One of our very favorite combinations of style, vendors, and overall perfection was Martha and Alex’s wedding this past April. The couple tied the knot at The Fourth Presbyterian Church of Chicago and then continued the celebration at one of our favorite hidden spots, The Saddle and Cycle Club.

The bridesmaid’s pastel bouquets popped off their coral lace dresses perfectly while Chelsea’s bouquet of coral charm peonies, peach garden roses, blush lisianthus, […]

Jen & David were married at the Royal Park Hotel in Rochester, Michigan this past Fall.  Two things to note.  1. Yes, we do travel! and 2. Rochester is the most adorable little town!  I wish I had more time to explore the cute city. We did Jen’s sister Kate’s wedding in one of our first […]
