Chicago Wedding - Rustic and Glam

We are just returning from a weekend in Chicago.  We attended the wedding of the daughter of one of our dear friends.

It was held at the Chez Venue on Ontario Street in the city.  The venue was transformed into a magical fantasy of gauzy  pinks, deep purples and candlelight. The fun vibe of rustic versus glam kept you engaged with the décor details all evening.

Entering the space, guests walked by a large menu board framed in barn wood. 
 Table assignments were listed for the attendees.

Yards and yards of pink chiffon divided the cocktail area from  the ceremony space.

The décor was a mix of rustic and glam - thus this fun mirrored bar!

The ceremony setting-

I loved this mix of romantic and modern lighting over the ceremony-
 romantic for the bride and modern for the groom!

The music begins and the bride appears- glowing - like an angel-

In an all lace gown and a bouquet of David Austin roses and dinner plate zinnias,
 Sarah was stunning.

The dinner tables were layered with soft pink sequined clothes and a profusion of flowers and
crystal candlelight.

Love the festive menu card! Fun and bubbly like the bride's personality.

One of my favorite touches- butter in parsley for the hot bread.

And as a finish to the delicious meal- one of the best wedding cakes that I have ever tasted!
It was a dream wedding- thoughtfully detailed and a true pleasure to attend!
Congratulations Sarah and Christian! 
May you live happily ever after!
