Discreetly tucked away above Cartier on Michigan Ave is the stunning, old school venue that is the Woman’s Athletic Club. With it’s unique history and beautiful decor we were over the moon excited when cute couple, Lindsey + Joe, told us that this would be the location they would hosting their reception. Lindsey got ready here on her big day as well and we especially loved that no matter how hectic it got on the streets below, it was always calm + serene amongst these super old walls. After saying I Do at Holy Name Cathedral they braved the intermittent rain for photos with their wedding party at Olive Park. Afterwards, guests were led under a canopy of blush roses, cream hydrangeas, and green ferns for cocktails. This ballroom, as I’m sure you can imagine, was brilliantly illuminated by the art deco chandeliers the brides choice of crystal centerpieces were spot on for a hint of glamor. Want to treat your guests to something cute + sweet at the same time? These adorable sugar cookies with the bride + groom’s initials were placed on each table and we couldn’t help but think that it was the perfect accompaniment to wedding cake for dessert. Que the conga line and you’ve got yourself a wonderful end to the most amazing wedding day.
