An Elegant December Wedding at the Drake Hotel Featured in Inside Weddings

December weddings are simply beautiful.  Wintry and fresh with a nod to the holidays, this affair at The Drake Hotel was no exception.  Flawlessly coordinated by SQN Events & photographed by Avery House, we love every single detail.  Check out the printed winter 2018 edition Inside Weddings for a beautiful write up!

Classic at the Country Club

This morning we were thrilled to see that one of our favorite classic weddings was featured on one of our favorite blogs.  A ceremony overlooking Lake Michigan was the perfect backdrop for a tailored but romantic collection of blooms.  It was the perfect afternoon coordinated by SQN Events at the Shoreacres Country Club.  Kina Wicks Photography beautifully captured these photos, and you can see a full post on Carats and Cake!

September at the Botanical Garden

Last September we worked on the most beautiful wedding at the Chicago Botanical Gardens.  Flawlessly organized by SQN Events, we could not have been happier with the elegance that included some of our favorite blooms and beautiful wispy foliages.  The ceremony backdrop was an overgrown collection of seasonal greenery and grasses with fresh blooms.  Centerpieces sported mercury glass and contrasting colors.  And the hanging chandelier was whimsical and bright!  Olivia Leigh Photographie captured all the beautiful details.

It's always such a pleasure to team up with so many fabulous vendors, thank you so much!!!

Elaina & Anthony, two chefs & a wedding!

It's so very exciting when friends in the wedding industry celebrate their own wedding!  I was over the moon when the talented Elaina from Boutique Bites had asked to meet with us regarding her flowers.  She had teamed up with Beth from SQN Events to plan a romantic and culinary divine wedding at Tru Restaurant, where her fiancé (now husband!) is chef.  This wedding was SO much fun to work on, Elaina's spunk and excitement was infectious.  The end result of glow and enchantment was simply beautiful.

Congratulations to Elaina & Anthony!!

A Little Sprinkle

I've been meaning to post these photos forever, back in February we were part of throwing a little baby "Sprinkle" along with Beth from SQN Events & Katherine from Greatest Expectations for our dear friend Heather!  Heather is also from Greatest Expectations and was expecting her 4th little baby girl (who is now here and the cutest little nugget!).  We dined over the most delicious lunch at Floriole and shared in the excitement of anticipation.  Congratulations to Heather & Todd!!!

This year we helped out some friends at Indiewed, an incredibly festive and fun bridal show help in Chicago (also starting to make its way to other cities).  Although we didn't have a booth, some of our dear colleagues and close friends asked us to collaborate with them on their booths.  Above is fresh & bright booth from Jayne Weddings and Aged Vintage Rentals.  Thank you Amanda Megan Miller Photography for the above photos!

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!

Inspired Creations

This evening I found myself lost in iphoto.  I'm trying to organize it, and while doing so, I came across some images that I was surprised I hadn't yet shared.  During Indie Wed we participated in the Inspired Creations Contest, and found ourselves as runner ups!

I want to send a little thank you out to the following, who made this such a fun shoot! Elizabeth Anne Designs, SQN Events, Simply Jessie Photography, Courtney Callahan Paper, Truffle Truffle & Femme du Coupe.  You are all such an incredibly talented group, and I am so tickled and honored to have you all in my life!! ~~~ Now, enjoy the photos, and bottom's up!
All these photos are by Simply Jessie!

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!!
