Chic Wedding at Chicago Illuminating Company

When we think of an ideal summer wedding day, this day was it! 

Jenni and John had a stunning and chic wedding held at Chicago Illuminating Company. It was important to Jenni that timeless white details remained a constant throughout the design, but equally important to incorporate and impactful bright green to balance the pallette. 

We chose to work with collaborative vendors who really helped us bring Jenni’s vision to life.

Bryn, from Limelight Catering brought the unbeatable food and beverages, Life in Bloom created stunning one of a kind decor and Beat Mix Music’s Becca Kaufman Orchestra kept the couple and their guests on the dance floor all night long and Nicole from Storybook Weddings and Events was their Chicago Wedding Planner
