A Beautiful Wedding at the Chicago Landmark, The University Club of Chicago

We’re thrilled to share this wedding with you from just this past season. Ceremony and Reception both took place at the University Club of Chicago. Photos taken by Dory Tuohey, and planning by Tracy Events. We love the rich colors and all the tall magnolia centerpieces. And there is such a beautiful glow cast everywhere (Check out the head table!). Enjoy!

Crystals and candles

I admit, I've been a little slow around here this past week.  This heat wave we've had since Sunday is daunting.  Our little inferno that we call Home Sweet Home has a labyrinth of fans, forcing the cool air from our window a/c unit into the living room and bedroom.  The other 3/4 of the apartment is just a mess.  After eating just a peach, I'm stuffed and want to take a nap.  I've begun pretending that the walk from my car into Fleur's storefront boutique is a free day at the spa.  And yesterday while waiting for my ticket at the parking meter station, on my way to order tacos, I silently told myself "Kelly, you're on vacation in Mexico right now."  I just don't remember extremes like this when I was a kid.

But I'll save my environmental rant for another day.

Here are some photos of a recent wedding at The University Club.  I really love the Cathedral Hall room.  It's so peaceful, and setting up in the room is relaxing.  Our incredibly lovely clients, Jessica & Colm, wanted a romantic setting.  Candles everywhere and blooms in the palette of grey, white & ivory.  This is what we came up with.

The bridal bouquet featured ranunculus, garden roses, grey brunia, dahlias, lisianthus, sweet pea & hydrangea.  So lush and almost wintery.  A calm color palette.

The bridesmaids carried a similar bouquet.  Those button dahlias are adorable.

And the flower girl carried a magic wand!

The centerpieces were elegant and beautiful.  Candles, mercury glass, milk glass, vintage and new candle holders.

I was so pleased with this wedding!

I leave tomorrow for Minnesota.  To see family and enjoy a little time on the lake.  Hopefully we'll cool down a bit.  In the meantime, enjoy your Friday!!
