September Inspiration- Feathers For Fall

Happy fall! We thought an inspiration post was in order for the 1st day of autumn. Feather details were one of our favorite trends from the fashion week runways and we love them subtly incorporated into a wedding-scape.

Ashley and Chris

Black and White: From the silk getting ready robes, to the backless bridesmaids gowns, to those classic tuxes with perfect bow ties, this group worked the timeless color combination perfectly.

“I do!” Dilly Lily created a gorgeous ceremony arch adorned with soft ivory fabric, lush neutral florals, and endless hanging ribbons. Our favorite was the one covered in subtle script “I do’s”

Deco Dessert: One of the stand out details from the evening was certainly Ashley and Chris’ wedding cake – the art deco inspired design was the perfect complement to their elegant décor.

Summer Rosé

Nothing says “summer soirée” quite like a glass of rosé and the blush and berry hues are the perfect inspiration for a summer wedding.

Kathryn and Kevin

Monograms: Kathryn used her new monogram in so many creative ways – our favorites are the custom robes for getting ready and the something blue stitched under the skirt of her gown.

Custom Cordial: The bright pink hue and fruity flavors of this Prickly Pear Margarita make it the perfect signature summer cocktail.

 City Streets: In lieu of traditional table numbers, Kathryn and Kevin used Chicago street names as a nod to their favorite city!

Morgan and Derek

Succulent Style: Cornelia McNamara designed an elegant mix of white and green floral which included succulents for Morgan’s bouquet and centerpieces.Legacy of Love: We could tell right away that Morgan had a special relationship with her grandmother Rhoda. She was close by from getting ready through the reception and always smiling.

There in Spirit: Morgan kept the memory of her paternal grandmother close by wearing her beautiful vintage ring studded with diamonds and sapphires. A perfect “something blue.”

Unique Spin: Morgan, Derek and a few choice guests debuted their DJing skills for a couple songs during the reception.
