Chicago urban rustic wedding with Sandra Armenteros Photography

The Haight is a hip warehouse that is also an incredible venue for a Chicago urban rustic wedding. When my brother and his fiance, Annalise, were searching for a wedding reception venue, they were sold on The Haight before they officially even toured the space. It fit their desire for a chic and rustic design perfectly and we were thrilled when they chose to work with our Associate Coordinator, Megan, in bringing the day to life!

Since their last name is Dum, they played up the name in several different aspects of their reception. For instance, their head tables were the letters D, U, and M instead of your traditional numerical numbers, and then all of their bridal party introduction songs contained some kind of “dum” in the lyrics. Clever, right?!

There were so many personal touches throughout the wedding from the custom signs to the gorgeous lettering by the bride herself! Because the space itself was so rustic and gorgeous, there wasn’t a need for much decoration other than the personalized touches they had and some incredible flowers. The long farmhouse tables were adorned with gorgeous blush florals and greenery from Town & Country Gardens. With romantic cafe lighting throughout the space, the vibe was intimate and full of love and warmth!

Taking a trip outside Indiana for a Chicago wedding is always fun, especially when it’s your brother’s! And when you get to work with incredible Chicago based vendors, including the wonderful Sandra Armenteros Photography, it’s even better.

Enjoy!

A fall navy, gold + green wedding with Ivan & Louise Images

Libraries are an incredible venue for a wedding. There is something so romantic and magical about getting married in a historic library because they are rooted in the tradition and history of a city. The Indiana State Library is not only gorgeous, but it was established in 1825 so it is rich in history. Lauren + Ron held their ceremony at the library, complete with a bagpiper!

Their fall navy, gold and green wedding was just beautiful. The ceremony space didn’t need much because it was so grand in itself. Instead, the focus was on the reception, which was held at The SpeakEasy in Broad Ripple. This venue is a hip, industrial space perfect for a modern wedding.

The decor for Lauren + Ron’s wedding was simple, yet elegant. Everything was gold and green and lux. Greenery in the centerpieces and leaf place settings added a fresh element to the dark space. Their wedding favors were jars of local honey that were displayed on one of the venue’s makeshift bookcases made out of crates. Just one of many unique spaces The SpeakEasy offers. And custom signs and chalkboards hand lettered by the bride herself, were created to point guests in the right direction!

When you scroll through their images from Ivan & Louise you see just how much these two love each other. The way Ron looks at his new wife is with so much love and adoration. Congratulations again, on a gorgeous wedding and an even more beautiful marriage to Lauren + Ron!
