Hitched: Nik & Sheila’s Chicago Illuminating Company Wedding – Part 1

When Sheila and Nik chose to work with Jessica of Sweetchic Events to coordinate their wedding last August, we were thrilled! Their urban, dramatic, bold, and very contemporary vision excited our imaginations and the end result was beyond gorgeous. Clearly, we’re not the only ones who thought so – their wedding was recently featured on Style Me Pretty!

Sheila and Nik based their wedding vision on some classic Japanese Hiroshige art prints, and brought the vibrant colors of royal blue, chartreuse green, and red into various aspects of their decor. They incorporated numerous personal touches and painstakingly hand-made all of their details to transform their blank slate venue, The Chicago Illuminating Company, into the wedding of their dreams. We were so thrilled to be a part of it! And thank you David Wittig Photography for sharing these gorgeous images with us!

Sheila was an absolutely stunning bride!

In her mermaid style Angel Sanchez gown, Sheila said she felt like a “modern day princess”…
We couldn’t agree more!

Sheila & Nik headed to one of Sweetchic’s favorite photo spots, Milton Olive Park, for some pre-wedding photos with their bridal party.

Loved the combination of the royal blue bridesmaids dresses and the chartreuse bouquets!

Scarlet Petal did a gorgeous job with their florals! Especially loved the green trick, berries, green hydrangea and green roses in the bridesmaids bouquets!

Have you ever seen a blue aisle runner at a wedding ceremony? This was a first for us… but we absolutely LOVED it! It was the perfect compliment to their theme and decor!

Sheila’s walked down the aisle with both of her parents (my favorite!) and her mom wore a traditional Korean Hanbok.
