Amanda and Jason hosted their Chicago wedding at the Ravenswood Event Center. It was the perfect location for their 300+ guests & super festive Jewish wedding!
The bride rocked her fashion-forward dress with black shoulder bow. To us, it was an incredible, modern mix between Audrey Hepburn and Sex in The City. The classic black and white combination, with the stunning fit-n-flare shape, was show stopping- a statement piece that Amanda rocked (or, as we said on IG, SLAYED)!
The wedding design & decor had a Kate Spade flair – black & white with pops of vibrant, spring color. We loved all the greenery too- it looked great with the exposed brick walls and added great contrast to the black & white.
If you aren’t familiar with Ravenswood, it’s an urban, industrial loft style wedding venue with a casual, eclectic vibe. Although it would be considered an open floorplan option, they have the venue broken up into three unique spaces- which makes it great for hosting the entire wedding day’s festivities on site, while not having to host it in the same room. The couple held their ceremony in the Atrium & Loft (it has the most ah-mazing windows), which they immediately followed with a cocktail hour. The dinner & dancing in the Showroom space- which has a really cool retro, vintage vibe (it’s actually home to one of the world’s exclusive collections of vintage European & American sports cars).
For the reception, the focus was the PARTY! The couple had a diverse menu with stations, and a live band kept guests entertained all night! Everyone had a blast- including us!
