Real Wedding: Lauren + Jason

With our wedding season starting earlier each year, we find ourselves spending more time on events and less time on the blog. Once spring begins the most reliable place to view our real events will on Facebook and Instagram, with added inspiration bonus on our Pinterest page. By the way, have you followed us yet? Go do it! Some of our 2015 weddings are also making their way to your favorite wedding publications and we will share those as soon as they debut!

Meanwhile, before this blog gets quiet so that we can focus on creating beautiful weddings for our couples, Lauren + Jason’s wedding decor is just too pretty to keep to ourselves. Lauren began working with us in 2014 to bring to life her vision of an urban, feminine affair at Room 1520. The venue was the perfect blank slate, brimming with white and gray tones throughout, crystal chandeliers, in-house specialty lighting, and a vintage mirrored bar that makes a big statement.

We paired Lauren with some of the most talented decor vendors in the city and partnered with them to build a cohesive style that would come in right on budget; if there’s one thing you can say about Kate, it’s that she is very dedicated to keeping couples on track with smart spending! Well, that and she loves producing beautiful events to showcase every couple’s personality. And she loves her lists and timelines. Okay, there are a lot of things you can say about Kate.

With a vendor dream team of Field & Florist for local, breathtaking floral design, Dashwood Shop for hand lettered signage, and the Chicago Vintage Weddings team (plus some of our fab vintage rentals and candle treatments) on site to manage set up of the ceremony and reception with Food For Thought Catering, this was one special day. Building a relationship with Lauren meant to much to the process because we were able to get to know her and develop a seamless design concept over time. With any team of creative professionals working together, nothing is more valuable than having a strong connection to the client as well as to one another. We are incredibly thankful to have been trusted with the details of such a special day and are very happy for Lauren + Jason as they continue to grow together!
