“Quand il me prend dans les bras, Il me parle tout bas, Je vois la vie en rose.” – Édith Piaf
This parisian styled wedding was something of true bliss. Filled with eclectic décor, sparkling gold and a hint of soft mint; it has to be one of my favorite styled weddings yet!
RM Champagne Salon was the perfect setting for this romantic intimate wedding. Tucked away off Green Street, it has to be one of Chicago’s best hidden secrets. With a fireplace to set the tone, it had a cozy feel the moment you walk in. Two Sister Events styled the room and we couldn’t of asked for anything better! From the sweetheart table to the dessert table it was full of regal elegance. If you are looking for someone to take your wedding to the next level, I would highly recommend Elyse and Betsy! The florals were designed by Sheila from Ipomea Floral Design and let me tell you she knows her flowers. Sheila created a series of stunning bouquets that were uniquely customized for our shoot. Again to all my future brides you can’t ask to work with better vendors, these lovely ladies are fantastic at what they do!
Our bride wore a Theia couture gown which was hand selected from Rent the Runway. Rent the Runway has an amazing selection of dresses that are perfect for bridesmaids, rehearsal dinners and of course can be used for your wedding dress. Her hair and makeup was styled by Samara and Krysten from Bridal Beauty Chicago. They did an amazing job giving her look a soft and whimsical feel. To finish her look she wore a handmade headpiece designed by Tania at Percy Handmade. Each handmade piece tells a story and Percy Handmade is full of heirloom quality pieces that you will cherish for years to come.
The engagement ring and men’s wedding band was provided by Oliverio Jewelers. Both rings were stunning and truly unique.
Our groom wore a dashing black tuxedo from Formally Modern. Donnie at Formally Modern was fantastic to work with and made finding the perfect fit a breeze. To finish his look our groom wore a gold satin bow tie from The Tie Bar. The Tie Bar is the perfect place to find an endless array of unique quality ties for any occasion.
The invitations suite was designed and made by Lindsey Kay Design. She did a wonderful job incorporating those gold touches and has an excellent eye for design. Luscious Layers Bakery created the customize gold foiled wedding cake. This cake was jaw dropping and I loved how the floral details tied into the rest of the shoot! Creating a unique way to display any dessert table, the cake pops and cake champagne flutes were designed and made by Fancy Me Cupcakes.
Last but not least a huge shout out goes to my girls from the Photography Stylistas; Keren, Jacqui, Kelly, Aparna and Nikole… I’m so blessed to call each of you friends and thankful we have been able to style some amazing weddings together. It has been fabulous to watch each of you grow and I look forward to what 2014 has in store for us.
My hope is that this parisian styled wedding provides you with some amazing ideas for your own wedding!
