These two were so wonderful to work with! Not only are they gorgeous, but they have the warmest hearts and the biggest senses of humor. They are also so close to their families and wanted to make sure that there was something for everyone at the wedding that we were creating. Their style is pretty impeccable which was where we started. Cool, chic, clean with a touch of sparkle was the goal, and from the immensely personal ceremony at St. Paul’s to the surprise performances (shout out to Chicago Police Pipe Band for the best intro! And to The Four C Notes for an amazing show!) this was one whirlwind of a day. Not to mention how awesome the surprise birthday cake for the bride was! The sweet groom surprised his bride with a cake because they were married on her birthday!

 

Needless to say, they deserved every moment, while never losing sight of the fact that the day was a celebration of the beginning of their marriage. THAT was something so special to see. ❤️

Revel Decor transformed Lowe’s Chicago with giant banana leaves, incredible lighting and some soft floral to round out the overall look.. Samantha was radiant in her Stephen Yearick couture dress. And of course, Michael was dashing as always. The visible love for each other is a really beautiful thing. I was so happy for MDE to have a part in this most beautiful day.

 

Samantha and Michael, your families, your friends and both of you will always be so special to me. Thank you both for that, and congratulations!
