Real Wedding: Whitney & Rob

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Bliss Weddings & Events is delighted to be featured on Style Me Pretty Illinois today! Katie, of Bliss Weddings & Events, created a beautiful wedding that incorporated tiny touches important to the bride and groom that fit into the preppy, elegant style of their big day. Large monogram moss letters, a chalkboard menu and bar sign, a fully loaded candy bar, mix matched vintage plates, plenty of votive candles and their closest friends and family filled the beautiful space of The Ivy Room. The bride, Whitney, chose the perfect preppy palette: Navy, Ivory, pink and touches of natural greens. The couple said their I do's at Chicago's gorgeous St. James Cathedral, before dancing the night away with the help of The Larry King Orchestra. We are so grateful to have been able to help these lovebirds with their special day and wish them the absolute best from the Bliss Belles! Katie's write up on Style Me Pretty Illinois about Whitney and Rob: "From Katie Kozlowski of Bliss Weddings & EventsWhitney and Rob are fun, friendly, family-oriented and have impeccable taste. They wanted to bring special touches of their personality to their inspired Chicago wedding at St. James and the Ivy Room, all while keeping the wedding comfortable, elegant and special. We wanted it to feel as though Whitney and Rob had invited all of their closest family and friends to their home away from home for a special celebration. Using the preppy palette of navy, ivory, pink and natural greens, we complemented the dreamy Ivy Room courtyard with moss-letters in their initials, delicate blooms and cutie details, like stir sticks for the bars with the couples’ monogram and a hand-written dinner menu on a chalkboard (Whitney’s a teacher!). Once guests got inside for dinner, polished tables with mismatched china, tiny lapel wax blooms on each plate, and different centerpieces on each table set the stage. We used a variety of candlesticks, vases and blooms, as well as soft pin-spotting, up-lighting and drapes to welcome guests to dinner. No detail was overlooked, with a candy bar to pay homage to the bride’s love of sweets, and a surprise video-speech from the groom’s brother stationed in Afghanistan. And of course, there was the fun: A Polaroid camera and scrapbook provided guests with a chance to leave their personal message, The Larry King Orchestra kept guests on the dance floor all night, and Chicago-themed late night snacks recharged the dancers."
