To create the intimate soft look for Lori & Matt’s wedding reception, we accented the urban loft setting of Bridgeport Art Center with shades of turquoise, taupe, natural wood and a wonderful candle light glow!
Upon entering, a very personal picture vignette with escort cards greeted guests. We lit the area with a soft turquoise to create a textured and magical backdrop. On either side of the table, we placed two signature birch trunks in natural pots filled with moss and curly willow accents. The nearby high-boy offered a variety of heights and we placed a vintage suitcase belonging to the bride’s grandmother to collect cards and envelopes for the couple. Additional personalization included a custom menu board and a photo tree that the guests could sign.
Within the main room, the head table doubled as a feasting table set for 22 guests down the center aisle. A wonderful glow was created down the middle of the room with strands of globe lights hung from side to side. This created an indoor/outdoor feel, and we set the lights on dimmers to create the more intimate atmosphere that the bride and groom requested.
The band was perfectly placed in front of the large windows with the gorgeous Chicago skyline in the distance. To create the perfect framing of this area, we up-lit the windows on either side. Additional lights near the bar created an inviting and energetic space for the dance floor!
