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
