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 She wanted to  make sure that her event would never feel outdated, so we focused on a clean, crisp design with classic style hints here and there.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.

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.
