Hey friends! It’s September and we’re starting to catch our breath after a busy summer. In early August, our dresses were featured at the Big Fake Wedding in Chicago. Wedding Chicks recapped the event on their blog. Check it out for an in-depth look at how to create a Mid-Century Modern wedding day.
The bride donned two of our dresses. She looked stunning in a black version of the Celine dress and our new Nia dress that will be available this Fall!
The event was held at Company 251 in Aurora, Illinois. The warehouse venue was like a canvas. So much could be done to in the space.
We had a blast working with photographers Jaelynn Rose, Bozena Voytko, and Emma Belen.
“Dark + Stormy” was the theme for the night. We loved the contrasts, the mood, and the mystery.
Brides who love a little edge will get a lot of inspiration for a Fall wedding.
The elegant menus, place cards, and calligraphy table accents were done by The Blond Scribe.
The misty blue bridesmaid dresses added to the shadowy elements of the night.
The atmosphere, the people, and all the love made for a fun party.
Celebrating their love was definitely the highlight.
