Classic Chicago Gold Coast Wedding

Erica and Alex started their big day with the most peaceful and lovely ceremony at Lincoln Park’s Saint Clement Church and ended with a fabulous dance party to the tunes of Connexion Band in the Gold Coast’s Germania Place. We adore the chic red, black, and gold color palette with floaty candy apple red bridesmaids dresses from Bella Bridesmaid and classic gold chiavari chairs in the stately ballroom. Personal details abound, such as the favors from Naper Nuts & Sweets paying homage to their high school jobs to the Ohio State cufflinks in tribute to their alma mater and the Nike Sky-his worn by the ladies to dance the night away! Each beautiful image from Tamara Gruner Photography has us smitten!
