What better way to close out the year than with a beautiful wedding at Pazzo’s 311?    Kristen and Jeff lit up this beautiful atrium space with their constant smiles and the vibrant energy of their bridal party. We hoped to further brighten the space with tons of  candles, flowers and gold branches for the reception.

      Christa and Dave's Fun Family Affair at  Carnivale Chicago      We had the pleasure of creating the decor for Christa and Dave's big day this past September.   The weather was gloomy but that didn't put a damper on this fun intimate event.  The bride is one of the most chill people you'll ever meet and wanted a ceremony and reception to match her laid back disposition ... we achieved this with lots of warm glow candles, beautiful rich purple tones and subdued white centerpieces that would not clash with the vibrant atmosphere of the reception venue.  The happy ( and gorgeous) couple got to enjoy their big day with an intimate group, in an intimate setting with a big city as their backdrop!  Photo credit goes to Jamie Vester Photography and Design
