Draped in gorgeous florals and planned beautifully by LOLA Event Productions, this Chicago History Museum is one for the books. It’s literally layered in lovely, and honestly, you can’t get better than that. One look at this gallery and you’ll be head over heels, and you can get a peek at all the pretty right here.
From Studio Starling…Laura and Ryan fell in love. They were married at the Chicago History Museum on a glorious September afternoon. The ceremony was outdoors and the light was warm and the guests were smiling. The day began at the Sheraton Towers in a suite with 180 degree views of the city. We gasped at the light and all the wonderful props the room had to offer for still life photos. We gasped with joy once again when we realized we were working with both of our studio mates LOLA Event Productions and Cornelia McNamara florist.
Laura and Ryan walked the river walk and around the Caldwell Lily Pool for portraits. The day was luminous, the couple was stunning and their bridal party kept the laughs coming. While we were out, the Chicago History Museum was being made beautiful by the creative crew. The ceremony space was gorgeous with the view extending into Lincoln Park, the dining room was filled with flowers and so many wonderful details to regard. LOLA Event Productions was wildly creative using some antique doors for the seating chart and Corneilia McNamara put together over 70 arrangements for the event. Each table setting was lovingly put together by this team. A perfect day for a wonderfully perfect loving couple.
From LOLA Event Productions…Vintage elegance was the design inspiration for this event. The bride wanted to mesh the elegant backdrop of the museum with her preferences for vintage and very natural touches. The shine of the shantung linen and hemstitched napkins by BBJ were the perfect compliment to the elegant neutral and blush blooms finished with vintage milk glass and jadeite floral vessels and barn board table runners by Cornelia McNamara. LOLA Event Productions added special touches like a collection of old doors and windows turned table assignment display flanking the entrance to the museum.
