Chicago’s top wedding professionals joined hosts Sarah Ryan, Editor-in-Chief, and Amy Allen, Group Publisher, for an exclusive red-carpet night at Waldorf Astoria in anticipation of the Modern Luxury Brides’ 10th anniversary celebration. Attendees enjoyed the Waldorf’s luxury surroundings as they entered the tented courtyard highlighted with a floral festooned baby grand piano from BeatMix Music and Kesh Luxury Group. An exclusive elevator whisked guests to Waldorf’s newly renovated 5th floor where each room was dedicated to a unique experience, including a sneak peak of the soon-to-open, affiliated luxury Hilton property, Conrad Hotel. This pop-up hotel experience was highlighted with video mapping of its 360-degree views and its own Chef’s culinary cuisine. Throughout the night, guests were treated to Veuve Clicquot champagne, specialty wine pairings and tastings, luxe cocktails and custom food stations by Waldorf Astoria, plus inspiration tables and decor by Kesh Luxury Group, Northern Decor, and Debi Lilly of A Perfect Event. One of the magazine’s cake spreads created by Debi Lilly came to life in the “sweet treats” room, complete with seven gorgeous white cakes and beautiful giant balloons. Takeaway photos from Bugbooth Vintage photo booth and luxury gift bags designed by Elizabeth Grace featured a custom tag announcing Modern Luxury Brides’ rebrand as Modern Luxury WEDDINGS, debuting December 2016.
