Pretty Kitchen Chicago Wedding

Christopher F Photography shared with us a beautiful couple and a truly unique venue in this Kitchen Chicago wedding. Though Julia and Mike tied the knot in a traditional church, they went industrial for their reception by holding the event at Kitchen Chicago, a shared kitchen space in the city. Julia enlisted the talents of Chicago Vintage Weddings and Merci Beaucoup Floral to bring in soft, romantic elements to the reception space. Julia’s vision paid off, because their wedding is simply stunning.

The Couple: Julia and Mike

The Wedding: Kitchen Chicago, Chicago, IL

The Moments:The ceremony ended up being our favorite part of the day because we both felt as if we were the only two people there and all the guests and wedding planning stress leading up to the moment just seemed to disappear while we pledge our vows.

The Inspiration:I knew our wedding would be an urban affair when we found our industrial loft space in downtown Chicago, but I wanted to soften it up a bit. After I fell in love with a vintage-inspired lace dress, I decided to incorporate a lot of vintage style with a warm romantic color palette of mint, peach, and rose gold. My vision was brought to life by the antique vintage rentals from Chicago Vintage Weddings and the stunning floral arrangements from Merci Beaucoup Floral. Both were able to bring my Pinterest boards to life!

The Couple Recommends:Our photographer, Christopher Foltz, went above and beyond his role as a photographer and was an integral part in making our wedding day a success. His presence felt like a friend helping us out on our wedding day rather than a professional. Chris is an extremely talented photographer with an eye for light and capturing raw emotions. We also appreciated his calm demeanor, his sense of humor, and even his surprising expertise in bustling my dress with a pair of pliers!
