Wedding planning can be a daunting task. And some couples feel frazzled in the beginning because they aren’t sure where to start (that is where we come in). But some couples are so organized and certain, that it makes our job a breeze. Natassia and Jim are (and were) that couple! They recognized that the wedding day was about them, and nobody else. They focused on making the day easy and tranquil, personal, touching and intimate. And they achieved that in spades!
Natassia & Jim’s venue, A New Leaf in Chicago was everything! The atmosphere is seriously amazing. If you’re a lover of flowers and locations with lots of character, THIS is your space. They have the most amazing brick walls, wood flooring, ceilings and FLOWERS everywhere! We wish we could adequately describe the space in words- but it’s really a must see to believe. They have these adorable nooks and crannies that just add the coolest element of surprise. You can tuck the cutest little details in the space. We love that both the ceremony and reception can be hosted in this venue, while still keeping separation (which means less hectic set-up and a better flow for your guests).
We knew Natassia had a knack for planning and were SO excited to have her join our team recently as an assistant planner!
