The Clubhouse, in Oak Brook, Illinois, is committed to creating an unforgettable experience from start to finish. The classically elegant décor incorporates pops of bright colors and fun twists. It was the perfect backdrop for this beautifully bold styled shoot. Taking advantage of the signature winding staircase, the bride and groom swept up to their reception, pausing for a few photos along the way. The bride turned heads in a Paloma Blanca satin gown with a grand chiffon train and a custom hairpiece. Stopping to cut their cake on their way to celebrate, they stepped into the candlelit bar where the fireplace glittered behind them. The emerald green cake was speckled in gold and bright blooms. A King’s table was set for the wedding feast and delicate gold pieces added sparkle to this dramatic look. Guests sat at tables nearby dressed in champagne golds and classic dark woods, topped with personalized menu cards with touches of emerald green. More vibrant flowers in antique gold vases tied the whole room together to complete this intimate reception. The Clubhouse added drama, style, and fun to this perfectly polished shoot.
