Jamie and John just make sense! Both as a couple and as a wedding in the making. Jamie having a design background and John having a logistics background, made for the perfect blueprint on this fabulous day.
Jamie wore an elegant vintage satin dress while John wore a navy suit with a quirky gingham shirt and patterned bow tie. It was great to see their style come through on the wedding day. The bride even had a custom satin harness made for the ring bearer—their dog Fiona—so that she matched the intricate details of Jamie’s vintage dress. Fiona’s ‘outfit’ was custom made by John’s mom.
The bride used to be a graphic designer, so she knew she had to design something special for her big day. She lovingly sketched the invitations, programs, menus and place cards, had them letterpress printed and then painted each one by hand.
Jamie and John had an emotional and thoughtful vow exchange below a suspended flower-covered chuppah at the lofty Open Secrets Studios in Chicago’s Near West Side. After they said “I do”, Kerrie of City Girl Weddings put together quite the party filled with some of Chicago’s best vendors that went late into the night! It all went off without a hitch.
Everywhere I looked, there was another beautiful detail that I had missed before. Vintage elements, the bride’s dress, the farm tables, the un-fussy floral design that covered every nook and cranny of the loft, the modern white backdrop and every other little detail were what made this night so amazing. Jamie clearly had a vision for her big day that really came through.
