From the bride, Megan: Even before we got engaged on October 2, 2010, I knew we would plan a fall wedding. The timing worked out perfectly, and once I had a ring on my finger, my mom and I wasted no time in getting things going! Our first booking was with Gallery 1028, a rustic yet modern loft space in an industrial area of Chicago. With the rough wood floors and white walls, we knew this would be the perfect backdrop for our organic and eclectic wedding. A close second was choosing our photographer-Clary Pfeiffer of Clary Photo. We met her for the first time when she was in Chicago to shoot another wedding, and sitting in the lobby of the Palmer House, we knew it had to be her! Her calm, sweet demeanor and truly unparalleled artistic eye made her the obvious, and perfect, choice to capture our day. Around the same time we snatched up Clary, we booked with I Do Films, the most amazing wedding filmmakers. After meeting with Lori, and then our filmmaker, Louis, I am positive that they made our wedding day look as good as it felt!
As things started falling into place, I could start to think about details-and the dress! We chose my Christos Femme lace gown after trying on only a few other dresses. The look on my dad’s face said it all… and the trunk show pricing helped to make it a reality! Because I am a graphic designer and have a small stationery company, Ruby the Fox Design, we knew paper goods would be at the forefront of the day. We commissioned an illustration from the amazingly talented Shanna Murray and calligraphy from Angelique ink. I kept the whole suite soft, organic and simple. The flowers were from the unbelievably talented Kelly Marie Uss of Fleur. When the bouquets were delivered to the hotel in the morning, seeing them was the first time I cried all day! They absolutely blew me away, the colors and textures were spot on. It was like my vision was becoming a reality and Kelly really made it happen. The colors were even better than I could have imagined!
