Real Weddings by Elevage Events: Anna and Pat

Happy Holidays Chicago Brides! We hope Anna and Pat’s beautiful wedding offers you some planning inspiration during this most wonderful time of the year.

Anna and Pat were married June 15th, 2013 at Ascension Catholic Church in Oak Park followed by a beautiful reception at the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Chicago.

The girls had a relaxing morning at Anna’s parents home – where Eric from Allori Photography  had fun photographing the gorgeous bride.

The bridesmaids bouquets of indigo blue hydrangeas and royal blue irises and the bridal bouquet of all white peonies by ArtQuest were simple and stunning.

After the ceremony, the bridal party headed downtown for pictures around the city while the guests enjoyed an outdoor cocktail party on the terrace at the hotel.

The ballroom was breathtaking with lighting by Frost and centerpieces by ArtQuest. The silver linen and silver chiavari chairs added that perfect extra something to take the ballroom ambiance to the next level.
