Alhambra Hall Bride and Groom Portrait

Meredith and Drew met through their volunteer work at Imerman Angels – a Chicago based charity that connects cancer survivors with cancer fighters all over the world. It was founded by Drew’s cousin, a two time cancer survivor who served as the couple’s officiant. Meredith had thyroid cancer when she was 23. When she relocated to Chicago and heard about this charity, she immediately got involved. Eventually both Meredith and Drew were on the charity board together and after board meetings, the group would go out for drinks. The pair were always the last two standing. One thing led to another and about 8 months after they first met, they started dating.

One night, after the pair had a nice seafood dinner and cozied up on the couch for a movie, Meredith mentioned how it was a perfect Friday and she was happy to be home with relaxing with him. Drew left the room, came back, and proposed with his grandmother’s engagement ring. Meredith was in a state of disbelief. She said, “Even after I opened the box I had no idea what was going on. Drew told me that he wanted to spend every Friday night with me and asked me to marry him.” Originally Drew had no intentions of proposing that night but said that he felt it was the perfect moment to do so.

The couple wanted their wedding to be fun and relaxed. They decided on a backyard BBQ theme that included a pig roast, cornhole, and oyster roast. They chose some of their favorite colors for the wedding – orange, navy blue, and teal. A perfect fall palette to adorn Alhambra Hall. Meredith and Drew also included their favorite canine in the festivities – their adorable dog Artie. After exchanging vows waterside on the back lawn of Alhambra Hall, the couple joined loved ones for a classic bbq spread by Crazy Dutchman Catering. Following dinner, DJ Beats Bailey’s playlist got everyone on the dance floor to close out the last hours of the celebration.

Champagne Bridal Gown

Lauren and Josh’s destination wedding at the Legare Waring House features intimate touches with a vibrant color palette of purple and orange. Lauren had custom handkerchiefs made for her parents, each with its own unique message. Her elegant yet whimsical oatmeal blush cascading  gown is designed by Watters. She paired the airiness of of her dress with stunning sequined plum heels. The ladies carried handcrafted bouquets by Wildflowers, INC. Bridesmaids toted a mix of soft hued roses while Lauren’s bridal bouquet was an arrangement of purple calla lilies.

Lauren added a twist to seeing Josh before the ceremony. She requested a surprise first look – where the groom is unaware that he is going to see his bride. Josh was taken to the wedding garden for his portraits, and Lauren quietly snuck up behind him and tapped him on the shoulder. Their reactions and loving embrace were amazing moments to witness. The pair braved rain drizzle and cold for outdoor portraits before marrying in front of the avenue of oaks. After their nuptials, they celebrated with their guests on the back patio. Stephen of EPIC provided an eclectic mix of music from country to pop. After a lowcountry meal served by Cafe Catering, Lauren and Josh cut a one-tiered white rosettes cake and shared delicious cupcakes all created by the Cake Stand. The ladies of Fabulous Fete designed a chic fall event and quickly adapted to changing weather conditions by adding heaters and handing out plum colored blankets to guests. Most wedding days do not go as planned, but they do go just right. Lauren and Josh’s wedding proves that.

Legare Waring House Wedding PortraitsKelly and Chris’s wedding at the Legare Waring House highlights a fusion of their style. Kelly is drawn to soft pastels and whimsical design while Chris likes rustic elements. With this inspiration, Christina of Cibi Events created a unique design that included family style wooden tables, chandeliers, an eclectic spread of floral arrangements, and Edison bulbs. Tabletop centerpieces featured a mix of textures utilizing wooden boxes and mercury glass. Of course the natural surroundings at the Legare Waring House of mossy oak trees and a historic mansion contributed to the romantic whimsical feel. Kelly’s bouquet and some elements of the centerpieces incorporate one of my favorite flowers – Cafe au Lait Dahlias. Congratulations to Kelly and Chris!
