Erica + Taylor | The Duck Inn Wedding | Sneak Peek

What happens when the groom is a chef?  You get one epic party with impeccable food and custom cocktails that make you melt.  Yes, there was a giant ice cube containing a frozen skull and flowers floating in a sea of booze in a mini bathtub. The place settings included crispy prosciutto with pork consommé and we all indulged in a cheese course after dinner!!  Who doesn’t love a cheese course?!  The staff was amazing and went above and beyond to keep guests dry during the downpour that arrived just as the ceremony started.  Thankfully, the sun came out and then, if the day could’t get any better, a double rainbow appeared so you know we had to go outside to capture it.  Happy one week anniversary Erica and Taylor!!

Katie + Gabriel | Logan Auditorium Wedding

Where do I begin with this one?!  This couple came to me from past clients Angie and Tony and needless to say we connected immediately.  These two planned such a unique and oh-so Chicago wedding and I have a sweet spot in my heart for weddings in my own neighborhood!  The bride got ready at Longman and Eagle and the reception was at the Tiffany Garden in Grant Park.  Gabriel surprised his bride with a serenade as she walked down the aisle to greet him.  After bopping around town and dodging the rain for photos we landed at Logan Auditorium for the perfect reception with tasty treats from Revolution Brewery and tunes from a few local faves.  Katie and Gabriel you guys sure know how to throw a party!!
