Aimee + Justin at Galleria Marchetti

Weddings, West Side Venues


Aimee and Justin were married in the lush outdoor space of Galleria Marchetti on a beautiful July day. Their wedding featured tones of blush, green and white, which was the perfect choice to complement the unique tented reception space in the middle of downtown Chicago. Their day was the culmination of over a year of working closely with A Fresh Event owner and lead planner Jen, who helped guide them through the process from start to finish to assemble an amazing team of vendors and create a gorgeous and worry-free wedding day. Check out some of our favorite shots captured by Spoon Photo and Design!



From the Couple

(See full review on Wedding Wire) “From the second we met with Jen, we knew she was “the one”. Hilarious, professional, friendly, and so honest! … Jen’s expertise of all things in the industry sets her apart of course, but what’s equally clear when you work with her is that this expertise is coupled by her remarkable relationships with all the vendors she works with. Everyone loves and trusts her! … During the entire planning process, not one detail was overlooked or missed. Jen was in constant communication with us and I can honestly say we truly enjoyed the wedding planning process, stress-free, all because of her.”



Reasons we Loved This Wedding

  • Jen was able to fly out to San Francisco to help the photographer Michelle with their engagement shoot around the city and out in Napa, and enjoyed a day in wine country afterwards.
  • It was truly a family affair: Aimee’s dress came from her aunt’s former dress shop, Dame Couture, and the paper products were designed by her mother’s stationery shop, Yellow Bird.
  • Aimee and Justin’s reception entrance song was one of Jen’s favorites: “This Must Be the Place” by The Talking Heads.


We loved working with Aimee and Justin and wish them a lifetime of happiness together!
