Real Weddings: Cayla & Sean


Cayla and Sean tied the knot Memorial Day weekend at the illustrious and charming Cafe Brauer in Lincoln Park! On their big day, Sean and his groomsmen relaxed at their apartment while Cayla, her bridesmaids, and the moms got their hair and makeup done by Diem Angie Nguyen and her team at the Courtyard Chicago Downtown/Magnificent Mile. After the ladies rode in style over to Cafe Brauer with M&M Limousine, they ventured out into Lincoln Park to take some fun shots with Chris from studioCRAFT Design, who took AMAZING photos of the gorgeous day! Kloeckner Preferred Flowers brought Cayla’s stunning color palette to life, with blue, blush, and ivory blooms in the girls’ bouquets and centerpieces. When it finally came time for the ceremony, Cayla walked down the aisle with her father to beautiful music from TVK Orchestra. The wonderful Father Jef Johnson officiated their sweet ceremony, and after Cayla and Sean officially became Mr. and Mrs., Jewell Events Catering served delicious cocktails and appetizers for Cocktail Hour, complete with a fun photobooth from Magbooth out on the North Loggia. After a delicious dinner of grilled marinated whitefish or panko crusted chicken, Cayla surprised her hubby with a Detroit Lions groom’s cake, since the groom is originally from Detroit. DJ Risky Bizness kept everyone out on the dance floor all night with classic ’90s hip hop jams. Before sending their guests off, Cayla and Sean treated everyone to a Chicago classic: Garrett’s Popcorn! Congratulations Cayla and Sean!! We are beyond happy for you and can’t wait to see what married life has in store for you!

Real Weddings: Sara & Matt

Catie Scott Studio


Ever since she was a little girl dreaming about her wedding day, Sara wanted to host her wedding in her parents’ backyard in St. Charles. After meeting the man of her dreams, Matt, at the University of Iowa, and getting engaged, they decided to turn her dreams into reality. Sara and Matt got married on an absolutely beautiful Saturday in June at Sara’s childhood church in St. Charles, Congregational United Church of Christ. In the morning, after Sara and her bridesmaids became picture-perfect with a little help from All About You Hair and Makeup Catie Scott Photography took some fun pictures of Sara and her ladies in their cute monogrammed button-up shirts before Sara shared a beautiful and emotional First Look with her dad! After their sweet ceremony, Sara and Matt got to take her dad’s Cadillac for a spin around the block before taking family photos in the church. A Touch of Class Limousine then whisked away the bridal party to the Leroy Oakes Forest Preserve, where Sara and Matt took their engagement photos. Affordable Party Tent Rentals provided four tents for dinner and cocktails, with linens provided by Grand Rental Station.  Upper Crust Catering kept the drinks flowing for Cocktail Hour as the sun set, and then served a DELICIOUS family style dinner before the bride and groom’s friends and family shared some heartfelt and hilarious toasts. Premier Entertainment started the party off right by officiating Sara and Matt’s Shoe Game, before the couple cut their adorable almond (yum!) flavored cake from Smallcakes, who also provided mini cupcakes for their guests with flavors ranging from coconut to oreo to extreme chocolate! After dancing the night away, Sara and Matt spent their wedding night at the classic Hotel Baker. Congratulations again Sara and Matt! We were so honored to be part of your special day!
