The overall vision for this wedding was classic and romantic. Layered onto this timeless foundation are countless personal elements of their love story.
There wasn’t a single detail forgotten, from the custom guest-bathroom napkins to the groom’s cake to their amazing choreographed first dance. The couple gave a nod to their love of good food and drinks with a special menu and signature his and hers cocktails— a bourbon old-fashioned and a dirty martini (with blue cheese olives of course). They tied in their aesthetic eye and city pride with stunning wedding party photos in Chicago’s Grant Park and the ever-famous Board of Trade.
Ariana and Ben also have some serious style which was another key component of the day. Her gorgeous Inbal Dror lace gown complimented his look from Black Tux. The wedding party, in all black, accompanied by simple ivory and green arrangements really elevated this timeless look.
This was a day filled with family, loved ones, and a little extra sparkle.
