The always-amazing Emilia Jane Photography was there to capture all of the fun!

Brideside Dresses No Drama

Chicago’s newest wedding venue, The Bank on Broadway, was the setting for our day of fashion with Brideside! Kristina from Vision of Elegance Events created gorgeous bouquets, perfect for the soft and sparkly Brideside dresses and a fabulous bridal gown from Alyssa Kristin. The ladies are all chic and stylish with beautiful hair and makeup from Hollibeauty and Joanna B. Artistry.

Brideside brought some amazing gowns to the set, each more perfect than the last. But my favorites were definitely the new Altar Ego gowns from Kelly Faetanini that pair long skirts with chic cocktail dresses, especially since you can mix-and-match colors! The mauve top and slate skirt combo had me at hello, and the floaty Kinzie/Chicago combination is to die for in ivory!

I’m still swooning over the stunning tabletop design by Vision of Elegance Events. She paired the elegant farmhouse table, glassware, and tableware from Tablescapes with the most lovely centerpiece in shades of ivory and pink, a silk runner from Silk & Willow, and delicate vintage pieces from Nimblewell. And check out the spectacular garland trailing down the dramatic staircase at The Bank on Broadway!
