An 80 degree day in October is what wedding dreams are made of in Chicago! Kate and Matt were lucky enough to enjoy the unseasonably warm temps, while also incorporating the amazing colors and elements of fall, making for a perfect day.
The prep process began at the Dana Hotel where Kate and the ladies spent their morning in a gorgeous suite, relaxing and enjoying hair and makeup services by the talented artists from Bianca Sansosti. Matt and his groomsmen also spent a quiet morning at the Dana Hotel getting ready and enjoying their time before all the activities began. Rebecca Marie Photography arrived to capture the day and all its details and then, with lush florals in hand from Fleur, Inc., it was time to depart for their ceremony.
St. James Chapel was breathtaking, providing the most perfect space for Kate and Matt’s intimate ceremony. After exchanging vows, family and friends gathered on the front steps for a bubble send-off before departing on their trolley from The Chicago Trolley and Double Decker Company for photos with their wedding party. Taking full advantage of the incredible weather, the group headed straight to the Lakefront and Lincoln Park.
Meanwhile, the space at Artifact Events was being transformed into the most warm and romantic setting. Fleur, Inc. created incredible arrangements and centerpieces which flooded the room with candlelight, which was perfectly complimented with twinkle lights draping the dance floor by Event Brilliance. As guests arrived, they were welcomed with delicious and unique hors d’oeuvres from Blue Plate Catering and delightful music by TVK Orchestra.
Guests settled in for a lovely evening as they enjoyed an excellent meal from Blue Plate Catering, a gorgeously delicious wedding cake from West Town Bakery, loving speeches from family, and exciting special dances. They packed the dance floor until the very end of the evening with TVK Orchestra before being escorted home in buses provided by M&M Limousines Services.
Kate and Matt, being a part of your wedding day was an honor and a delight. Thank you for letting us be there for your beautiful day and congratulations!!
