Sarah and Benny had their beautiful Artifact Events Chicago wedding on December 9th, a stunning winter day in Chicago. On their day, everything came together flawlessly – like out of a dream serious perfection! From the *perfect* amount of snow dust on the streets of Chicago, to Sarah’s impeccable off-the-shoulder lace gown (not to mention, her Valentino shoes) and to every little detail in-between; this wedding was incredible, stunning, and the word we rarely use to describe wedding days, perfect.
To start off, we need to say that the day itself WAS amazing AND that the pictures below are *just* as amazing too. We would tell you to jump ahead and scroll down right now (because you NEED to see the images!) but what fun is it not knowing some details, right? 🙂 Sarah and Benny’s photographer, Paper Antler, absolutely nailed the vision and captured the complete ambiance and essence of the big day. Every single image is incredible, and quite frankly, it was a challenge narrowing it down to just a gallery to showcase… we digress!
Sarah and Benny are both from Chicago, so when they planned their dream wedding in the City they knew how to do it big! The two celebrated their ceremony in the traditional Chicago chapel, St. Alphonsus. After the ceremony, the newlyweds pranced in the streets and soaked up the freshly snow-lined cobblestone streets. Their wedding party followed them around the City, and together, they all found a unique alley behind The Drake Hotel to take *the most gorgeous* winter wedding party pictures to date! After soaking up the afternoon, Sarah and Benny sauntered into their reception at Artifact Events and were greeted by celebratory cheers and clinking of glasses! **cue the happy tears**
Things we LOVED about Sarah and Benny’s wedding (aside from everything!) – Benny’s smile the whole entire day, the ALL WHITE Bridesmaid dresses (#bridesmaidgoals), mix-matched fur shawls, jaw-droppingly gorgeous florals and garland, the simple yet modern reception at Artifact Events (complete with ghost chairs), bistro lighting hung vertically, die-cut place cards, classic bridal look. (we can keep going….)
This wedding was modern, classic and oh-so-inspiring! The all-white color palette is one of our favorites we have seen recently – and it’s so timeless AND goes with every season too! Sarah and Benny’s perfectly-planned day concluded through the night with extremely thoughtful toasts and a packed dance floor. This Artifact Events Chicago wedding was JUST as gorgeous as it looks (scroll down for ALL the images!) We can’t wait for you to share our daydreams of this wedding. Insanely stunning and utterly perfect <3
