If there’s anything that brightens my day, it’s a lush bouquet filled with pretty pinks, peaches and creamy whites like this beaut from Exquisite Designs. I could breathe in it’s loveliness all day long. But it’s only just the start of this sweet spread from Michelle Durpetti Events and Greenhouse Loft Photo. There’s so much more waiting in the gallery!
From Greenhouse Loft Photo… Jenny and Rob’s wedding was an intimate gathering of friends and family at the gorgeous Greenhouse Loft and it was truly a celebration of love! The couple spent the morning primping and prepping at the Renaissance Hotel and Your Stylist AJ made sure the girls were perfectly coiffed, while Shannon O’Brien made sure their the first look took place on the roof of the hotel, overlooking the river with breathtaking views of the city, but Rob obviously couldn’t take his eyes off of Jenny!
The couple and their bridal party, along with the fantastic photographers from Greenhouse Loft, then jumped in a Windy City Limousine bus and headed to some of couple’s favorite spots.
While they were snapping away Food for Thought, Elegant Event Lighting, Exquisite Designs and Michelle Durpetti Events were making sure to put the finishing touches on the airy loft space. The couple chose a neutral palette, with hints of blush, which complimented the space perfectly. Jenny and Rob really put their own design flair into this day, designing all the day of collateral themselves! The programs were perfectly personal, the table numbers all had items that were special to the couple (like Jenny’s fond memories of 2% milk at her grandmother’s house) and the seating chart was practically a feat of engineering that Rob put together!
The ceremony was a personal, tear-jerking event, with a good friend acting as the officiant. Jenny and Rob said “I Do” and they headed outside to the Greenhouse Loft garden to enjoy the beautiful summer weather and signature drinks of Moscow Mule and Rum Punch. They even had personalized bags boards for guests to enjoy! Dinner was a buffet of delicious fare by Food for Thought and everyone ate and drank and enjoyed themselves.
The loft really came alive in the evening, with the soft, pink lighting done by Elegant Event Lighting illuminating all the sweet details, like the low blush and white arrangements by Exquisite Designs. Jenny’s floral dreams came true with hydrangeas, roses and dahlias, complimented with lots of candlelight. Tipsy Cake created one of the sweetest cakes we’ve seen, with a lovely modern flair, and the couple loved cutting in! Guests danced the night away to Style Matters and the dream day was complete!
