We can never get enough of our clients, and their incredible style. We had the best time getting to know Chris & Danae and loved working with them, and some wonderfully talented creatives to bring this timelessly romantic wedding to life in the iconic gold coast ballroom at Chicago’s Drake hotel. On a hot July day, that ballroom was a cool, lush garden of gorgeous. I just loved it! ✨ Photo: @kenny_kim // Floral Design: @northerngreenhouses // Bride’s Gown: @bertabridal @ultimatebridechicago // Bride’s makeup: @emasmakeup // Bride’s Hair: @amandanaj // Bridal Party: @magnificentbrides // Groom’s tux: Custom @trunkclub // Film: @312film // Location: @thedrakechicago @shauny80 // Entertainment: @goldcoastallstars // Transportation: @pontarellicompanies ✨ . . . #weddingphotos #weddingplannerlife #weddingstylist #travelingweddingplanner #weddingday #destinationweddingplanner #weddinginspo #weddinginspiration #30daysofsc #weddingseason #lakeshoreinlove #goldcoastballroom #chicagobotanicgarden #chicagoweddingplanner #weddingplanner #insideweddings #chicagoinfluencer #chicagoweddings #modluxweddingschi #classicchicagowedding #weddings #romance #chicagopartyplanner #weddingplanning #weddingday #editorscircle #thedrakehotelchicago #wedding #weddingphoto #weddinggoals❤

Seaside sunsets are some of my favorite. The perfect backdrop for this stunner of a wedding.

It is always such a pleasure + privilege to be a part of a creative team throughout a planning journey. This escort card display came to life thanks to the creativity of @taylorandcoevents and @eight21studios who worked in harmony with our bride, who created the custom charm on each card herself. When things are organized and communication is fluid, vendor partners can really bring their A game with creativity and fun. And boy did this team do that! This couple was all about celebrating love and trusting their team. And in those kinds of circumstances, magic truly happens ✨✨ Photo: @robert.swiderski // Floral: @taylorandcoevents // Escort Cards: @eight21studios // Location: @thedrakechicago // Planning: Me ❤️ . . . #chicagogram #weddingplannerlife #weddingstylist #insideweddings #weddingday #destinationweddingplanner #weddinginspo #weddinginspiration #30daysofsc #weddingseason #events #weddingfun #weddingideas #chicagoweddingplanner #weddingplanner #chicagogrammers #chicagoinfluencer #chicagoweddings #modluxweddingschi #insideweddings #weddings #stpaddyschicago #chicagopartyplanner #weddingplanning #inspiration #stpatricksdaychicago #lifestyle #wedding #weddingphoto #weddinggoals

Classic Romance. ✨The anemone is one of my favorite flowers, and so are big, beautiful peonies. And basically, this entire bouquet is obsession worthy for me. So fresh, so clean. So gorgeous! @fragrantdesign created this one and it is hands down one of my faves. The mix of soft whites and interesting greens for a bit of extra magic. 😍 Photo: @kylejohnphoto // Dress: @valentinispose @dimitrasbridalcouture . . . . #weddingphotos #weddingplannerlife #weddingstylist #travelingweddingplanner #weddingday #destinationweddingplanner #weddinginspo #weddinginspiration #30daysofsc #weddingseason #lakeshoreinlove #weddingbouquet #anemone #chicagoweddingplanner #weddingplanner #insideweddings #chicagoinfluencer #chicagoweddings #modluxweddingschi #peony #weddings #romance #chicagopartyplanner #weddingplanning #anemone #editorscircle #peonies #wedding #weddingphoto #weddinggoals

Moving from one photo location to the next, @annkamphoto caught one of the sweetest snaps from Raquel & Carl’s gorgeous day. I love how he stepped right in to help her with her (absolutely stunning) gown.

Lounge life. Emerald velvet couches, (faux) skin rugs, and pillows galore are a few ingredients that made this lounge set up one of my favorites. it had such a high style to it, yet a really homey feel that welcomed. Which is so important at a party. And - those roses. 😍 Zoom in on them it is so worth it. That loose, deconstructed, still life feel had me dreaming of Caravaggio even though we were channeling the Kentucky Derby. I know. Sounds weird, but it makes perfect sense in my head that dreams of Renaissance Italian at the same time as equestrian chic, with a dash of baroque and for good measure a hint of southern charm. Good thing that kind of thinking lends itself perfectly to the creativity encouraged in this wide world of wedding and event production. 🤩 Photo: @collinpierson // Floral & Decor: @revel_decor // Venue: @thelakewoodchicago // Catering: @paramountevents // Entertainment: @bkobeatmix // Printed items: @smittenboutiquechicago // Plan + Style: MDE ❤️ . . . #southernladymag #kentuckyderby #kentuckyderbyparty #runfortheroses #pinkroses #chicagoweddingphotographer #southernlivingmagazine #italymagazine #designinthedetails #bridalshowerideas #chicagoweddingplanner #chicagopartyplanner #weddingplannerflorence #socialcurator #equestrianstyle #equestrian #roses #equestriandecor #derbystyle #equestrianchic #insideweddings #bridesmagazine #bridalshowerdecor

Sweetest statement. Love was in the air along with the fragrance of 38 different kind of floral for Saturday’s wedding. Brimming with old world romance, dutch masters inspiration and serious style, it was one for the books. And can we talk for a moment about this incredible cake? With mindful details, thoughtful inclusions and beauty everywhere, this wedding was a dream. From the creatives contributing to the couple who shared their love story with us. I am eternally grateful to have been a part in bringing this one to life. It was a privilege and a pleasure to work alongside so many wonderful talents for two people that I genuinely adore. Thank you Mr & Mrs Green, and congratulations! Auguri! And much love. ❤️ Incredible cake: @rbicakes (swipe to see how in symphony the cake floral decor was with the incredible floral by @bellefleurny). . . . . . #ronbenisrael #ronbenisraelcakes #rbicakes #sweetgenius #weddingcakeinspo #cakesofinstagram #weddingcake #wedding #newyorkwedding #peony #universityclubnyc #cakedecor #cakedecorating #cakedesigner #newyorkweddingplanner #sugarflowers #editorscircle #floralcake #insideweddings #chicagoweddingplanner #destinationweddingplanneritaly #weddingfloral #uniquecake #anemone #uniqueweddingcakes #fondantcake #fondantcakes #bellefleurnyc #confectionery #ediblelace
