An Elegant Black and White Evening to Remember!

Ashley and Jason’s wedding last fall hit a perfect note of modern sophistication — their all-black-and-white color palette complemented the modern lines of the Loews Chicago O’Hare ballroom beautifully, accented by gorgeous, textural florals and one of our very favorite things: a neon sign with a good pun. This couple had waited a long time to finally have their big event, and it was one for the books! With a wedding party that set new records for A Fresh Event (30 people between both sides!), Ashley and Jason truly made it a celebration of not only their love, but also the communities who were a part of their story. Studio This Is was a perfect choice to capture the day, and we’re so excited to share some highlights with you here.

A Long-Awaited Day!

Ashley and Jason had made things legally official in the fall of 2020, not knowing when they would be able to host the big celebration they had always dreamed of — thankfully, by the summer of 2021 it became clear that the postponed date would be able to happen, and that’s where A Fresh Event stepped in! Rachel worked with them in the final months leading up to the event to finally get them under the chuppah surrounded by all of their friends and family, and introduced into the reception as, “For the second time, Mr. and Mrs. Sholl!”

Kind Words from the Bride

“There is not enough time in the day for me to talk about Rachel and the work she did to make my wedding absolutely perfect from start to finish…. Rachel didn’t miss a single detail. She would tell us things that never even crossed our minds and already had problems solved before they even were brought to our attention…. I even had down time built in, everything was truly planned to perfection. I could cry thinking about how incredible my wedding weekend was, and I can say confidently it wouldn’t have been that without Rachel.”
