HOLY COUTURE! What is better than a couture gown? How about SIX of them? Give us all the Marchesa, Zuhair Murad and Inbal Dror! And the cherry on top? A different pair of wedding shoe designer BELLA BELLE'S new collection heels for each look! Chicago wedding photographer BONPHOTAGE captured this high-fashion editorial with spring in mind - wanting to evoke the feeling of new blooms and new beginnings! "To that end, we scoured the Chicago area for the most sun drenched venue and filled it with overflowing greenery to create an overgrown garden."
Wedding stationery designer PLUME CALLIGRAPHY created a beautiful invitation suite in Pantone blue which included a hand sketched illustration of our beautiful venue, ARMOUR HOUSE. WILLRETT FLOWER COMPANY created a beautiful multi dimensional floral arch to evoke the feeling of an overgrown indoor garden. By keeping all the design elements neutral in colour, the greenery is really allowed to pop without overwhelming the space.
Lynzie from BONPHOTAG tells us, "The tablescape included Pantone blue plates and gold-rimmed stemware. Delicate, organic blooms adorned the table. Balancing the formality of the flatware and table setting, we chose an elegant bone ivory velvet linen and Pantone blue plates. Set hues and winter blooms along with layered smaller arrangements balanced out the tablescape."
A huge thank you to Chicago wedding photographer BONPHOTAGE for sharing this beautiful wedding with us. Having travelled extensively and captured weddings in some of the most beautiful locations in the world, Lynzie continues to be inspired by art, different cultures, and faraway places. I have photographed weddings and engagements around the world, including Paris, Positano, Istanbul and the Caribbean. "My style is soft, romantic and elegant and my preferred medium is film. I love the creamy skin tones, richness and texture it provides."
