PERFECT PROPOSAL: Andy flew in friends from all over the country to surprise Claire with a proposal on North Avenue Beach overlooking the Chicago skyline.
HUES TO USE: The couple had a sweet, Southern wedding with a rustic elegance twist in hues of peaches and blush.
AMAZING ALTAR: Claire’s dad made the ceremony arch from local cedar trees, and her florist, Sweet Magnolia Floral Studio, adorned it with greenery and floral.
BEAUTIFUL BLOOMS: The bride carried a loose bouquet with a unique blend of herbs, peonies, garden roses and ranunculus with gorgeous cascading greenery. The bridesmaids carried a smaller version of the bride’s bouquet in colors of peach, ivory and blush.
SAVORY SWEETS: Sweet Treets Bakery created a Madagascar vanilla cake with a large cluster of blooms on the center tier.
VENDOR LOVE: Pearl Events Austin helped define the vision of the wedding and knew how to execute it to perfection. Their fabulous team helped Claire think of things that she never would have considered.
