Jen & Eric's Rookery Wedding - Part 1

Here at Sweetchic, we are always thrilled when we get to coordinate a wedding at the Rookery! Our Associate, Lindsey, had the pleasure of sending Jen and Eric down the aisle this past June with the help of a stellar team of vendors. Eric and Jen wanted a romantic and soft wedding in shades of pinks, ivories and metallics, and we achieved just that! Jen flew her friend and photographer, Kevin Le of Kevin Le Photography, to Chicago to document their day and the resulting photos are simply beautiful!

Jen and her bridesmaids got ready at the elegant JW Marriott, which is conveniently across the street from the Rookery.

Makeup artist, Grace Lin, came all the way from southern California to transform Jen and her bridesmaids!

I'm in love with this shot of Jen... the lighting, the pose, the Rookery building in the background. Perfection!

Beautiful bouquets in soft pinks and ivory by Vale of Enna.

First Look on the second floor of the JW Marriott; Eric anxiously awaits his bride.

The classic wedding party shot in front of the Federal Reserve Building.

Sweet pomanders with pink spray roses hung from the gold chiavari chairs.

A dramatic floral arrangement in a tall gold vessel welcomed guests to the Rookery.

Cute postcards for guests to fill out for Jen & Eric... "A recipe for a happy marriage..."

Jen's trip down the aisle included a long walk down the dramatic staircase, dotted with gold mercury glass votives.

Stay tuned for Part 2!
