La Di Real Wedding: Courtney and Kevin

We would love to share with you the very glamorous wedding of Courtney and Kevin. It was a beautiful day in May, and the perfect day for their Chicago wedding. Courtney wanted a Vintage Glam look for her wedding day. Take a look! Special thank you to the photographers at StudioThisIs for providing us with these photographs to share with you today. Courtney and her bridesmaids all got ready for the big day at W City Center, Chicago. Rosie and Robyn from RBombshell Beauty were there on site to do all of the ladies hair and makeup.

Courtney was stunning in her one shouldered silhouette wedding gown by designer Anne Barge.

Before Courtney could start her day, all of her bridesmaids signed her shoes with a message. The theory is that when the night ends the most legible message would be the next Bride to be!

How beautiful is this bridal party! All of the Bridesmaids were able to pick a dress that would be flattering to their figure instead of wearing the same gown. Courtney picked a color palette of metallic and pastels and then let the ladies shop!

And we can't forget about the gentlemen. Here is Kevin and his Groomsmen posing for some shots at the W city center.

Courtney and Kevin were married at Notre Dame De Chicago.

On their way out of the church Courtney and Kevin were greeted by their guests waving hand made ribbon wands.

After the ceremony Courtney and Kevin and their bridal party traveled to Union Station for some indoor and outdoor photographs.

Love this outdoor shot!!!

All day the bridal party rode in style in a Trolley from Windy City Trolley. Look at the shades!!

Courtney and Kevin's reception was held at the modern Latin restaurant Nacional 27.

Here is my cameo bending down to lift up Courtney's train, the photographer got me!

How stunning is this room shot of the event space at Nacional 27. The restaurant was transformed to Vintage Glam with the help of Frost Lighting, Classic Party rentals linens, and floral decor by Hello Darling. As you can see there are two levels of seating, tables and booths. All centered around the circle dance floor with gorgeous chandeliers and gobos illuminating the entire room. The palm leaves were added to style the room like an old Havana marketplace.

A few close ups of the floral designs. The dining tables were decorated with vintage glass, milk glass and silver vessels. Each table was unique with its glass and flower combinations. The table numbers, menus and escort signs were all custom designed by Float Paperie.

The unique vintage vessels were filled with different variations of peonies, succulents, stock, hydrangea, ranunculus, frilly tulips, dusty miller and brunia.

The tables were lit with silver and gold mercury glass votives, as well as crystal strand votives and luminaries.

Courtney and Kevin's wedding cake was custom designed by Take the Cake. This 4-tier wedding cake was covered in pearlized rolled fondant and white sugar flowers.

Here is a closer look at the sugar flowers. Since I know you can't see inside the flavors consisted of, white lemon zest buttermilk cake with two layers of raspberry conserve/cream cheese filling and one layer of cream cheese/fresh raspberries. That's not all, they also have chocolate fudge cake filled with one layer of each, chocolate fudge, salted caramel filling and cream cheese filling.

The dance floor was filled all night long thanks to the musical styling of Fig Media!

We had such a wonderful time working with Courtney and Kevin for their Stunning Vintage Glam wedding day. We wish them happiness and health in their life together!
