We met bride Rachel at the Martha Stewart Weddings Party and were instantly impressed with her personal style. It was the dead of winter in Chicago, and she looked effortlessly pulled together. This was a trait we’d come to realize is just a part of her nature, and just one of the million reasons why we absolutely adored working with her.

Rachel described her dream wedding as “preppy, sophisticated and elegant” — three adjectives that we think came through in spades on June 6, 2015. From the tiniest details on her print pieces created by Color Me Carla, to the overall look and feel that her guests experienced when walking into the reception in the Chicago Room at the Chicago History Museum, all the vendors she chose came together to bring her vision to life.
