La Di Real Wedding: Danica and Eugene

We had the wonderful opportunity to work with Danica and Eugene on there beautiful Chicago wedding.  Thanks to Jessica Johnston Photography we are able to share with you some snapshots of our couples special day!
All of the details were so simple yet stunning!

 Danica's bouquet of white and ivory was created with peonies, calla lilies, ranunculus, vendella roses and a slight collar of eucalyptus. It was beautiful!
He is our lovely Bride Danica!
The Bridal party was able to take some amazing photographs at the Elysian Hotel

The weather started with a bit of rain and fog but that didn't phase the day one bit.
Here is our Groom Eugene!  He and the Bridal party were smiling all day!
Danica and Eugene were married at the historical Holy Name Cathedral

The Reception was held at The Murphy Auditorium

This stunning cake was created by the wonderful Amy Beck Cake Design
The tables were dressed with blue linen and glass beaded chargers.  The floral was still made up of white and ivory but with a touch of pink to add some dimension to the room.

The Bride and Groom along with their guests were dancing all evening.  I love a busy dance floor!

Congratulations Danica and Eugene!

Get Ready location: The Elysian Hotel

Engagement Party

You are engaged!! 
Well the Engagement Party is the time to announce your engagement and celebrate with family and friends.  But recently I was asked what is the "correct" etiquette for an engagement party.  So here is the answer straight from the source of all wedding etiquette, Emily Posts Wedding Etiquette by Peggy Post.

Who Hosts?
The Parents of the Bride host the Engagement Party.

What kind of Party?
There is actually no standard party format.  The most popular types are cocktail and dinner parties,

Who is invited?
Generally the guest list is limited to the couples relatives and close friends.

How do you invite guests?
Written or printed invitations are normally sent, but for an intimate gathering phoned invitations are acceptable.

Do you open the gifts at the party?
Only if gifts are given by everyone should the gifts be opened at the engagement party.  After opening the couple should personally thank each guest. However, written thank you's are still required.

What type of engagement party is your family planning?
