A Sleek and Elegant Soiree Under the Stars

Megan and Alex’s big day finally arrived last October: after a year’s postponement, they were more than ready to celebrate with all of their nearest and dearest. We absolutely loved their ultra-modern aesthetic that brought so many thoughtful details into the event’s atmosphere. After a sunset ceremony, guests enjoyed dinner and dancing in the Rice Solarium overlooking the nighttime skyline. The bold choice to layer blacks and greys onto their tablescape helped the bright white and blush florals pop admidst beautiful tapered candlelight. Angela Renee was there to capture the day and we are so excited to share some of her work here.

Sharing the Joy!

We are pleased to share that Megan and Alex’s wedding was also featured on Chi The Wed, one of Chicago’s premier wedding publications. Take a look!

Kind Words from the Bride

“We worked primarily with Jen, but also with Andrea and Rachel, and together they have an amazing ability to get to know you as the unique beings that you are, both as a couple and individually. You never have to worry about being pressed toward traditional or stuffy elements of weddings past if you have a different vision…. At every stage, Jen asked skillful questions and listened attentively. As a result, all of her vendor recommendations felt true to our aesthetic vision and organic as personality fits…. After our event, my maid of honor texted me in shock and jealous incredulity: “How did you find all of the best vendors?!” Not only were they each very talented artists and craftspeople, but truly awesome humans… After the last of our out-of-town family left Chicago, I literally called Jen in tears to let her know she had given me and my husband one of the best gifts imaginable in our life together: a memory of overflowing joy, fun, and love that commenced our path into the future.” (Read Megan’s full review and more on The Knot)

We loved working with you, Megan and Alex! All of our best wishes for many happy years together.
