Happy New Years Eve, dear followers of Sweetchic Events!! I hope you all have some fabulous plan for tonight… we’ll be celebrating with some of our nearest and dearest friends.

Here is just a small sampling of our 2011 couples (the pictures that I was able to get!!). Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU again to all of our Sweetchic couples who allowed us to be a part of their most special day!

Hitched: Faye & Arthur’s Garfield Park Wedding Pt 3

After the ceremony, it was time to really get the party started!

Beautiful, garden-inspired arrangement by Asrai Garden.

A view of the lovely Bluestone Patio.

They went with simple white linens and royal blue accents.

The dessert spread by Flour Cake & Pastry was beyond delicious!

Who needs a big wedding cake when you can have a petite cutting cake and a HUGE dessert tower?

 

Congrats again, Faye & Arthur!!

Hitched: Faye & Arthur’s Garfield Park Wedding Pt 2

Where were we…?

Faye & Arthur had a very laid-back vision for their wedding day. So what better way to get their guests relaxed and in the mood to party? A PRE-cocktail hour was the way to go! As guests arrived, we had 30-ish minutes of open bar and snacks… I wish all weddings could kick off with some cocktails! ;)

They had a famous friend… do you recognize this actress who has been in countless movies/tv shows?

One of my favorite things about their wedding (besides the short dress and PRE-cocktail hour!) was their ceremony-in-the-round. They really wanted their ceremony in the Monet Garden, and so we created a long aisle with just a few seats and then standing room only for guests to encircle them. The ceremony was brief, only 15-20 minutes, so it worked out perfectly!

Arthur and his gents looked dapper in their classic black suit and skinny black tie!

I love the look on Faye’s face… such joy!

Mazel Tov!!
