Jenny + Eamon | Eclectic Art Fueled Love

Jenny and Eamon are such a special couple. They met at an art school, the same one I went to actually. I met Jenny through the school and I just loved her from day one. She is exuberant, uber talented, and one of the most kind people I have ever met. I knew that Eamon and her were a match made in heaven, and I almost died when she told me about her wedding details.

EVERYTHING you are about to see was made by Jennifer’s two hands (with the help of her amazing Mother, who is also an artist)

Thank you to Brad and Jenn From Q Avenue Photography for the amazing photos!

Our favorite part, by far, was the Andy Warhol inspired balloon room, and the touch light exhibit she created to entertain her guests. The warhol-esque balloons were the shape of the Steelers logo diamonds. Eamons favorite team. She tried so hard to have items that would reflect both of their styles. Which we can totally appreciate.

Mary + Hugh | Vintage Scottish Wedding in Chicago

Jayne Weddings & Events had a blast working with this couple. They both come from creative fields, and had very good taste, which made it easy to work with them on the design of their big day. They hired us for full service coordination + event design.

We made sure to welcome them with gift bags filled with treats from Texas & Chicago, all with a Scottish twist. We also incorporated many Scottish traditions into the event. Did you know that in Scotland, the speeches are the entertainment vs. dancing being so? The speeches can be up to an hour long, and people place bets on how long they will run! Hugh taught us so much about these fun differences in traditions.

We had the music stop as the groomsmen petaled the aisle with a thick blanket of white flowers. before Mary walked down it. The silence made guest even more eager to see the Bride. Bagpipers not only welcomed guests into the venue, they also played as the couple was announced as newlyweds. The whole scene was something we are honored to be part of. 2015-11-20_00212015-11-20_00242015-11-20_00222015-11-20_0023
Hugh had custom vests made out of his families tartan fabric. Their dog Shamrock brought in the rings. Mary’s love of purple shown through in the flowers by Fleur. Her love of all things vintage and timeless was reflected in the custom invites, table numbers and place cards by Sarah Drake. Special signage was hand done by the lovely Layers of Loveliness. The dessert buffet was packed with so many different types of English desserts. The cake, had a beautiful rough icing finish by Elysia Root Cakes. The groom + groomsmen , who are in a band together overseas, reunited onstage a few special songs.2015-11-20_00252015-11-20_00262015-11-20_00272015-11-20_00282015-11-20_00292015-11-20_00302015-11-20_00312015-11-20_00322015-11-20_00332015-11-20_00342015-11-20_0035 This whole event was filled with thoughtful details and a lot of love.

Marian + Sig | Classic French Country Wedding in Chicago

We are thrilled to be sharing with you this beautiful wedding from the early summer. Marian + Sig came to use to help them put their ideas in motion. He is an architect and she is a graphic designer/creative director, so it was freaking fantastic/dreamy/amazing getting to collaborate with them both on the look and feel of their wedding! They hired Jayne Weddings for event design and full service coordination.

We loved the raw unfinished look of the cakes by Broken Tart, and the romantic vintage plates from Plate. We were absolutely obsessed with Sig’s navy tux and the flower girls (they are adorable, their hair, their dresses, just them in general, too cute)! Everything about this wedding was just so pretty! But we feel the show stopper of it all was the over 100 paper lantern ceiling installation we designed and installed (with some extra labor) for the happy couple! The lanterns added just the right warm inviting touch, to one of the city’s cutest venues!

Check it out!

Thank you to Artisan Events for the killer photos!

Kristy + Chris | Vibrant Art Gallery Wedding

View More: http://jennography.pass.us/krandchwed

This couple came to us with visions of sweet pastels and clean bright whites. It was their fiery pops of hot pink that let us know this was a match made in heaven! We were thrilled when they hired Jayne Weddings & Events for full event design and coordination.

Kristy chose her dress while on a “just for fun” trip to a bridal store in Atlanta with her sister. It was the first wedding dress she has ever put on, and she just knew it would be flying back to Chicago with her. Chris took it upon himself to add all the extra details to his custom suit. We love that he added the monogram of his wedding date!

