Baby it's cold outside, and no one knows it better than Chicago, am I right? Although Ted and Katherine's wedding took place in the fall, it has a distinctively wintery feel to it (probably because of the colder temps up north). When planning their wedding their space, the Hotel Allegro, really inspired the look and details of the event. Romantic, yet modern and funky. Katherine wanted lots and lots of candlelight to create a warm, welcoming ambiance for guests. Our favorite details? The amazing ruffled wedding dress by designer Vera Wang. So gorgeous! And check out the grooms purple suede shoes. Thanks so much for sharing Katherine and Ted, and for the images from elle rose photo.
From the bride, Katherine...
We first met on March 13, 2010 at a bar on the Northside of Chicago during the St. Patrick’s Day festivities. We immediately hit it off and became inseparable! Ted and I have been together for three and a half years (will be four this coming March!)
I borrowed the diamond bracelet I wore from my godmother along with the greek evil eye that I wore underneath my dress to ward off evil and covetous friends, family, and strangers. Also, my wedding band was molded from my grandma’s wedding ring. The diamonds and band itself are essentially her ring, just in a different form. All three of these things were very close to my heart.
The favorite moment of our event was seeing each other for the first time during the “first look”. I was apprehensive about doing the first look because I wanted Ted to first see me when I walked down the aisle. I was SO happy Laurie, our photographer, talked me through my concerns and captured it as beautifully as she did. The moment was quiet and perfect – with just our photographers and my sister as onlookers. It was truly special to have just a few minutes alone with each other before the running around and chaos of the evening began!
