Francesca and Martin’s New Leaf Wedding

March 16th, 2015

Francesca and Martin were married at A New Leaf, the beautiful rustic space located in the North side of Chicago. Our designers at Art of Imagination were delighted to assist the lovely couple with their romantic winter wedding theme. From the custom chandelier, that we constructed in our creative studio, to the antique silver candelabras; this wedding was dripping with decadence.

One of the focal points of the space was the living archway that was up-lit on both sides. We created this green wall using custom built frames and chicken wire. The team at A New Leaf added the fresh foliage to grow vertically and give the couple’s wedding the etherial feel of romance all night long.

The custom chandelier was our absolute favorite to design detail we created for the couple. This chandelier, with over 350-crystal beads encased in a wire ball, was covered with moss and was simply breathtaking, if we do say so ourselves!

We were also able to add unique details using the existing architecture of the space. Our designers worked with the bride to turn a plain partition wall into a personalized gallery wall. We hung beautiful gold frames in a unique arrangement … it was the perfect touch of romantic against the bare wall.

To create an elegant, softer look upstairs, we draped an ivory sheer voile fabric diffused with a soft amber glow. The entrance of the space was draped with the same ivory voile fabric and swung open, creating a special entrance for the guests.

The tables were set with a beautiful contrast of ivory linens with a ruby red napkin at each place setting. The centerpieces were created by A New Leaf and the antique silver candelabras were provided by Art of Imagination. They were perfect for the romantic feel of the room. The taper candles and lighting throughout the room created the diffused candle light amber glow that we were wanting for this romantic winter wedding.
