The stylized details of the eclectic whimsy photo shoot brought together so much of what Chicago is all about. The venue at Low Res Studio is full of eclectic aesthetic elements ranging from the vintage photo booth and graffiti laden walls to the speaker-box accent wall and urban single strung Edison bulb lighting. These pieces brought the urban-hipster elements together seamlessly and were touched with a bit of romantic whimsy by designer and planner Tionna Van Gundy of Wedicity.
Love is beautifully displayed in the whimsical aspects of the bride’s gown from Mignonette bridal. A long A-line style tulle skirt and with a nude, flower-adorned piece were brought together by gold accents within the headpiece and earrings. The bride had a naturally glamorous look that professional make-up artist, Mandy Farmer, had the opportunity to highlight with hints of shine in the use of gold eye shadow and a well-mixed pink lip color. The groom’s suit was a traditional navy blue from The Groomsman Suit and popped with muted tones of mustard yellow in the bow tie and pocket square along with brown accessories in the shoes and suspenders.
Bringing the eclectic nature of the venue together with the whimsy and true beauty of this stunning real couple, the table decor was highlighted with accents of vintage pieces ranging from the early-1900’s flatware to the assorted goblets from Dish & Decor Vintage Rentals atop navy-blue shantung runners from Windy City Linen. The sweetheart table was arranged in front of the speaker-box accent wall to show off the venue’s unique design elements and textured walls.
The floral arrangements and bouquet by Blossoms & Branch were accented with gold roses, mustard billy balls, and blue thistle to achieve an overall textured appearance. Centerpieces were flanked by mustard colored candlesticks to add a little romance to the already vintage-eclectic look. The custom hand-drawn stationery suites, menu cards, and escort cards from Design Voyage were inspired by the floral arrangements in colors of gold and navy blue. Tables were completed with floral lollipop favors from Chicago-based baker Flour & Fig.
