Katie & Jeff’s Germania Place Wedding – Part 2

Slightly belated, but here is Part 2 of Katie & Jeff’s Germania Place wedding! (If you missed it, here’s the link to Part 1) They wanted a color scheme with rich jewel tones, so Spin Chicago brought in deep purple uplights, which made the room so dramatic! Florist extraordinaire, Vale of Enna, created gorgeous florals in shades of eggplant, purple, magenta and accents of orange and gold… stunning in that space! And just check out those chandeliers and the bronze domes!

 I’m always a sucker for manzanita branches sprinkled with hanging candles. The base is covered spray roses, garden roses, mini calla lillies, antique hydrangea, and the biggest ornamental artichokes I’ve ever seen!

We at Sweetchic, created the escort cards and menus which wrapped around the napkins.
