I’ll always have a special place in my heart for Chicago, and thanks to this urban-glam love affair captured by Averyhouse, that love is only growing. One part industrial and another part chic, it’s exactly what city wedding dreams are made of with A Perfect Event making magic behind the scenes. Lovelies, believe me when I say your Thursday happy place starts here.


From Averyhouse… An industrial, cobbled warehouse turned wedding reception romance sparkling with chandeliers, southern bourbon bars and Bluegrass. Anjali and Jon dreamed of an intimate candlelight wedding ceremony incorporating Jon’s beautiful Jewish symbols and traditions. Anjali’s vintage gown set the tone for an elegant cum retro speakeasy celebration.

The bride and groom brought together friends and family with their love for all things vintage – from handcrafted his and her bourbon cocktails in collections of styled stemware, to a top tapping blue grass band, to a southern comfort food menu.

Debi designed vintage floral vignettes in Parisian flea market find perfume bottles, cameo vases and Debi Lilly Design for Safeway depression glass vessels placed on top glittered metallic BBJLinen petite bread and butter plates.

Mismatched chiavari and bistro chairs, crystal stemware, china collections and beaded gold tablecloths from Tablescapes and BBJ Linen created a flea market chic ambience for the reception.

For favors donations were made to the couple’s favorite Humane Shelter, packaged into cello sleeves adorned with gold and blush pink washi tape.
