Natalie & Charlie

From the flamingo theme to pink and peach balloons, there’s something whimsical about this wedding! Natalie and Charlie met at the College of Charleston. Natalie loved how Charlie could always make her smile, and Charlie admired her self-confidence. Ovation in Chicago, IL seemed like the perfect venue for this lighthearted couple’s big day.
Bridesmaids wore cream chiffon dresses and carried vibrant bouquets. Colorful boutonnieres popped against the groomsmen’s modern blue tuxes. Natalie wore a vintage-inspired beaded gown by Jenny Packham. The couple exchanged vows in front of a ribbon-wall arch adorned with greenery, then guests were welcomed into an industrial-chic reception space with flamingo escort cards, wood tables and bright floral and gold centerpieces. A wall of suspended balloons in pink and peach hung over a pink ombre wedding cake with a flamingo cake topper, setting a fun celebratory scene for the evening!
