Chelsey & Michael featured on Carats & Cake

A sweet and gentle love. Michael couldn’t take his eyes off his gorgeous bride, Chelsey. Long-time friends traveled from near and far to help celebrate their special day. Family traditions were carried on as the men wore Scottish kilts with their various tartans. Every detail was authentic and meaningful.

Family and friends were the main focus as Chelsey and Michael made everyone feel welcomed, loved and appreciated. Michael gave his groomsmen exquisite timepieces that will be treasured forever. Thoughtfulness is the word that comes to mind when you think of Chelsey and Michael.

The Four Seasons Chicago was the perfect venue for this warm, elegant wedding. Hope Weis made sure no detail was overlooked. Cagen Music entertained the international group all night long. Kehoe Designs was responsible for the beautiful florals.

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."
