From the Photography Stylistas:
Laura Ahern of Accent on Events helped our team design the beautiful sweethearts table. She chose a gorgeous white table runner with a floral texture and gold chargers to accent the soft floral vintage dinner plates. Ashland Addison Florals created some amazing floral arrangements for us. From the stunning orchids to the fresh peonies, each floral setting fit both our bride and table perfectly.

The setting for our styled wedding shoot was a private beach in Wilmette, IL. Our team wanted to create an intimate “destination-like” setting right along our very own Lake Michigan. The shores of Wilmette beach are just removed enough from the city of Chicago to give the intimate summer wedding we hoped for. To weave everything together seamlessly, we dressed our bride in a lovely champagne colored gown and our groom was styled in a tan suit, perfect for a beach setting.
