & Jonah!!

As I've been saying, 2011 is bringing a really outstanding wedding season for us.  We're working on some new designs that are so creative and so fun, it's terribly exciting.  The styles range from totally elegant and sleek to whimsical and romantic.   However they all have our little touch.  I can't wait to share them all with you.
