Chicago Wedding Planner | River Roast Social House, Marla & Nicole

Marla and Nicole's River Roast Social House wedding was AH-MAZING! This couple is a BLAST and had an epic wedding weekend. Their Jewish ceremony and reception was full of laughter, overwhelmingly emotional moments and a celebration of not only their official nuptial union, but a win for the Chicago Cubs too! 

We love how close these ladies are with their mothers. It was such a huge part of the day- from the first look to the walk down the aisle, they really made an effort to involve their Mamas! Jewish weddings are family affairs, to begin with, but the ladies really did make it extra special. It was hard not to be touched!

One of the best parts about having two brides is double the bouquets! Ha! Both bouquets were created with purple-hued florals with pops of green- including orchids, mums, dahlias, carnations, daisies. lisianthus, greenery and wrapped in a bad-ass bandana. 

The reception was ALL about the lighting- from the candlelight at every table to the purple lighting, the ambiance was moody romantic.  Seeing Marla and Nicole's reactions when they got a peek at the reception venue before everyone else made our night complete! They were surprised, elated and giddy!
