This is a tough one! Tifany at Gourmet Invitations sent us these beautiful images from the amazing photographers at The Shooting Gallery of Shannon and Aaron’s wedding, and it’s nearly impossible to rave about this wedding enough! Shannon’s to-die-for gown. The unbelievable art nouveau invitations. The edgy photography and gorgeous florals … well, you be the judge!

And from Tifany’s website

According to Tifany, the invitation design was born from Shannon’s exquisite dress …

And from there … a fairytale dream come true celebration!

LOVE this shot … {Aaron is a chef}

Our THANKS to The Shooting Gallery for sharing these gorgeous images!

And here, from Shannon, their wedding “inspiration” …

I got my Lazaro gown at a trunk show at Macy’s State Street in Chicago. My Mom flew to Chicago for the weekend to attend the trunk show with me – Lazaro was there and drew a sketch of me in the dress … Super cool! I gave our floral designers at Blossoms a picture of my dress and that’s all. We knew whatever Norm & Dale did would be beautiful. Dale had suggested having a mini pocket on our place cards with the name of the guest on the outside- and a card on the inside with the table number and their entree choice. We met with Tifany and she made it happen! She also designed the custom menus (each guest’s name and their specific entree choice) ~ they were just perfect. The boxed invitations were beautiful and a result of us throwing around a few ideas- they morphed into the neatest invites I’ve ever seen. Aaron’s artistic side had the idea of using shadow boxes and mini stones to display the place cards.

How We Planned Our Wedding: We really and truly planned the wedding 100% together. We chose all of our vendors with the ‘coffee test’- if we met them and wanted to go have coffee with them- they were the one!

Congratulations on a positively stunning wedding!!
