Glamorous + Modern Chicago Wedding

Eric and Mike’s Chicago wedding could be straight out of the pages of Town and Country. Held on the 17th floor of the Public Chicago hotel, the couple opted for an intimate gathering of just 20 close friends and family, and they went all out for those lucky enough to garner an invite! Festivities included a pre-wedding dinner and drinks, ladies’ and gentlemen’s outings, and a ceremony and reception full of love and laughter. Eric and Mike chose classic tuxes and shirts by Hugo Boss Black Label, Lanvin and Escada, and we love the playful touches of the Ralph Lauren bow ties. Following their vows, the couple hosted an intimate, seated dinner that wowed guests, starting with the ombre yellow-to-white floral arrangement–designed by Jessica Griffin of Botanicals–running the length of the table and ending with sliced cake prepared by the pastry chef at Public Chicago, who also set up an indulgent dessert bar with takeout containers so everyone could enjoy a late-night sweet snack. Elizabeth Tulipana of Anticipation Events kept the day moving along flawlessly, and Kiri and Brett of Pen/Carlson were there to document every gorgeous part of the couple’s weekend. The love these two share is palpable, and we are completely smitten with each and every little detail and moment!
