Sara & Mark’s Room 1520 Wedding – Part 2

Yay, more stunning photos from Sara & Mark’s wedding at Room 1520! Last week we left off with their beautiful wedding party photos around the city… and here we are at their ceremony + reception! Vale of Enna’s amazing floral work never disappoints, and brought oodles of vibrant colors to the wedding. This escort card arrangement with coral charm peonies, mokara orchids, spray roses, protea, and branch accent was the perfect way to welcome guests.

Sara & Mark’s Room 1520 Wedding – Part 1

We have some catching up to do with posting our 2014 weddings, but they’re so pretty, we just have to share! I love it when our couples embrace color! Sara and Mark envisioned a vibrant wedding in hues of coral, bright pink, and orange, in their beautifully neutral wedding venue, Room 1520. Gorgeous photos by Studio Finch. I love the coral and orange wedding invitations they chose via Minted.

Martha & Ricardo’s Kitchen Chicago Wedding

There is nothing more exciting than a bride who knows exactly what she wants and has poured her heart and soul into finding every single detail. And let me tell you, there are A LOT of details. This black & gold, Old Hollywood glamour wedding could not have been a better portrayal of Martha & Ricardo – classic & fun.

Kitchen Chicago was the perfect location for a vintage, rustic vibe, with lush green and white floral centerpieces by Asrai Garden enhanced the sequin lined tables. Sprung Photography captured the most vibrant photos of their glamorous day which was filled with so much laughter and sweet tears.
