We are never shy to say we love weddings all through the year but we just can’t help but falling a little more in love with a gorgeous fall wedding! This wedding for our bride Courtney is a stunning example of why..
Our bride was referred to us courtesy of the wedding power duo Bill Brennan and Jim Verraros owners at Luxury Bridal Expo Chicago. She wore an incredible Monique Lhuillier dress with intricate lace detailing. Courtney wanted a clean Updo to compliment her dress. For makeup, she really left the details to her makeup artist Lauren, but had the vision of a subtle smokey eye. Overall wanting to keep the look very romantic. Her inspiration for her wedding was quite simple: to channel Cinderella for a day! Her bridal colors she chose were a lovely Navy, Light Blue and Gold. The reception was at the incredible Medinah Country Club. Perfectly fitting for our Cinderella bride! With a bridal party totaling 9 people one of Courtney’s favorite moments while getting hair and makeup done was the relaxed atmosphere and the “long coffee chats” between her and her friends. We love hearing that! In the end, her best piece of advice has to be one of our favorites as well, “Go with your gut & don’t hold back! It is your day, do what YOU want!”
Now that is our kind of bride! To create a dream wedding like Courtney’s we suggest using the following vendors:
