    Classic + Romantic Chicago Wedding

    Kristin and Max both wanted a traditional, elegant historical Chicago wedding that would show their guests all the city has to offer. To set the tone for the chic affair, Kristin chose vintage-style details and pastel peach and pink florals mixed with dusty miller from Nancy Krause. The soft flowers paired well with taupe one-shoulder bridesmaids dresses by Bella Bianca, which is where Kristin found her gown as well. We are swooning over the timeless lace confection by Junko Yoshioka! After a ceremony at the intricately detailed St. Vincent de Paul Parish that included communion, Kristin and Max directed guests to the Chicago History Museum for an elegant, sophisticated reception that really shows off the Windy City. Gold, silver, peach, and pale yellow decor is slightly unexpected but still classic, and we adore the incorporation of the colors and greenery on the wedding cake from Konrad’s Bakery! And because we love a bit of whimsy in every wedding, we can’t get over the Ferris wheel escort cards—adorable! These gorgeous images from Hunter Photographic capture the day perfectly!

    Elegant Gold Ballroom Wedding

    Ahh, the soft romance of Rachel and Andrew’s wedding is simply breathtaking! We’re loving the vintage feel of this Dearborn, Michigan, affair, starting with an outdoor ceremony and followed by an ethereal monochromatic reception at The Henry Ford that’s sprinkled with metallics and pinks for a fairytale feel. Rachel and Andrew opted for three ceremonies; a ketubah signing, then a small family ceremony held beneath an embroidered cloth chuppah, and finally a larger one that included a lush flower-covered chuppah. Classic, fluffy blooms from Bellisario Florist mark the elegance Rachel desired for the day; Dream Wedding & Event Planners helped to make each wish a reality. We adore Rachel’s unique headpiece and chunky pearl jewelry, a mix of modern and classic that work perfectly with her stunning gown! These lovely images from Blaine Siesser Photography make us wish we were there!

    Central Park Boathouse Wedding

    You first spied Kristen and Britt in their lovely Brooklyn engagement session, and we are so thrilled today to share their classic Manhattan wedding. They selected one of New York’s most gorgeous settings, The Loeb Boathouse Central Park, as their venue, and the theme of the day was natural beauty. The cherry blossoms were out in full force for their spring nuptials, and they made the most of them, with stunning blossom branch centerpieces created by Lenox Hill Florist, and of course, portraits in the blooming park! The couple rode across the lake to the Boathouse in a Venetian gondola, and the party greeted them upon arrival with cheers. Britt, a graphic designer, created all of the printed materials for their wedding, in their true-to-NYC black and white palette. Enjoy these beautiful images from B Hull Photography!
