Jamie & Elaine’s Intercontinental O’hare Wedding

 

Elaine & Jamie came to me last January and requested a summer wedding… so I’m excited to share the wedding we planned for them in about 5.5 months! They live out in the suburbs, so the Intercontinental O’Hare (which is now the Loew’s Chicago O’Hare Hotel) was the perfect fit for the modern, elegant wedding they envisioned. Lovely photos by Fragola Productions.

Gorgeous florals by the talented team at Vale of Enna! Love the dramatic Manzanita arrangement,
dripping with crystals, and anchored with vibrant, jewel-toned florals.

Yay, more stunning photos from Sara & Mark’s wedding at Room 1520! Last week we left off with their beautiful wedding party photos around the city… and here we are at their ceremony + reception! Vale of Enna’s amazing floral work never disappoints, and brought oodles of vibrant colors to the wedding. This escort card arrangement with coral charm peonies, mokara orchids, spray roses, protea, and branch accent was the perfect way to welcome guests.

Sara & Mark’s Room 1520 Wedding – Part 1

We have some catching up to do with posting our 2014 weddings, but they’re so pretty, we just have to share! I love it when our couples embrace color! Sara and Mark envisioned a vibrant wedding in hues of coral, bright pink, and orange, in their beautifully neutral wedding venue, Room 1520. Gorgeous photos by Studio Finch. I love the coral and orange wedding invitations they chose via Minted.

It’s awesome when grooms have some fun with their attire, even with a small detail such as their SOCKS!
