La di Real Wedding: Kelly and Doug

This summer we had the pleasure of working with Kelly and Doug for their Lincoln Park wedding. Kelly tied all of the elements of the day together with a theme of black and white damask with a hot pink accent. Here is a snapshot of the beautiful day. All photos thanks to Malia Rae Photography.Prior to the ceremony Kelly and her maids stopped at Oz Park for some pre- ceremony shots. Here you see the hot pink accent come into play with her beautiful bouquet made by Dilly Lilly.

Oh how I love the pictures of the Groom anxiously awaiting his Bride. Here is Doug, smiling as we watches his Bride walk down the aisle at St James Lutheran, Chicago.

With a quick switch of a camera angle, Malia shows us exactly what it looks like from Dougs point of view.

And they are husband and wife!

Family photos were taken right outside on the church steps. Furry family included! Tucker, Kelly and Dougs dog was able to come for a few photos. He wore a hot pink bow to match the theme. Tucker was featured in our furry friends and family post earlier this year.

Kelly and Doug provided music and refreshments to entertain the bridal party and guests while they were taking their family photos. Everyone was in a great mood! Keenan Kamae played the Ukulele and sang along to many songs including the ever so beautiful "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"

Since Kelly and Doug's reception was just a few blocks away, the wedding party and guests chose to walk to BOKA. While the ceremony was taking place we made the walk and placed signs like this one above, along the way to guide guests to the reception.

Playing all the way, Keenan lead the walk to BOKA.

The reception was held at one of Kelly and Dougs favorite restuarants, BOKA, located at 1729 N. Halsted, in Lincoln Park.

Each table was decorated to match the theme with Black linens and a splash of Hot pink flowers as a centerpiece.

The damask excort cards were placed outside the restuarant for the guests to find their table assignment. Each card was placed nicely under a rock to keep them from blowing in the wind.

A copy of the invitation and menu card created by Andrea at Float Paperie, were placed in the menu box at the entrance for guests to preview.

Congratulations Kelly and Doug!
