Be still our peplum loving hearts for this wedding attire just might be the death of us. It's the fiercest of the fierce dresses by Marchesa coupled with a wedding that has a gorgeous modern edge made even more so by its surroundings at the Art Institute of Chicago. Even the flowers by Kehoe Designs are works of art in and of themselves and the images by Amanda Wilcher do the whole affair a beautiful justice.

From the Bride... Both Steve and I love clean lines and a modern look. We were 99% set on a different venue when we decided to take a look at Terzo Piano, located in the Art Institute of Chicago. The moment we saw it, we knew we were going to make the switch and even had to change our date to make it happen. With the perfect venue, everything else seemed to fall into place. The beautiful architecture, interior design and, of course, the art, made for the perfect foundation to start from. It was the epitome of the modern style that I love, so it made decisions for complementing floral and decor elements easy.
Most important to us though, was the overall vibe of our wedding. In the end, we just wanted everyone eat, drink, dance to great music and have as much fun as we were. The band was great — they got everyone dancing all night. Our choice to have elements like the food stations, gelato bar, outdoor photo booth and a candy station for favors was all so that everyone could move around and socialize all night, Steve and me included. We didn't want to get too caught up in the “formalities” that can take over a wedding.
