Chicago Summer Wedding at Cafe Brauer

There’s no better place on earth than Chicago in the summer, and no more beautiful spot in the city than Lincoln Park! The park’s stunning Cafe Brauer was the setting for Nina and Graeme’s beautiful wedding, in a lovely and unique palette of dove, lavender, and shades of purple. The fresh palette was a perfect match for the season! Bridesmaids chose their own dresses from Nordstrom’s Wedding Suite in shades of deep purple and gray, and their bouquets from Scarlet Petal also featured blooms in varied shades of purple–a lovely and unique look! Both ceremony and reception were held in Cafe Brauer’s Great Hall, and Five Grain Events transformed the room during cocktails from stately, classic ceremony to colorful and chic reception where guests danced the night away to the Stephanie Rogers Band. We love every little detail of this classic Chicago wedding from Shane Welch Photography!
