The city of Chicago was picture perfect for Liz and Greg’s wedding and reception at Venue One. This day could not have been more beautiful for a couple that was (and is!) filled with so much love and kindness for each other and those close to them. The day, as a whole, was relaxed and filled with laughter from the very beginning to the last moments of this incredible day!
The bridal party got ready at InterContinental Chicago. Arch Weddings helped to make the ladies feel even more stunning with hair and makeup services. The couple then took a moment to themselves for their first look in the lobby of the hotel. Liz made her way down from the top of the staircase and when Greg saw his bride for the first time, he could not hold back his happiness! The couple and their bridal party then loaded onto a trolley from Second City Trolley to get pictures around the city of Chicago with Becky Brown Photography.
The bridal party and family arrived at Venue One ready for the nuptials of this amazing couple! Flow Ceremonies presided over a flawless service with the incredible floral backdrop provided by Dilly Lily.
The couple fell in love with the space at Venue One because of the mixture of modern and rustic touches. Dilly Lily was able to play off of this by creating custom-made wooden pillars to bring in more natural elements into the modern ceremony space. The spectrum of purple shades were then inspired by the couple’s wedding stationary to create gorgeous centerpieces with wooden and golden touches.
The highly anticipated celebration of Liz and Greg then commenced! The dance floor was packed all night thanks to the live performance of Matt Lewis and The Union. Just when Liz and Greg’s loved ones needed a pick-me-up, a dessert station supplied by Bittersweet was ready to eat! The night ended with a full dance floor and shuttles for guests back to their hotels by Infinity Transportation. Five Grain Events was so incredibly grateful to be a part of such a fun and elegant celebration!
Liz and Greg, it was a true joy working with you both! Here’s to a lifetime of love and happiness!
