Real Chicago Wedding: Julia & Jake, University Club of Chicago

What happens when you book your wedding date on a weekend where there are literally no hotel rooms available (thank you gigantic city-wide medical convention) and virtually all of your guests are traveling in for the wedding? Well, you move your wedding date of course!

Yes, this is how wedding planning began for our sweet clients, Julia and Jake. They had originally planned for a June 4th wedding and ended up getting married on a rainy, cool April 30th. Julia and Jake’s wedding day was an elegant, classy affair held at the University Club of Chicago in the stunning Cathedral Hall. They chose a springy palette of whites and greens with touches of Bells of Ireland, as a nod to Julia’s Irish heritage and StemLine Creative did an amazing job pulling it all together. Their guests danced the night away to the incredible sounds of the Becca Kaufman Orchestra.

Be sure to scroll to the end of the post for the killer team of vendors, but take your time with these jaw-dropping photos from Emilia Jane Photography!

Happy {almost} anniversary, Julia and Jake! We loved planning with you!

Real Chicago Wedding: Aubyn & Danny, Kimpton Gray Hotel

Aubyn and Danny were married on a beautiful day in late June at the stunning Kimpton Gray Hotel, using both their ballroom and restaurant. Niki coordinated this wedding and formed a wonderful bond with the couple right away, working closely with them to make sure all the final wedding details came together with ease. It was such a pleasure to work on this wedding with the fantastic team at The Gray and such an extra bonus to walk away with awesome new friends!

BONUS: Check out their incredible wedding film from Red + Olive. We dare you not to cry!

Aubyn has a booming personality and Danny has a very chill demeanor – they both are hysterical and SO in love with one another! Their love for each other was so evident all throughout their wedding day.

They held their wedding ceremony in the stunning ballroom in The Gray. We can’t get enough of the modern chandeliers in there! After the ceremony, guests proceeded literally down the hall into the hotel’s restaurant, Boleo. This space is edgy, modern and moody - perfect for a knockout dance party. Maybe the most interesting thing about this venue is its fully retractable roof, bringing a bit of the outside in! Guests danced the night away under the stars.

Aubyn and Danny met when they were in a band many years ago, called Farraday. Aubyn is still one of the singers in the very popular Chicago band, Gold Coast Allstars, so as you can imagine, having one of its band members get married, the band played a little “EXTRA” at Aubyn and Danny’s Chicago wedding! As you will notice in the amazing photos, their wedding was quite the party!
