Hello! We are back after the whirlwind that was this years Indie Wed! As you know (or can read about here) we were given an entire floor to coordinate and design! We wanted to bring the warmth and radiance of the summer sun to Chicago for the day, and that is exactly what we did! Guests got to experience a state of zen while sipping on bright libations in our mystically alluring Moroccan cabana created by Art of Imagination. Spa In Your Space provided complementary manicures and massages. Publican Quality Meats created global themed bites and Cage & Aquarium pumped in some killer tunes. Smilebooth was all the rage for folks with their gif booth & photo booth and Black Dog Gelato dished out some yummy summer time gelato! We created a lounge with luxurious furniture from Bowery and Bash, bright sunny smiley flowers from Foxglove Studio, a giant, beautiful (we wish it was our wedding cake) cake from Elysia Root Cakes.
Jayne Weddings and Events worked closely with all the vendors to keep on theme. We created custom mood boards and color palates to help everyone see our vision!
We also created a custom tablescape for our Moroccan, Cali, summer time fling! Macrame runners, fur lined benches, terracotta plates, brass and gold metal votives, teals geometric salad plates, hand cut place cards, fresh fruits and orange sodas! Chicago Farm tables provided a gorg farm style table and benches and Janelle from ReFind Joy hand lettered the mirrors (from Chicago Vintage Weddings) for us, as well as provided the flower vessels on the table. Layers of Loveliness created beautiful calligraphy place cards, as well as some other signage around the room. We topped off each plate with a super cute tiny (REAL!) gold pineapple.
Our favorite design element of the day was definitely the fun and colorful ceiling installation that we created by hand just for this space. 900 feet of tissue fringe garland!!! Can someone please let us do this at their wedding! It was so pretty and moved with the rhythm of people walking around, I can envision this at an outdoor wedding in peaches, golds and whites, blowing in the breeze, ah, so gorg!
We even created a custom backdrop for Smilebooth! Which we also had fun in! Whew, we were exhausted, but so pleased by the turn out of so many unique and in love couples!
A giant thank you to Julia Franzosa Photography for taking so many amazing pics of the floor, your use of lighting just gets us.
we also mixed in photos from Amanda Megan Miller Photography and Tuan H. Bui Photography, as well as some Insta pics. We are just so proud of this floor, we love all the different photographers takes on it, we couldn’t help ourselves!
Also a hug and a high five to Indie Wed for trusting us with the floor! It was such a blast to create something like this amongst such supportive peers!
Stay tuned for some fun DIY’s from the day to be blogged about in the coming weeks!
