We are looking forward to Gina and Josh's wedding coming up this fall. They wanted to incorporate their classic Chicago neighborhood in their engagement portraits and save-the-date cards, and Wedding Creativo Photography owner Giorgio had a lot of fun going around with this lovely couple on this beautiful spring day. Afterwards, we custom designed a wine and cream color save-the-date postcard, with a back side clover motif that mirrored the clover design in the staircase in the photo.
Happy Mothers Day! Be sure to take time off from wedding planning to give mom a fist-bump today. We are too!
Michelle and Mathew are a very sweet couple that met while traveling in one of the most awe-inspiring places in the world. With Machu Picchu in Peru as the setting, who would not fall in love? So, this couple incorporated some Peruvian wedding traditions into their special day.
We started out by taking advantage of the blooming trees for some romantic spring wedding portraits. Then, at The James Hotel the ceremony was performed by officiant Anita Vaughan, who shared the tale of their lives and love story. Afterwards, an intimate gathering of family and friends dined at the hotel's restaurant David Burke's Primehouse. At the dinner table we were charmed by with the bicycle theme place cards, Vosges chocolate gifts, and incredibly detailed Machu Picchu wedding cake designed by TipsyCake.
After the wedding, inspired by the reception bicycle detail and their purple-pink wedding colors, we designed this "Thank You" card for the newlyweds.
Chicago wedding photographers Wedding Creativo Photography is located downtown, so of course many of our couples love to go to sites with skyline views for their portraits. Here are some of our recent favorite wedding pictures with beautiful Chicago skyline views.
Theresa and Octavio are service industry professionals, so we were excited to see how they would use Creativo Loft for their wedding. They are also fortunate to have very creative people in their family.
The couple went with the natural warm tones of our space, with our burgundy and cream draping and champagne table overlay linens. The bride's sister and friends came in the day before to set up the DIY table centerpieces, place cards, and accent decor. The bride's brother actually made the wood ceremony arch, which after the wedding became a nice garden piece for the couple's yard. A unique and beautiful tree motif was used on the place cards and guest gifts to match the golden tree cake topper.
In addition to the wonderful DIY details, professional services were enlisted for a polished event. To officially tie the knot, one of our favorite officiants Judge Perry Gulbrandsen presided over the ceremony. The delicious cake from Swedish Bakery was topped with an heirloom cake topper from the bride's grandparents wedding. Outstanding cuisine, bar service, rentals and staffing were handled by FIG Catering. The couple also utilized some of our in-house services and decor at Creativo Loft, including our music sound system, rustic farm table, antique wood trunk, antique Venetian lantern floor lamp, iron bistro table and chairs, and champagne and burgundy accent linens. We also had the corner lounge setup with couches and antique Italian marble coffee table by our vintage upright piano. It was a lovely wedding and congratulations to the newlyweds!
Congratulations to Dave and Kim who celebrated their wedding in Geneva last weekend, and we are excited to share some highlights from their special day. Stay tuned for a full feature of this wedding in the future.
When a wedding is the first one for any family it is usually extra emotional. Moms are often just as nervous as their daughters. You might even see dad shed some tears. These families were indeed filled with butterflies and excitement for the bride and groom on their special day. It was adorable to see Jamie's father so expressive with emotion, and it is always wonderful to see parents so involved and attentive on the wedding day.
Jamie and David held their wedding at Saint Cajetan Church and reception at Harold Washington Library. Natural beauty was abound with lovely greens and vintage details to set the tone for their grand celebration.
The bride wore a spectacular Lazaro gown and statement heels from Stuart Weitzman. The reception had a wonderful balance of elegance with rustic vintage accents. A few items were made by the bride, or special collected pieces including the cute Mr. and Mrs. chair signs.
What we always remember most at all weddings are the unique spontaneous moments, and at this one...they were filled with songs. Read on below to see how Jamie and David's wedding day was at times like a real-life musical with many people spontaneously breaking out into song.
Jamie and David invited former American Idol contestant Chris Medina to their wedding and he sang at their ceremony! As it turned out a lot of people (and a bird) were inspired to sing for Jamie and David. They enjoyed not one but two spontanous group serenades in the park while we were out taking portraits. Finally, the happy couple were treated to one more surprise song at the reception, this time by their bridal party!Featured event professionals: Steuber Florist, Naples Bakery, Tone Productions DJ, Exquisite Limousine, Formally Modern Tuxedo, Bella Bianca Bridal, Wedding Creativo Photography.
