Bouquet Catcher – July 21st, 2014

“The couple settled on a summer wedding with an art deco twist, enlisting Stemline Creative to bring in seasonal flowers like hydrangeas, roses and lilies to go with their light, fresh color palette. Following a traditional Catholic ceremony at St. Clement, the party moved over to Salvatore’s to celebrate.”

“Local to Elisabeth’s childhood home, Salvatore’s Ristorante served as the perfect venue for the couple’s friends and family. Between heartfelt speeches and a special serenade, guests sipped manhattans and enjoyed amazing fare. The night ended with everyone dancing and singing along to the music. The couple remembers, “The day was truly a whirlwind and couldn’t have been more perfect!”

“Toni and Jack’s Chicago wedding couldn’t have been any better if I had dreamed it myself. There are no words to perfectly describe it. We started with getting ready shots at Jack’s condo, where our beautiful bride was getting ready. After then circling Lincoln Park for 30 minutes for parking (and that’s not bad for Chicago!), we headed into Hotel Lincoln for their first look, where Jack was eagerly waiting for his soon-to-be wife. This hotel can definitely fool you by it’s old exterior. Inside the lobby, it is perfectly modern, bright and colorful. The next part will make your jaws drop. I can tell you that Jack and Toni will be the first EVER couple you will see at the Hotel Lincoln rooftop — it had never been accessed by the public! The wonderful management agreed to letting us take photos up top the brand spankin’ new rooftop, which would have its grand opening just MINUTES after we were through! Total VIP style. The views were breathtaking! We were overlooking the entire Lincoln Park Zoo, Lake Michigan and the famous Chicago skyline. It doesn’t get any better, except that everything was furnished to the nine’s with brand new, modern everything! Even fireplace-like tables in the seating nooks! As if that wasn’t beautiful enough, we headed out to Lincoln Park Zoo for a few more shots…
(yes this is ALL during their first look photo session!)
Following the couple’s photo session, we headed to their ceremony at the beautiful St Clement’s (check out the gorgeous cathedral ceiling!). Toni’s two adorable sons were their ring bearers, perfectly “GQ” in their little tuxedos. They even stood with the couple during their I do’s — it was too cute! Following the nuptials, we walked the two blocks over, snapping photos along the way, to their reception at the famous Salvatore’s. Talk about another gorgeous venue! Candelit, romantic and sure to make you swoon. After a true Italian-style dinner, they shared their first dances and concluded with a special dance with Toni and her sons. It was such a wonderful day!”

“Mike and Jackie formed a strong bond as high school freshmen, never anticipating that years later they would turn their friendship into something more. After a year and a half of long-distance dating as adults, Mike proposed while Jackie was visiting him in New York. Jackie remembered, “I’m not even sure I heard Mike ask me to marry him, but the word ‘absolutely’ immediately jumped from my lips”

“I know I’m not alone in my binge-watching of Orange is the New Black. It’s an addiction I happily embrace and now, my weekend activities are becoming a workday reality with this gorgeous Chicago wedding of our favorite prison guard, Susan Fischer. Squeals were most certainly heard ’round the office when we laid eyes on this gem. It’s wildly gorgeous, all captured by Katie Kett Photography with the prettiest romantic florals by A Stem Above and a day that is the epitome of classic romance.”
