WEDDING STYLE: JENNIFER & JOE



Joe hung the moon for his true love Jen...literally. Winter weddings don't get more wonderful.



Bridal bouquets ready for their closeup, inside the Chicago Athletic Association.



Cutest!



Bridal beauty by Kate Johnson Artistry and team - don't throw a wedding without them.



All the lovely lace and layers...



Jen wore the season's hottest wedding dress trend: lace. Accents of winter white hydrangea roses, berry and eucalyptus created a beautiful bouquet.



Jen prepped inside Chicago Athletic Association - one of Chicago's most elegant hotels. The building dates to 1893 and was inspired by the Doges Palace in Venice.



Joe, a scotch whiskey lover, lined up his finest and favorites for groomsmen prep, wedding reception, and late night after party madness.




There is nothing quite so romantic as the bride and groom's first look...especially in Millenium Park, on a gorgeous, sunny, warm December day!



We're gaga for Jen's ivory fur wrap - adding the perfect hint of cozy glam to a something new accessory.


The first look was magical - the park is just across from Chicago Athletic Association.




Such a gorgeous, happy bridal party. And those winter wraps...we love.




Another iconic Chicago backdrop - no matter the weather - Union Station's columned portico. The 1925 Beaux-Arts style train station was widely celebrated when it opened in May of 1925, with its magnificent, massive columns both outside and inside.




These two - and their besties. We just can't say enough about their joy, kindness and friendship.




Sparkling Old St Patrick's Church, the oldest public building in the city of Chicago, and one of the few buildings to survive the Chicago Fire of 1871. It was the first English-speaking parish in the city.

Inspired by the Celtic art exhibit at the Columbian Expostition of 1893 the architecture features 27 beautiful stained-glass windows - 12 of which are inspired by Ireland’s Book of Kells.




Hello wedding party!



And they're off to celebrate...




Jen and Joe chose Adler Planetarium for the wedding reception, and a palette of blue, white and silver to continue the wedding party palette into the evening.



Starry starry night skies were designed for stationery from save the dates to tablenumbers.



We hung the moon in the dining room and cocktail theater, as well as dozens of suspended golden orbs above guest tables and dance floor.





Adler, you are an icon. Such a treat to work inside your stunning space once again.



Jen and Joe, we love you. And we miss you already. Thank you for celebrating with us.
