Erika and Teddy’s June wedding at Ovation was one for the record books! We had a great time organizing the logistics that paved the way to such a perfect day.
Our day began in the morning with brunch while Done Up Chicago and Makeup by Aga made up the beautiful bridal party at Erika’s Winnetka family home. Dana Ann Photography joined us mid-morning to snap pictures of the day’s festivities.
Erika’s jubilant bridesmaids looked on while she slipped on her beautiful gown. She was a truly radiant bride!
When everyone was ready, Windy City Limousine picked up the girls to take them to Union Station for the first look. Meanwhile, Teddy and his groomsmen took an Uber to the spot where Teddy excitedly waited for his beautiful bride.
After the first look and a few pictures, the whole crew hopped on the bus and went over to Ovation where the creative geniuses there were prepping the space for a beautiful event.
Once the flowers were set by Pollen Floral Design and the musicians from Artistrings were ready to go, the wedding party began their walk down the aisle. After a touching ceremony the newly married couple were officially introduced as “Mr. and Mrs.”!
Cocktail hour began immediately after the ceremony. Artistrings provided the background music while the ceremony space was transformed for the reception.
Once the transition was complete, the curtains opened to welcome guests in for dinner. Food Evolution catered the mouth-watering meal. During dinner, the father of the bride, best men, and maids of honor all made lovely speeches. It was clear that Erika and Teddy were surrounded by loving family and friends.
Let’s take a moment appreciate these pictures of the adorable couple (and Ovation’s Rolls Royce)
After dinner, Erika shared a special dance with her father and then the dance floor opened. The Style Matters DJs team kept the tunes bumping. During dancing, desserts from Bittersweet Pastry Shop were passed to nourish the hungry partiers.
Eventually the night came to an end at Ovation, however the party was nowhere near over! Everyone was invited to join the happily married couple to keep celebrating at Clark Street Ale House for the after party.
Erika and Teddy, it was a pleasure collaborating during this wonderful process and I wish you all the best in the future. Congratulations!!
