Rin and Nick stole our hearts from day one. Their adoration for each other and their gentle and kind words would put anyone at ease. They have soft and quiet spirits but that doesn’t stop them from having huge smiles. Everything Rin does and says is graceful yet strong. She’s like a beautiful ballerina. You can almost see Nick’s heart melt every time he looks her way. When we met with them last year during their planning process it seemed like Labor Day weekend 2010 would never arrive. Well, it’s finally here and we are so excited for their wedding on Sunday.
A few weeks ago we teamed up with Rin and Nick’s cinematographers from I Do Films and their wedding coordinator/floral designer, Debi Lilly from A Perfect Event, for a fun Marie Antoinette inspired engagement story at the amazing Drake Hotel in Chicago. Rin has a refined taste for classic and elegant style so we knew this French inspired shoot would be perfect for them. Debi did a wonderful job with all of the over-the-top styling including lots of delicious sweets from Vanille Patisserie, Sugar Bliss Cake Boutique and More Cupcakes. The set up included a cake bar draped in French pleated silk linen, oversized candelabras, elegant silver cake stands, macarons, cupcakes, icing shots, truffles, french pastries and much more! I am not going to lie. We couldn’t wait to indulge ourselves in all of the yummy sweets after the shoot was over. We ate cupcakes for a week! We had such a fun time and can’t wait to see all of the exciting things this weekend will bring at their wedding along with Debi and the I Do Films team.
