When I met Elizabeth and David in January 2012, we hit it off right away and I was thrilled when they asked me to help plan their November 2012 wedding at The Ivy Room (literally the day before I left for a 10-day trip to Taiwan!). Elizabeth was incredibly sweet and a dream to work with. She had impeccable taste and knew what she wanted so she didn't waver in her decisions... which made it so easy on her wedding planner :) We put together a dream team of vendors which included photography by Averyhouse, decor and floral by The Flower Firm, and Limelight Catering just to name a few.
Classic and simple invitations by Vera Wang Collection.
Their first look was at Park Hyatt Chicago, where they got ready.
Elizabeth literally *gasped* when she saw her gorgeous bouquet by The Flower Firm!
They wanted very "urban" and "gritty" photos... and this is about as urban as it gets!
A photo fitting of The Ivy Room!
A dramatic submerged escort card arrangement in jewel tones of deep reds, purples and greens.
The Flower Firm custom-built this seven layer chuppah especially for Elizabeth and David. (It took hours to put up... and then just minutes to tear down!)
Stay tuned for Part 2 next week!
