In March we partnered with Brix Catering and The Guest House Hotel to plan a decant event for our fellow Chicago event/wedding planners. Brix created an amazing menu for the evening that was absolutely delicious and Molly Dooker Wines was so nice to sponsor the event and provide a three course wine pairing. If you have not checked out this wine from Australia you are missing out. We of course could not have put together this event without the gracious sponsorship from Halls Rental, for providing all the rentals for the event. Nuage Designs for providing the linens for the evening, we just love the sequins linens! Vanilla Patisserie for providing us with the delicious desserts and providing each of our guests with macarons in their gift bags. Sylvia Stremming Design for designing the evenings invitation and menu card and Chicago Style Wedding Magazine for being our media sponsor and providing all attendees with a magazine. A special thank you to Ozzie at Gromeza Floral Design for helping us with the floral for the event and for being a great collaborating partner.
For the design I really wanted to play of the charm that the hotel already offers with sliding wood doors and the gorgeous chandelier we decided to use a cooper sequins linen and pair it with a navy blue napkin and seat cover, and the room just popped and came to life. The greenery being elevated above, as if it was free floating was the perfect touch. Taper candles and fur on the back of the chairs was the perfect touches to give this room a glamours feel. This room at The Guest House is great for a small intimate wedding or even a private dinner.
A special thank you to Roots of Life photography for capturing it all for us.
