A Modern, Multicultural, Greenhouse-Inspired Holiday Weekend

On an astonishingly beautiful Memorial Day Saturday, Rosalind and Jonathan were married in the Honeycomb Pavillion in Lincoln Park, in front of a picturesque Chicago skyline and surrounded by 161 of their closest friends and family. Just as the glass broke and the crowd yelled a “Mazel Tov!,” the Great Legacy Drumline kicked into high gear, leading the group second-line-style down the boardwalk and back to the Great Hall at Café Brauer to begin an epic night of celebration. Every moment of their event was filled with delightfully thoughtful touches and surprises for their guest list, which made for an incredibly beautiful wedding that perfectly layered so many details that reflected their essence as a couple. Eric Floberg and This Charming Heart captured their day and we are so excited to share a few of our favorite moments here.

It’s All in the Details

For this wedding, we loved finding ways to bring together their respective Colombian and Jewish cultural heritages in aspects of the day on many different levels: the vendor team was able to shine with so many creative ideas on this front. For example, at dinner, their bread baskets were filled with challah and buñuelos sourced from local bakeries. The reverse side of the dinner menu explained different cultural touchstones throughout the night as well: from the hora to the hora loca, guests were able to take part in traditions that both families were eager to share with them.

Ros & Jon, we had the best time planning with you and wish you many happy years to come!
