Chicago Illuminating Company

Real Wedding: Carey & Matt

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]  Take a look at the stunning Fall wedding of Carey & Matt planned by Renny on October 13th.  The Chicago Illuminating Company served as the venue for both the dramatic and modern ceremony as well as the glamorous reception that had guests celebrating well into the night!  Jeffrey & Julia Woods Photography was on hand to capture every beautiful moment from the stunning couple to all the little personal touches sprinkled throughout the event in the couple's color scheme of rich navy, bright pink, grey and white.  The vibrant colors of Fall were also in full force to set the backdrop for some breathtaking bridal party shots in the courtyard of the Illuminating Company.  Even though it may have sprinkled a little earlier in the day, the weather cleared up just in time for the emotional ceremony set under a dramatic Chuppah created by Event Creative.  Guests were whisked to the cocktail hour in the cozy bar off of the courtyard  and greeted with a pink hued signature cocktail.  Dinner was served under the 40 foot ceilings of the main dining room complete with lucite candelabras and seemingly floating white hydrangea centerpieces adorning the tables.   The beaming couple and their guests then danced the night away only stopping for quick breaks to sit in the glossy white modern victorian lounge set up bordering the dancefloor!   Congrats to Matt & Carey!

Real Wedding: Corrine & Chuck

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Gosh I love what i do!  What a way to start off the 2010 wedding season! I get to work with amazing couples like Corrine & Chuck.  They are the most gorgeous, sweetest, coolest couples ever.  We had a ball planning their incredible wedding at the Chicago Illuminating Company.

I was in LOVE with their colors:  Cornflower (Bliss) blue, white and graphite.  SO PRETTY!  Their ceremony was mostly all white with a fabulous blue fabric canopy with their monogram of CC in white floral hanging behind them.

The square guest tables were dressed in graphite gorgeous linens.  The chairs were white chiavari with white cushions.  So clean and crisp.  The Dreamy Spring centerpieces were set in square white low containers filled with all white flowers - hydrangea, peonies, stock, roses, lilac, tulips and ranunculus.  Ahhhhh.  A Bride's dream come true!

The day couldn't go any better.  The weather was perfect and not one hiccup.  They started at the mouth watering new hotel, The Elysian.  Look at these amazing pics in their foyer.  When can i move in?

The evening was magical.  Everyone danced the night away.  We incorporated the blue into the room with yards of gorgeous cornflower blue fabric panels we dramatically pulled back after cocktail hour to welcome guests into the dining area.

At the very end, we did a wonderful sparkler send off for Corrine & Chuck.  Everyone lined the brick alley with festive sparklers.  Look at these.  They were nearly 4 feet long!  LOVE this pic.

 

What a night!  A HUGE hug and kiss congrats from all of us at Bliss.  We can't wait to celebrate with you next time you come in town. xoxox
