The cozy, sun-lit atmosphere of the City View Loft in Chicago, Illinois created the perfect space for Meghan and Chris to say “I do.” This couple, with the help of their amazing planners at Five Grain Events, knocked the ball out of of the park with a one-of-a-kind urban wedding in Chicago. The bride wore an untraditional, textured gold strapless gown that blended nicely with the white florals. After the ceremony, the guests enjoyed the sweetest treats including glazed donuts and the coolest candy bar. Making sure to capture every aspect of the incredible day, The Shalom Imaginative stole the couple way for a bit to shoot some amazing shots in the in subway.
Meghan and Chris
City View Loft, Chicago, Illinois
We knew we wanted an urban, city-set wedding and we wanted to use a loft space. We love being able to call Chicago home and wanted our guests (mostly out-of-towners) to enjoy a beautiful location with a great view of the city. Luckily we found that with our venue. We wanted to created a romantic and elegant feel. Chris had a very specific look in mind which he accomplished through a custom made suit and I knew I wanted to wear gold. Our attire really set the tone for our wedding decor theme.
Seeing all our friends and family out on the dance floor during the reception was amazing. It was important to us for our guests to have a great time and spend time together. We knew we had accomplished this with all our favorite people together around us dancing.
The Couple Recommends:
Our photographers, The Shalom Imaginative, for capturing our entire wedding weekend. They made us feel so comfortable and their images were stunning. Also, our wedding coordinator, Joan at Five Grain Events. She’s a pro and we were able to let her take command of our day. It went so smoothly and she had a lot to do with that. Lastly, the Sarah Seven Chicago shop was incredible to work with. They created the most beautiful dress that I felt so great in.
