First blog back in a while! We’re kicking off a series of posts that will showcase all of the absolutely stunning weddings we worked on in 2021! In addition to a couple of late 2020 weddings that we are super delayed on getting posted 🙂
Tori & Greg postponed from 2020 to early 2021. While there were still some limitations with the gathering size, this day came together so beautifully. With a smaller guest count, they were able to focus their attention on all of the magnificent details – like adding to the beautiful floral design from Flor del Monte, expanding their dinner menu to be a true dining experience, providing guests with the most exceptional welcome bags and take home boxes through, and including their entire guest count for celebrations on Friday and Saturday evenings.
Tori and the girls got ready at The Hoxton in the Apartment space which was one of the best getting ready spaces I’ve ever used. It was also the setting for their First Look as we had to adjust on the fly when some rain moved in. Then it was time to move down the street to The Dalcy – a stunning venue in the heart of the West Loop of Chicago – for the ceremony and reception. The event space has the industrial vibe of the West Loop and then you transition to a different world for Cocktail Hour (set at Aba). The Dalcy team flipped the ceremony space while guests sat under the skylights and trees for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Then it was back into the space for the most delicious meal and music by Bluewater Kings Band.
I know that planning a 2020 wedding and having to adjust to 2021 was not easy. It’s hard to reimagine what you had originally thought your wedding would look like but these two were graceful and continued to adjust as regulations continued to evolve (talk about stressful). The result was a beautiful and really meaningful weekend with their closest family and friends. Tori and Greg – thank you for having us. Wishing you many, many more years of happiness together.
