I’ve never been to Chicago, but it sure does make for a stunning backdrop for a wedding. Case in point: this gem from behind the lens of Studio Starling that has completely captured my heart. It is so easy to see this bride and groom’s beautiful personality shining through every detail of their big day. From the extraordinary Chicago Cultural Center with its phenomenal ceiling to the cutest drink stirrers, we can see how witty and playful these lovebirds are. And don’t miss the video from Sterling Wedding Cinema that brought tears to this little blogger’s eyes. There’s even more in the gallery, right here.

From Studio Starling… Ellen and Jon’s wedding was youthful, classy and stylish all in one. They started the day at the Trump to get ready, moved to the Terrace for their first meeting, and then traveled to the best Chicago landmarks. They even had Frango Mint Pie — a Chicago tradition. Ellen and Jon were surrounded by such a cute and friendly wedding party. The Chicago Cultural Center was transformed into a dreamy wonderland full of flowers and light. These two bridged traditional and contemporary style perfectly with their venue and vendor choices.
