Talk about out of this world! Emily and John are so in love and everyone could see it right on their beaming faces. I think when two people really "find each other", something extraordinary is birthed. In their case? A secret garden with the most magical work by Bunches Floral. Everyone gathered at Salvage One and love and romance truly were in the air. Thankfully Blue Plate Catering and Sweet Mandy B's showed up to more than satisfy a hungry crowd; And Chicago Catz Entertainment and Simple Booth came to entertain - and did not disappoint! Oh, I forgot to mention. To honor John's side of the family, there was Chinese take-out as second-course meal! How cool is that? The whole event was a vintage fairytale. I consider myself lucky to call this "work" because at the end of the day, I get to participate in life-altering moments. Emily and John, your day was the dreamiest.
I knew immediately after meeting Craig + Libby that we would be good friends; they are awesome, creative, sweet souls and they're funny as can be. Craig totally ADORES Libby and It's the sweetest damn thing ever (see for yourself below)!
Libby's roots are from Texas and Craig comes from Chicago, the universe brought them together while doing comedy in LA (although the both went to Columbia College in Chicago at the same time!). They wanted a wedding that felt like them with a nod to their hometowns and a little Wes Anderson flair. The day was packed with fun details and filled with joy and laughter. Matt Bigelow photographed the event like a pro, they had the best food in town by Blueplate Catering and all the grooviest tunes from Edwin at Style Matters DJs. Craig and Libby trusted me to enlist the creative help of my super talented family (!!!) with graphic design, signage, floral (Root 31) and propping, making the wedding design one for the books!
Creating a day that captured their love story was truly special for me- I could just burst thinking about it! Craig and Libby- you guys are the bomb and I loved reliving your day. Cheers to you and all the love you have, I wish you the very best! XOXO!
