Being a part of Haley and Joe’s wedding last August was such an honor. From our first meeting, it was apparent what an incredible celebration of two extraordinary people the day was going to be and we loved every second of it.
Haley began her prep at the St. Jane Chicago with her sisters and mother. The ladies eased into the day with hair by the talented Rare Bird Beauties and makeup by the lovely Andie Cumber. The morning was quiet, relaxed, and reflective as Haley put on her jaw dropping dress with the help of her mother and sisters, then shared a special moment with her father. Flowers For Dreams delivered the most amazing florals and Angela Renée Photography was there to capture each precious moment and detail.
Meanwhile, Joe was down the hall also enjoying a quiet moment before getting ready and heading up to the rooftop to see his bride for the first time.
Despite the rainy morning, the rooftop of the St. Jane Chicago was the perfect private spot for Haley and Joe’s first look. With incredible Chicago views, the couple read vows they wrote to one another aloud and took some time together to savor the excitement of the day. They then headed off for photos with their wedding party and families at Artifact Events, taking advantage of all its unique space and character.
A truly magical space was created for Haley and Joe’s romantic ceremony. Flowers For Dreams designed stunning florals and lined the stairs and aisle with greenery and rose petals, I Love Lamp Lighting perfected the atmosphere with uplighting and café lights, and guests were greeted by the amazing sounds of String Theory Chamber Ensemble.
After the ceremony, guests moved to cocktail hour and on to dinner where they enjoyed always delicious bites from Hearty Boys and wonderfully touching toasts from Haley and Joe’s families.
After dinner guests moved in for dancing, which included the sweetest choreographed dance by Haley and her dad and a traditional Croatian circle dance as a nod to Joe’s family. Guests enjoyed a delightful dessert spread by Hearty Boys, a photobooth by Shutterbooth, and a packed dance floor thanks to Style Matters.
Haley and Joe, it was truly a pleasure. Congratulations again and we wish you all the happiness in the world!
