Jaime & Bryan's Romantic Celebration

Jaime and Bryan's wedding is featured in the Winter 2015 issue of Inside Weddings.

Bryan did not take his eyes off of Jaime all day long. His smile said it all. Bryan was crazy about Jaime and couldn't be more excited about marrying her. I love how they rarely left each other's side throughout the day. They were inseparable. Bryan says it best, "Enjoy the wedding weekend, just as we did. It doesn't need to be stressful. If you and your bride are having fun, then everyone at the wedding will have a good time, too."

The ceremony and reception were held at The Standard Club. This private Chicago club is known for personalized service, culinary excellence and a beautiful ballroom. Susan Davidson and Robbin Shapiro, the dynamic duo behind The Party People, exceeded all of the bride and groom's expectations. Jaime looked gorgeous in her Monique Lhuillier dress and veil from Ultimate Bride.

Tom Kehoe, of Kehoe Designs, created the ethereal and romantic environment that the bride envisioned. Jaime and Bryan were beyond thrilled with all of the floral arrangements and decor elements that Tom and his team created. After Jaime serenaded her handsome husband, Rendezvous Music kept the crowd entertained and dancing till the very end.

The guests were treated to sophisticated linens by BBJ Table Fashions, romantic lighting by Frost, delicious wedding cake and delightful Jar'd Cake to enjoy at home by Cake Sweet Food Chicago.

We feel fortunate to live and work in the beautiful, Chicago neighborhood of Logan Square, among many talented artists and entrepreneurs. We believe in the beauty of blending historic with modern. Built in 1916, our European style live-work building, is land-marked by the city of Chicago, full of character and modern style. It is a dream come true to have a charming studio, surrounded by beautiful boulevards, as the foundation of our creative endeavors.

"It is a pleasure to get to know our couples, become part of their inner circle, understand their connections, and hone in on what matters most. Every celebration has its own personality, vibe and feeling. To interpret and translate the feeling, love and joy, we look for the split-second glances, tender touches, belly laughs and genuine smiles. Emotionally connected, we sense magical moments; one must first feel, and then see to be able to interpret. This is the foundation of our creative process."

"Inspired by all art forms: paintings, architecture, fashion, cinema, music and food, we incorporate our sensibilities into everything we do. Blending emotional imagery with a modern and elegant viewpoint is how we tell very personal stories in a nuanced way. We do this so that you may savor your celebration, long after it ends, and remember those feelings forever. It would be our privilege to interpret your unique story."
