Megan & Brian featured in Modern Luxury Brides Chicago

Megan and Brian's wedding is featured in the Fall/Winter 2015 issue of Modern Luxury Brides Chicago.

The Peninsula Chicago was the perfect location for Megan and Brian's glamorous, city wedding. Family and friends traveled from near and far to celebrate with the couple. White and cream roses, hydrangeas and orchids were just a few of the elements that made their ceremony and reception so beautiful.

All of their guests were treated to delicious food, beautiful decor, and fabulous live entertainment all night long. In the evening, guests stepped out onto the Peninsula's spectacular terrace for some fresh air and views of the cityscape. Megan and Brian's dreams of a sophisticated, fun, city wedding came to life on a night they will never forget!

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."
