Katie and Dan planned their nuptials in just four months, but these images fromÂ Two Birds PhotographyÂ show flawless touches and attention to detail that belie the couple’s short engagement! Says bride Katie, “There were three mainÂ feelings we wanted our celebration to evoke:Â a classic feel, a cozy environment, and a fun atmosphere.” We think it’s an absolute success, starting with the venue, Chicago’sÂ The Rookery. “It isÂ such an amazing space with an incredible history that isÂ deeply intertwined with the city,” says Katie. “Both grand and cozy.” From there, the couple looked to Exquisite Designs for florals that would accent the existing decor, including white roses, anemones, ranunculu, sweet peas, and hydrangeas. Â In keeping with the chic, sophisticated feel of the day, bridesmaids wore black dresses by Amsale. Katie’s lace Rafael Cennamo gown from Dimitra’s bridal salon is stunning, and we love the edginess her black Jimmy Choo heels provide. Vintage decanters from Rent Vintage Chicago add a sparkle to the reception’s cream and gold decor, as does the gold bride and groom topper set on the cake from Sweet Mandy B’s. How we adore this elegant affair!
