Brynne and Peter’s Chicago reception was my last event of the 2012 wedding season, and it was an incredible way to close out the year. I had known the couple since last spring when I was a part of Peter’s sister Elizabeth’s wedding so it was truly like being among family! Plus, Brynne has been a major part of my life bi-annually as my dentist (the best dentist in Chicago–make your appointment today at In the Loop Dental!).
Back in September, Peter and Brynne had been married in an intimate ceremony and celebration beneath golden-leaved Aspen trees at Brynne’s family home in Crystal, Colorado. A few photos follow, but check out this blog post by their photographer, Nate from J. Nelson Photography. Words just don’t do it justice.
Doesn’t it look absolutely magical? Since they couldn’t have all of their Chicago friends and family present in Colorado, Brynne and Peter decided to bring the party to their guests in the midwest. They hosted a dessert reception at Firehouse Chicago, a video and photography studio in a revamped firehouse on the north side of Chicago. Guests nibbled on delectable sweets by TruffleTruffle, sipped Urban Apple and Minty Mojito cocktails batched by Brynne and Peter, and danced the night away to Style Matters‘ dj skills. Fleur provided some wild organic arrangements to add a touch of fall flora. We lucked out with a mild evening, so guests were able to meander outside to enjoy Firehouse’s adorable side yard.
As luck would have it, Jenny and Nate love to travel, so though they are Colorado-based, they were able to shoot both the Crystal ceremony and Chicago reception. Brynne and Peter, this was a fabulous way to celebrate your love just one more time! I am honored that I got to be a part of it.
