From the moment we met Carrie and Jason, we knew just how special cerebrating their love would be; and boy, were we right! This sweet, joyful, and very organized pair hosted an epic party. We are so grateful they included us!
The day started at Carrie’s parents’ beautiful home. The girls were getting all dolled up by the very talented team at Elle Artistry. While getting ready, the ladies enjoyed a delicious breakfast and lunch prepared by Paramount catering.
Soon, Victoria from Sprung Photo arrived and began to capture the magical photos featured in this post. It was then time for Carrie to slip into her fabulous wedding gown! Fun Fact: Carrie’s wedding gown was the same gown her mother wore to her wedding! The dress was redesigned by the amazing Elda de la Rosa.
Meanwhile, downtown at Allegro Chicago, our groom and his groomsmen were getting all dressed up and ready for the day. Once fully ready the gentlemen were whisked away by Windy City Limo to join the ladies.
Once everyone was together, it was time for a very special moment. Carrie and Jason shared their first look in the garden. They soaked up this sweet moment before it was time to hop back on the trolley to capture some group photos around the Art Institute of Chicago.
While the wedding party captured these amazing shots, the vendor team was hard at work bringing their ceremony and reception to life at the already stunning Bridgeport Art Center Sculpture Garden. Steve’s Flower Market added gorgeous blooms and a very epic birch Chuppah. Art of Imagination installed magnificent draping and lighting to really set the mood!
The group then made their way back to Bridgeport Art Center to get Carrie and Jason married! Our ceremony musician, Jon Sherman played sweet melodies on his guitar as the processional began. Rabbi Max Weiss made sure their ceremony was meaningful, romantic, and perfect!
Once the deal was sealed it was time to start the celebration! Cocktail hour was up first where guest enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and delicious drinks.
Dinner kicked off with a surprise song by Carrie and Jason’s family members! Heartfelt toasts were given in honor of the bride and groom while everyone enjoyed another wonderful meal by Paramount. Our couple cut into a delicious and adorable cutting cake provided by Bittersweet!
Once everyone was happy and fed, it was time to break in the dance floor. The Replays brought the room to life and kept the dance floor going all night long! If anyone needed a break from all the dancing, ILovePhotoBooth was there to capture the fun.
Carrie and Jason, it was such an honor to be a part of your amazing wedding day. We wish the two of you a lifetime of love, happiness, and countless days that are just as special as the day you wed.
