Jayne Weddings & Events met with Michelle and Brandon and instantly fell in love with this couple. You could feel the love between them, it was magnetic. Michelle wanted something part industrial, part bohemian. Pops of bold reds, soft metallic, sweet pinks and lots of white.
It was a very warm day in Chicago, and just as the event was about to start a major rain storm rolled in. For most, this would have been a terrible thing, but we never saw Michelle or Brandon stop smiling. As the bride walked down the candle lined aisle with her father, the rain pinged on the tin roof, setting the most intimate stage. The ceremony was set within many warm pillar candles against a neutral fabric backdrop made by the bride. The couple exchanged vowels while standing an Aztec print carpet. It all was just so perfect!
For the reception, baby cacti and desert flowers were mixed with garden roses on all the cocktail tables. There were a plethora of tasty cakes, mexican wedding cookies, here was even a margarita bar! Guest nibbled on Big Star tacos and empanadas.
Michelle who dabbles in graphic design made all the signage and menus, while Brandon, a DJ, played the greatest dance music. The ceremony space was flipped into a dance floor during cocktail hour, complete with some surprise giant balloons! Guest mingled, danced and ate their way into the night.
