Craig + Libby's WES ANDERSON INSPIRED Wedding

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! 


Christine Luby (living in CA) and Nick Shalek (living in NY) were married smack dab in the middle at Salvage One in west Chicago on Valentine's Day. The couple charmingly dubbed it "Vowentine’s Day," which played beautifully into their festive decor. This wedding was one for the books; rockin' tunes with the Larry King Orchestra, fab cuisine from Blue Plate Catering, and the fanciest floral by The Flower Firm. Christine, co-founder of Pinrose perfumes, launched a personal perfume called "Lovebug" on her wedding day and gifted each guest a luxury candle with the signature scent. The couple wanted to sprinkle in some of their fun-loving personalities so we added an original neon heart and an outdoor photo shoot with serape blankets :). It was a true pleasure being a part of this memorable weekend with Nick, Christine and their families, and we wish them a happy anniversary and many more to come!
