Save the Dates, Chicago Style

Save the Dates, Chicago Style

We LOVE, love, love working with Jenna from Clementine Ink on our client's Save the Dates for their wedding. She works one on one with clients to customize their save the dates for the couple's style and personality and colors of their weddings. I recommend Save the Dates are sent out 6-8 months in advance of the wedding. I also recommend clients include the information for booking hotels for the wedding as well as the couple's wedding website where guests can get all travel details and read about the couple and their wedding party. Below are some of my favorites.

Chicago Wedding at River East Art Center and Holy Name Cathedral

We LOVED Morgan and Mike's wedding last fall at the Holy Name Cathedral and River East Art Center. Elizabeth Anne Designs featured it on their wedding blog last week and we wanted to share on our own website too. Morgan and Mike's favorite season is Fall and they embraced that in their wedding day details. Who does not love a fall wedding in Chicago? Enjoy!

Maria and Mark Michalak

Being from out of state, I did not know where to begin to plan a wedding in Chicago. I knew I needed help and when I met Ali I knew she would make our wedding exceptional. I was impressed from the beginning with her professionalism, organizational skills, honesty and enthusiasm. As the months of planning went by I realized that I simply don’t know what I would have done without her. Ali has an amazing ability to match locations and vendors to her clients’ individual tastes and personalities while staying within a budget. The planning process was so easy for me because Ali took care of everything.
