Laura and Elliott’s summer wedding at the Chicago History Museum was classic understated elegance.  Ivory and green with the subtlest hints of blush and champagne – this is a design that stands the test of time.

The bride and groom exchanged vows under a chuppah that was designed to look as elegant in front of the Frank Lloyd Wright windows inside the museum as it would have looked on the terrace in better weather (heat – not rain!). The reception tables executed by Kehoe Designs held collections of low feminine arrangements in vintage styled containers and chic cande“lamp”ras hosting small dupioni shades with black piping. Finishing each place setting was a silver beaded charger plate topped with a white hemstitched napkin and custom menu and a black Chiavari chair that anchored the design in the room.

The custom made cake topper was a perfectly replicated wood carving of the bride and groom – the details were perfect down to the blue sash on Laura’s gown and the glasses Elliott’s replica was wearing.
