There are some days that are simply perfect, and today is one of those days, because at long last, we are debuting Aisle Society to the world, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to share the absolutely gorgeous Aisle Society official brand shoot that I styled with Lauren of Every Last Detail and a dream team of Chicago’s best wedding pros at downtown’s most fabulous wedding venue, Chez. Together with the ladies from Estera Events, we set out to create an event that would showcase all of the things that Aisle Society represents: fun, friendship, community, and of course, utterly beautiful wedding inspiration! Dramatic draping from Drape Kings was the centerpiece of the room, swathed along the ceiling and leading to a ceremony altar flanked by simple but show-stopping eucalyptus arrangements from Fleur. In the rest of the details, we bathed the whitewashed space in color! Our gorgeous ladies donned frocks from Bella Bridesmaids and David’s Bridal in shades from blush to dusty blue and flowing Truvelle and Sarah Seven bridal gowns, carrying bouquets of vibrant summer blooms. The modern but elegant tabletop features glimmering sequin linens and rose gold chargers and amazing confetti popper menus from Sarah Drake Design. I’m brimming with excitement for you to watch the video of the day by the insanely talented Nicodem Creative (I dare you not to get goose bumps!) and see every gorgeous image from Alexis June Weddings!

Rachel and Jacob’s vision was “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and, with a lot of love and a fabulous team of wedding pros, their wedding at Garrison, New York’s Highlands Country Club brought that dream to life! As English teachers, the couple named each reception table after a favorite book. Rachel’s stepmother, Gina Palmer, created illustrations and graphics for all of the stationery, table cards, and menus. Bernadette from The River Garden created romantic and natural florals—with olive leaf, peonies, snapdragons, anemones, and roses—to truly transform the space into a veritable indoor garden! There’s so much sweetness and light in each beautiful image from Nicole DeTone Photography!

Lindsay and Brandon’s Sonoma County wedding was inspired by her love for France (the couple was engaged in Paris!) and the stunning wine country setting. The Geyserville Inn was the perfect setting for a relaxed garden soiree with their friends and family. It was important to Lindsay and Brandon that their wedding be full of love and laughter and that the day felt authentically “them”. So, it was only natural that their furbaby, Jasmine, was the flower girl, and Brandon’s uncle the officiant! Brandon made wooden tasting paddles for the late-night bourbon tasting bar, and the couple had a custom leather-bound journal made for their vows, to keep as a family heirloom. The reception was pure garden elegance with wrought iron chairs, cozy nooks for chatting, great food, and a fabulous DJ to keep the party buzzing. EV Floral graced the tables with fresh garden blooms including tulips, garden roses, jasmine vine, and lavender. We’re spellbound by the beauty of each and every image from Lori Paladino!
