Chicago Wedding Planner | Germania Place Wedding, Sara & Bria

The Germania Place is a great wedding venue- and we were really excited to hear that Sara & Brian selected it as their ceremony and reception location! It was a great choice for their Jewish wedding and worked really well for their classic, timeless color selection of black and white (with just a hint of a burgundy wine & deep fuchsia hue). 

Sara's dress was AH-mazing. The skirt of the dress was so stunning and detailed. It was really unique and not something just any bride could pull off. But she could and it was incredibly flattering and beautiful. 

We loved working with Ed & Aileen - they did a great job capturing the couple. AEG did a phenomenal job with the floral & decor (as always). The florals blew us away - the high & low combination was a fantastic choice and the floral combos were creative, bold and breathtaking! If you didn't already know, we're all suckers for peonies. So anytime wedding florals have peonies, we're instantly in deep love! Ha!   The Chicago Players really kept the party going too. The entire guest list was on the dance floor at least once. It was a great night!

Milwaukee Wedding Planner | The Best Place at the Historic Pabst Brewery, Sarah & Paul

Sarah & Paul's was a super fun, laid-back celebration. The couple had a traditional Christian church ceremony, with a reception following at The Best Place at the Historic Pabst Brewery

Sarah pulled off the two-dress look with a removable gorgeous tulle ballgown skirt. For the ceremony, she sported the skirt over her fit n' flare beaded gown, tying it together with a rhinestone belt. The bodice of her dress was incredible- the rhinestone and lace appliques were exquisite. Her bridesmaids' dresses were also fabulous. Each was a floor-length dusty pink, but the patterns were unique to each maid. Some were soft chiffon, while others were sequin or lace. The entire combination made for one of our favorite bridal party ensembles of the year! 

Although a cold, windy, cloudy day would be most couple's worst nightmare, this duo didn't let that stop them from celebrating what their wedding was all about. LOVE & laughter!

The Pabst Brewery was a great space for this casual couple. The beer theme was tied into the seating arrangements & everyone was gifted with a too cool for school prop- shades! Which kept things lively in the photo booth! 

For decor, they had rose + babies breath wreaths at the base of large glass candle holders. The cake was a masterpiece of pink, white and gold frosting. The floral detailing on the bottom tier was beautiful and the gold glitter ribbon garnish was sophisticated, feminine glamor!

After a fun-filled grand entrance, the couple shared a first dance to "Die A Happy Man" by Thomas Rhett.  

We wish this couple ALL the best in their new journey as husband and wife! Be sure to stop our Instagram to see more of our favorite images of the day!

Chicago Wedding Planner | Intercontinental Chicago Indian Wedding, Poonman & Shardul's

The two things that stick out to us most about Poonman & Shardul is how family-oriented and super sweet they are. This couple compliments one another so well, and they're incredibly thoughtful. They obviously share a tender love!

Although Indian weddings are often family affairs, it never ceases to amaze us how much importance and emphasis is placed on the family unit. It's so refreshing and wonderful to witness and be part of! 

They had some seriously striking decor. The InterContinental Chicago is a stunning venue as is, but with Poonman & Shardul's decor, it went from amazing to over the top wow-worthy. The opulent romance was show-stopping! And the party. Oh my gosh, the party! It was awesome in every way. So much high energy and celebration, laughter and love. Everything you could want from your wedding day, they had! 

It was a pleasure and joy!
