Chez Wedding Pop-up Recap

We were so thrilled when our friends at Art of Imagination asked us to partner with them on their vignette for the second annual Chez Wedding Pop Up! In case you're not familiar, Chez is one of the most unique, contemporary loft spaces in downtown Chicago, located in Streeterville. A perfect blank canvas with 17' ceilings and white spaces for you to create any type of look you envision! This is the second year that Chez hosted a Wedding "Pop Up" to feature their beautiful venue space, and also to highlight some of their favorite wedding vendors.

For our vignette, Deborah from Art of Imagination envisioned bringing an enchanted garden indoors. This gorgeous trellis featured curly willow and trailing smilax to create a dramatic arbor, complete with a large wrought iron chandelier. It can be used as a ceremony altar, and then after the ceremony is over, the Sweetheart or Head table can be placed underneath as a focal point for the wedding reception.  

We designed the Sweetheart table that we placed underneath the chandelier, and dressed the table with BBJ's gorgeous Copper Allure linens and Wineberry Bengaline napkins. A base marble charger, topped with a gold rimmed glass charger, and rose gold flatware from Tablescapes. Gold rimmed wine glasses, gold mercury glass votives, slender black lanterns, and trailing greenery and white flowers completed the dramatic look! Delicate cake "gems" by Altissima Cake were the favors on the table.
