Oh. My. Oscar. These are just a few of the words that crossed our minds when we entered Samantha’s room and saw one of Oscar De La Renta’s masterpieces hanging in her bridal suite. We knew that Samantha + Tommy’s wedding was going to be elegant and romantic after hearing all of the amazing details during their Madison Engagement Session, but we definitely weren’t prepared for the beautiful day that would unfold. We could gush for hours about Samantha’s blush Valentino shoes and a dreamy Winter palette of ivory, pink and gold, but honestly Samantha + Tommy’s big day was so much more than that. In fact, we’re pretty sure that between the first time her dad saw her as a bride-to-be and her Park Hyatt rooftop portraits with Tommy there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. And I mean, why not stop at Chicago’s Butch McGuire’s for an impromptu pitstop after the ceremony?? It is, after all, one of their favorites and the perfect way to get the party started before heading to their Cafe Brauer reception. At the end of the day, it’s all about having a good time. We’d like to think that our high fashion bride, her handsome groom, and their perfectly meshed style of classic + chic paved the way for what was definitely one of our favorite weddings this year. #butchstobakas, you rock.
