Pantone announced this “captivating, magical, enigmatic purple” as the color of the year today. We love that the bright hue flatters every skin tone and works in every season. Pantone suggests paring will olive tones for a fall palette and accenting with turquoise for a fresh take on summer. We can wait to see what you come up with!
Chandeliers and Chiffon: Jessica at HMR designed waves of chiffon above the ceremony aisle, paired with delicate crystal chandeliers and a stunning entrance drape to create an intimate indoor setting for the ceremony.
Darling Details: We can’t pick a favorite! Custom chalkboard menus, delicate bird shaped place cards, the perfectly styled water station, lace patterned chargers… we could go on and on!
Say Cheese! : BOKA Catering set an elegant cheese and bread display on marble boards for the cocktail hour.

Music Man: Ryan hand picked almost all of the music for their wedding. They also gifted guests with a CD of their favorite tunes.
Motherly Love: One of our favorite parts of this evening was witnessing Lauren and Ryan with their mothers. From getting ready, to walking down the aisle, to toasts and dancing – it’s obvious how loved and supported they both are by these special women.
Poppy and Periwinkle: Two perfectly complimentary accent colors for a July soiree! Our favorite touches were Lauren’s nails and Ryan’s socks.
Romantic Rain: A little rain in the late evening resulted in some gorgeous shots of Lauren and Ryan under an umbrella in the courtyard and on the streets of Chicago (thanks Chad!)
