Hitched: Heather & David’s Kitchen Chicago Wedding

Our second of the year was Heather & David’s vintage and eclectic wedding at Kitchen Chicago, a lovely shared-use kitchen that is available for event rental… and perfect for an intimate, relaxed wedding! Our team had an amazing time helping Heather bring her details to life… and then we got the great news just a few days later that their beautiful photos by Cristina G Photography were going to be featured on Style Me Pretty (click the link for the gorgeous feature and more photos!)!

Meet Courtney, Sweetchic’s Newest Assistant!

A new year, a new Assistant to add to our Sweetchic team!! Courtney has been a tremendous to help me in the studio on a daily basis and she is going to be an amazing asset to our couples on their wedding day!

Hey there! My name is Courtney and I am proud to be the newest member of the Sweetchic team as Charlene’s assistant :)  I know there is no other place than Sweetchic Events for me to take the plunge into the wedding industry! Here’s a little bit about me….I’m currently a senior at Roosevelt University (I graduate May 4th! ) majoring in Hospitality Management with a concentration in Meeting and Event Planning. Where did my interest for weddings start? I’ve always had this love for weddings, meaning that I had my wedding (and my best friend’s wedding) planned for some time now. But growing up in a teeny town full of corn, corn, and more corn, I wasn’t able to see elaborate weddings and events. What I did see was that I was the only one in school who carried a day planner, I organized and re-organized things way too much, had an attention for detail, and I did have that creative bone in my body. It was my obsession for planning that led me to Roosevelt. I had taken several meeting planning classes, but it wasn’t until my Special Events class that I knew where I belonged. Seeing all the venues, the linens, flowers, food, and lighting…need I go on?

When I’m not at Sweetchic or slaving over homework you can find me: dancing, scrapbooking, Pinning, reading, watching sports, obsessing over something Twilight related, or relaxing with my boyfriend.

It’s already been a privilege assisting Charlene these past few weeks, and I’m super pumped for my first wedding day I’ll be able to assist on!

Engaged! Elizabeth & David

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Elizabeth and David on their upcoming wedding at the Ivy Room! We’ve been assembling an all-star cast of vendors, including Limelight Catering, The Flower Firm, and Avery House, the fabulous photographers who sent me these beautiful engagement photos to share:

Meet Maddy, Elizabeth & David’s adorable boxer who absolutely had to be included in the shoot!

Elizabeth is so, so pretty!
