Today’s wedding from Artistrie Co, LOLA Event Productions, and Avant Gardenia features a ceremony scene that’s just about as dreamy as we’ve ever seen. Bright white walls, ivory paper lanterns, and warm candlelight set the perfect tone for Dea and Sai’s wedding, while accents of purple and grey add a pop of modern pizzazz we can’t resist.

From the photographers, Artistrie Co: Dea and Sai’s Prairie Production wedding had me smiling over and over again. The day was filled with hugs, smiles, laughter and lots of love. I loved working with these two for their urban engagement session, and have been looking forward to the wedding day ever since. With coordination by LOLA Event Productions, flowers by Avant Gardenia and catering by Paramount Events, I knew it would be a picture-perfect celebration!

Whimsical and romantic in style, Dea described her wedding vision as a fairy tale, and it was just that. I loved the purple color palette in the bridesmaids BHLDN dresses paired with the men’s classic suits and plaid purple ties. The flowers by Avant Gardenia were picture-perfect, and paired beautifully with the whimsical style. After Dea and Sai’s special first look moment, we explored the West Loop area surrounding Prairie Production. As per our lovely bride’s request, we found a few colorful graffiti walls to use for portraits with the wedding party.

After portraits, we arrived to Prairie Production for the festivities. Their candlelit ceremony was surrounded by friends and family. The setting was incredibly beautiful and romantic. After reading their handwritten vows to one another, the crowd applauded the newlyweds as they became husband and wife. Guests enjoyed Indian-inspired hors d’oeuvres, homemade Italian cookies, and signature cocktails inspired by the bride and groom. For dinner, Paramount Events created a menu that blended Dea and Sai’s two cultures, presenting guests with Indian and Italian-inspired cuisine. The meal was delicious! After some heartfelt toasts, Dea and her bridesmaids changed into saris and the dance party began! Everyone was on their feet in celebration. It was a fun night for all!
