May is such a great time of year for us. The sun is out, the grass is green, and we’re back on the wedding scene from another relaxing Winter. With the cold months typically being our down time, we’re always happy when our clients come to us with a snowy engagement session in mind. With Stephanie and Brian’s May wedding quickly approaching, we stopped out to Montrose Harbor for their engagement session and had a blast kicking up some snow! It had us pumped for their wedding day for sure. Getting to know Stephanie and Brian has always been a treat. With her infectious laugh and his relaxed attitude, we can see why those two are inseparable. On the wedding day, we headed to the InterContinental Mag Mile hotel where everyone was getting ready and where the reception would be that evening. Not only was Stephanie’s dress light and airy (perfect for a Spring soiree!), but her whispy bouquet of ranunculus, roses, and anemone left a sweetly scented trail wherever she went. In an ode to the groom’s heritage, Stephanie and Brian had a bagpiper during their recessional from the famed Fourth Presbyterian which was an awesome way to kick off the party! When planning on the decor for your wedding it’s always great to work off of the existing colors and design aesthetic of your venue. We can’t help but tip our hats to Stephanie and Brian for hitting on the nail head when combining the InterContinental’s luxe gold ballroom with their color palette of navy, dark teal, and mallard green. And that chandelier!! It’s safe to say that this wedding was as epic as it was romantic. Oh May, we’re so glad you’re back.
