Glass Brick Room Wedding

May 28, 2013


Valerie and Andre elected to have a more urban chic themed wedding. All of their guests arrived at the gallery and entered through the garden pathway and into the rear “Glass Brick Room” for their ceremony. The exposed brick and dramatic up lighting made for a stellar and unique effect. After their ceremony, everyone then entered the main gallery for a total “Wow” factor and marvelous buffet provided by Rene and her team at C’est Si Bon. After dinner, the “Glass Brick Room” had been flipped into a beautiful lounge for a night of dancing.

Annettes Big Surprize !

May 22, 2013

img_dad_daughter2Annette and Jaymes had a smaller wedding in Lincoln Parks Floating World Gallery last Saturday. The groom, being an artist himself, had all of our artwork taken down and put up his own. The gallery looked stunning.

As the ceremony began, everyone was in their place and ready to begin. It was very clear from the beginning that the bride would be walking down the aisle alone. After the ring bearer and flower girl made there way to the front, the bride began her walk towards the aisle. As if from nowhere, a man appeared to greet her to escort her. As it turned out, the man was here father, whom she hadn’t seen in 8 years. The raw emotion in the room was palpable. It is a wedding I will never forget.

Elegant Chicago Loft Wedding

April 11, 2013

On March 30th, Audrey and Paul had an early spring wedding and reception at Floating World Gallery, Chicago’s new premiere loft reception site   . They took full advantage of the versatility of the “blank canvas” that the main gallery offers. The 12′ ceilings and exposed brick made a perfect back-drop for this minimalist “urban-chic” theme.
This beautiful couple chose to do a seated dinner for 100 people with rectangular tables rather than the typical 60″ rounds.It made for a stunning look with all of the clean lines. It will definitely be something I suggest to future clients.
