Chicago’s Salvage One has long been one of our favorite venues for industrial weddings — it’s simply the perfect backdrop for a variety of so many different styles. Beth and Brandon chose to contrast the industrial space with romantic decor and floral design, bringing on board the talented Artistrie Co., A Stem Above, and North Shore Weddings and Events to round out their vision!

From the bride, Beth: I wanted my wedding to be the most amazing day surrounded by my closest family and friends. I wanted everyone to laugh, feel the love and good energy in the room, and most of all be smiling and have a great time! It was important to me that the day felt intimate, cozy and comfortable for everyone there.

I did not have any color theme as I usually tend to love neutrals, blacks and gray. I loved the brightness and the delicateness that the white/lighter color flowers brought to the wedding. I loved Salvage One for its brick walls, concrete and romantic darker lighting and I wanted to include design that complimented that natural setting. One of my favorite pieces of the wedding were the mismatched lace table runners that my mom and I found from all over the country. We started collecting them and each one was special in its own way and I love how they pulled together the gorgeous table settings. I was also lucky enough to have my sister in law Alissa do all of the graphic design work for the wedding, so everything we printed was tied together. The invitations, to the welcome bags, to the programs all had a similar theme which I loved! She also designed a logo for us that we used on a wide range of pieces throughout the wedding. See attached for an example of the logo used on our program.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Make sure your wedding is the most amazing party you want to be at and never want to end! There are so many details, questions, decisions to be made, so try to remember to have fun with it and don’t stress about the small stuff! Also spend the most time on the details of the wedding that are the most important to you. Brandon and I knew we wanted our dance floor packed the entire evening, so the details around the music were very important to us. We found an amazing band (Front of House) and had so much fun working with the band to talk through songs and the theme for the night!

Wedding Music:
My mom found an incredible folk guitar duo from the Old Town School of Music in Chicago. They were an adorable couple and they played an incredible variety of Bob Dylan songs which we loved hearing and knew everyone in attendance would enjoy as well. “Don’t Think Twice its Alright”, “Shelter From the Storm” and “Forever Young”.

    The pictures are absolutely stunning, everything looks lovely.

    Reminds me of the cute love quote “You are inside me, you are around me, i only see you where ever I go, because there is just you and me in our universe of love”
