Ok, I need to take a deep breath before I try and explain all that was major about this wedding.
This wedding, gets me choked up just thinking about it. Andrea came to Jayne Weddings and Events, a Chicago wedding planning and event design company, with grand ideas and many pinboards. She told us about her dream day. Every word, every pin, every idea, was filled with so much love and care, we were more then thrilled to make it all happen for her!
We were lucky enough to start with a gorg space, Osthoff Lake! If you havent been, go, its a very special place. A lovely spot to host a wedding and their onsite florist was crazy good! She made this think for the programs that brought me to my knees!
Holding a ceremony in a space The Ostoff needed little decor. Jayne Weddings and Events created small stings of pompoms to hang down the asile and chairs, adding a bit of whimsy to the day. The bride created hand sewn programs, thats right, she printed, cut and sewed those babies by hand!
We were also blessed to be able to work with Aged Vintage Rentals on a few focal vignettes as well as the largest dessert bar ever! The chocolates where provided by Erics parents, they own Schakolad! Its like the best chocolate I have ever had, ever! Seriously, it’s legit, actually I should go order some now…the vintage themed display sat against one of our handmade backdrops. This one in pastel pinks and lace!
Every corner of this event was filled with love, laughter, and details! Seriously, it was like living in the most well curated pin-board ever. There was cornhole, and chalkboards, candlelight signs, and shutters filled with placecards! And the Photographers, oh my gosh, the McCartneys! I could write a whole different blog post about how awesome this husband and wife duo were. So awesome in fact, that I had a hard time cutting this blog down to fit!
Now, grab a cup of something warm, sit back, and check it all out!
