From FYP Creative Manager Dianna—
Grab a Glass, Adrienne and Ethan got married!
You know you have cool friends when they hand you a glass of champagne for during the ceremony. Yes, I had enough by the end to toast the couple down the aisle—it was getting close. Cheers to two witty, fun and very generous close friends. You are beautiful and so was your big day!
First big shout out is to Found Light Studios. I am in awe of the wedding images I’ve been stalking. Alain and his second shooter captured so many candid and lifestyle moments. Seriously, these images need to be in a magazine. They are so timeless and will be beautiful for years to come. Highly recommended for anyone’s big day!
LOLA Event Productions crushed it with the decor. It was was clean, simple yet earthy. With the modern white canvas of the venue, it was easy to flourish the space with luscious greenery and keep an airy open feel in the space. Flowers by Exquisite Designs were complemented with modern hints of gold metal geometric wire chairs, and marble tile nameplates.
We added some personal touches with custom wedding coasters stamped with a gorgeous and contemporary gold foil imprint. I helped the bride design her own graphic in her wedding theme, which was super fun. Then, we uploaded her custom wedding motif to the coasters with the help of the design team here at ForYourParty. These wedding coasters were both useful and adorable. They gave a little extra 'umph' to the cocktail standing tables. Plus they last through multiple drinks, so double whammy!
My friends have cool jobs. Ethan works with beer, enough said. Begyle Brewing Co. is an awesome local brewery located in the Ravenswood area here in Chicago. Side note, if you are in the area check it out. They have beer tours, you can BYOF and play games while chugging beers. They are often at local fests and can be found at other local bars on tap (or in a can, who cares). Adrienne has a cool job too, sometimes she plays with dogs.
Between yummy classic champagne cocktails and craft beer, our glasses were never empty. Also, the bar lines were never long, way to go bar staff! We sipped our pretty drinks on beautiful cocktail napkins with a full left-side bleed geometric design which coordinated with the coasters. Things need to match, ok! ForYourParty makes it so easy by being able to save uploaded graphics for another product or, better yet, an actual copy-to-product feature that does the work for you.
Who likes party favors! I like party favors! Not only did these custom can coolers disguise our drinks while walking across town (just kidding, that’s illegal) but they were an awesome take-home gift that I will actually use again. Love me a koozie!
I didn’t even talk about the food! What a great night, filled with great memories!