The walls of the ceremony/reception space were adorn with abstract art from the Zhou B. gallery. We loved how this wild art looked juxtaposed with the very bridal look everywhere else. Guests tossed heart shaped confetti as the couple were announced husband and wife. We brought in market lighting to warm up the large art gallery.

The cocktail hour was so much fun! We tied the cocktail tables with handmade tassels, hung hot pink cardboard chandeliers and had old Hollywood movies projecting on the wall! We created a 10 foot wide wall of hanging heart garland and added different types of crystal and gem votives to add a sense of sparkle to the room. We also created some hand lettered  signage to help direct guests throughout the day.

For the reception, guests were directed to the tables with their escort card frames, made in joint effort by the bride’s mother and mother in law. Both mom’s helped out so much with little DIY projects, it was so sweet to see all their hard work come together. Different lush high and low centerpieces by Life In Bloom, made the room feel romantic. The tables had custom menus with a black backing set on top of a pale pink napkin, it was a stunning and very chic look!

Besides the warm intimate lighting, we were totally obsessed with their cake from Elysia Root Cakes! The little florets on the top and bottom tier were so perfect mixed with the simple middle layers. The wood cake topper was the perfect finishing touch!

Kristine + Eric | Timeless & Lush Chicago Wedding

When we met Kristine + Eric we were floating on cloud nine. This couple is SO in love, it was intoxicating to be around! You can totally feel their joy in these photos. Working with couples like this is why we what we do, and they were such a happy reminder of that!

Kristine knew that she wanted something timeless and classic. She also wanted to create something that was intimate and approachable. She chose to hire Jayne Wedding and Events for event design as well as coordination. She wanted to  make sure that her event would never feel outdated, so we focused on a clean, crisp design with classic style hints here and there.

This couple also really cared about their guests being treated to a special day. So we added a special tea station because it’s Eric’s father’s favorite and made sure that the band would play certain songs to appease her sorority sisters. This couple was very accommodating to all of their guests wants and needs.

2015-07-20_0010 2015-07-20_0009For the look of the event, Jayne Weddings and Events came up with a simple but chic white and and gold color palette. Working with Kristine we decided to add in lush greens by way of garlands and monochromatic centerpieces created by Fleur.

The ceremony set up was one of our favorites. Green garlands lined the aisle, while large puffs of babies breath anchored it. The most lovely chandeliers hovered above.  The vintage ladder and candle backdrop from Aged Vintage Rentals, set the tone for the couple to exchange their handwritten vows. Kristine was stunning in her gown and Eric looked dapper in his navy suit. It was raining lightly during their ceremony, and the overcast sky made the room feel even more romantic.

Light blue pin-striped napkins gave the tables a subtle hint of color, and many candles made the room feel warm and inviting. Crystal Chandeliers hanging overhead made the whole room sparkle! Layers of Loveliness added the finishing touch with her beautiful calligraphy gracing the place cards, invites, and various signage. SMPSUBMIT_jayneweddingskeweddingamandameganmiller2772015-07-23_00222015-07-23_0023  2015-07-23_0009 2015-07-23_0010 2015-07-23_0011 2015-07-23_0012 2015-07-23_0013 2015-07-23_0014 2015-07-23_0015 2015-07-23_0016Guests had so much fun in the newly remodeled Ivy Room.

Safari Themed Shoot

About little bit ago Team Jayne put together this amazing Safari themed shoot! We love the all the rich textures and neutral colors! Taya (our resident interior designer by day, killer wedding stylist/coordinator by night) worked really hard on this shoot, and it totally shows. I mean, check out that hand made gold 3-d geometric wall! WHAT! Megan Saul Photography provided the gorgeous moody photography, while Elysia Root Cakes thru down with a custom black and gold cake! The flowers were off the charts bold by Field and Florist! But our personal favorite is a total tie between Veronica Sheaffer’s lovely gowns and Sarah Drake’s custom shibori invites.

Welcome Rachel ! | 2015 Intership Program

We are so thrilled to again be adding to the Jayne Weddings team! With Samantha stepping up from intern to assistant coordinator shortly, we had room to add another talented young lady to the bunch! This lovely has a background in florals and an eye for design. On her first day with us she killed some custom table ties and hung chandeliers like a champ. We can not wait to see what else she creates this summer!

Welcome Rachel!
