As a wedding planner in Chicago, the highest praise is when one of your very talented colleagues asks for your help in planning their big day. When Carli Staffa of the amazing Botanicals/HMR Designs recruited us – how could we possibly say anything but YES, YES, YES!
Carli and Michael selected the Renaissance Hotel Chicago for it’s perfectly convenient location and streamlined style that Carli could transform with her unique eye for design. A timeless palette of ivory, green and gold was woven throughout the décor. Pops of gold chevron, soft airy lace and TONS of candlelight added a feel of modern romance and texture to the room. And we couldn’t possibly fail to mention the original artwork that Carli created for her wedding day – the modern tree painting became a collaborative piece of living art when accented with paper leaves hosting messages and well wishes from all the wedding guests.
