Gretchen & Nic
July 10, 2010
Some weddings have a unique aspect that you’ve not seen yet in any other features. This wedding popped out at me because it was designed exactly to the couples personalities. From the vintage dress to the handmade shoes with their wedding date, to the Lego cake topper. What this wedding says to me is that you can truly do whatever you want, that’s it’s your day, and you should let your individuality guide your theme or decor.

Maurine & Linus
July 31, 2010
From the Photographer: “What makes this wedding special: Maurine met Linus at a nightclub in Prague while traveling in Europe for one summer. After their first meeting, they spent one month trekking through Europe and decided to spend the rest of their lives together. Linus proposed to Maurine in Sweden (where he was born and raised) and they were engaged for one year and married this past July. Maurine’s details were a unique combination of whimsy chic with touches of purple and yellow to create a bright, modern palette. The cake was made to reflect the architectural silhouette of the Willis Tower in Chicago and in the color combination of her dress and decor details. The flowers and bridesmaid bouquets were also very sculptural and artful and created color accents to highlight her vintage bridal accessories.”

Jessica + John
From the Photographer: “The couple rented a shuttle bus before the wedding so that we could drive through Chicago and take their wedding pictures at different iconic Chicago places. After the grand tour/photo shoot we headed back to Galleria Marchetti for the wedding ceremony and an hour long cocktail party that followed. The couple had wine labels designed in order to “number” the tables with. When the guests walked in they found their name on a smaller, personalized wine bottle which then told them the name of the table they were to sit at. For instance, Timothy Jones sat at The Millennium Park table. It was quite brilliant and absolutely beautiful.” -Jennifer Eileen Photography
