The Chez is a blank slate that is ready to be turned into the wedding venue of your dreams! We were lucky enough to be a part of another fabulous shoot with some amazing vendors from the Chicago land area. The Chez Chicago is the perfect backdrop for bright pops of color. The simple yet modern loft space features clean white walls, floor to ceiling windows, and a gorgeous glass staircase perfect for photo ops.

Jennifer of Jennifer Roberts Weddings was the master mind behind the elegant affair. Here is, in her own words, the inspiration behind this shoot:
"My vision for this styled shoot began with my longing to design an elegant and timeless styled wedding shoot. During a visit to BBJ Linen, a piece of fabric that caught my attention became the inspiration and cornerstone for my mood board. This luxurious purple Victorian Velvet linen was so rich and stunning, I knew right away that I wanted to pair it with champagne gold. A gorgeous sequined gold runner was the perfect compliment. To balance this royal color palette, I selected gold pearl chargers and champagne flutes with copper flakes. When it comes to a table scape, sometimes less is more and keeping the table scape items to a minimum helped to make the centerpiece and the intricate gold lace details stand out as the focal point.
Chez Event Space was the perfect venue for shooting this project. Chez is a very elegant, modern space excellent for a wide variety of events. It is actually like a blank canvas ideal for creating unlimited visions. Purple and champagne gold perfectly complemented this clean, white space.
Our styled wedding shoot took place on a beautiful Chicago summer day. The very talented Alex of Alexandra Lee Photography arrived excitedly and ready to capture all the details. The soft, natural light coming through the giant windows created a beautiful glow all around this magnificent venue. We could not stop gushing over the gorgeous invitation suite with matching menus and place cards designed by Ceci New York. The intricate lace details remarkably portrayed a romantic design which beautifully foreshadowed the table linen and runner.
Bittersweet Pastry Shop provided a classy, crystal-adorned wedding cake. This cake perfectly fit in with our shoot’s theme! Dilly Lily did a beautiful job creating seasonally colorful centerpiece and wedding bouquet. There is nothing like a variety of gorgeous blooms put together in a simple yet sophisticated style. Simply Luxe Bridal provided a stunning wedding dress and exquisite accessories. Any classic brides will fall head-over-heels in love with this magnificent Rosa Clara Fall/Winter 2018 dress. To complete our couple’s elegant look, XEDO sent a refined and exquisitely-tailored tux from the Daymond John Collection. Kayla Consolo, Deco Adamo’s owner and makeup artist, and Tamara Holden of Tamara Holden Hair both did an incredible job making sure that our bride looked absolutely stunning. Blakely and Antonio were our bride and groom. This couple was fun and easy to work with.
