There is totally a reason the word “Chic” is in the word “Chicago” and I’m pretty sure this winter wedding just proved why. David Wittig Photography send this stunner our way, so we definitely owe a big thank you to him. The couples wedding style is killer – set in the middle of a bunch of amazing antiques at Chicago’s famous Salvage One, they were somehow able to make their wedding feel contemporary amongst all those romantic, vintage details. That, I must say, is serious wedded talent. You won’t want to miss the gallery for more of this affair to remember!

It was the first BIG snow of December 2007 and we both found ourselves in a cozy neighborhood bar. There is something magical about the first snow of the year and that night it was a magical, indeed! December became a special month for us, as two years later Oren proposed on a Thursday morning, in December and we decided to marry the following December on the “Eve of the Eve”.

We discovered Salvage One, a vintage resale furniture shop, for its charm and uniqueness. We decided to have both the ceremony and reception at Salvage One, which allowed for us to have continuity throughout the evening. We wanted it to feel intimate so we utilized the venue’s unique collection of chandeliers and simple candles to create warmth. The chandelier became a theme we used with our stationary and programs. We used minimal décor. White candles, simple white floral and amber up-lighting to create a glow.
