Barb and Dan had a chic red, ivory and gold winter wedding with stunning details. An intimate ceremony and brunch reception took place at the Morton Arboretum with close friends and family. After the ceremony and brunch, there was a designated nap time and then the festivities continued in grand fashion at the St. Charles Country Club. Seamlessly coordinated by the lovely Tiffany of Soirèe Chicago with stunning florals by Avant Gardenia. Amazing detail shots captured by Anthony Yoon Photography. Barb knew from the get go she wanted the love bird theme, so we ran with it, creating a traditional monogram from the beginning that would later appear on just about everything for their big day. We loved this color combo, it was warm and wintery all at the same time.
Barb was very into the details of her event and it shows! The Oh Snap signs were sprinkled throughout both events to encourage those snaps! We also whipped up one our signature seating boards for the ceremony brunch to let guests know where they were sitting. We continued the love birds throughout all of their printed pieces, with hits of red and gold as well.
Traditional escort cards were used for the guest seating for the evening festivities. Aren’t the florals from Avant Gardenia absolutely stunning?
The menus were traditionally put together – but had a surprise twist on the back! Dan and Barbara are big karaoke fans and they encouraged their guests to take their best shot at the mic during the evening reception, how fun!
Dan’s family has a long standing olive farm back in Italy. For years their celebrations have always included olives from the family’s grove. These were jarred as the favor. We created the front label with their monogram and love birds along with a top circle label that has the Sergi family name and crest. Personal details like this are the true icing on the cake for any event.
