Urban Chic Black and White Wedding (Chicago)
Melissa and Darrell celebrated their love story together in the heart of Chicago at City View Loft. Melissa met Darrell through mutual friends when she traveled to Atlanta for a vacation. The couple traveled constantly to continue to nurture their relationship, and they fell head over heels in love. Darrell proposed and of course Melissa said yes.
Melissa grew up in Chicago and wanted to say “I do” in her home town surrounded by all of her friends and family. They loved the idea of having a city wedding and City View Loft has an incredible view of the skyline. Melissa and Darrell fell in love with the space, with all of the exposed brick, industrial charms, and natural woods. The inspiration for the decor and design at their wedding, was heavily influenced by New Orleans where Darrell grew up.
Black and white stripes with a splash of cranberry red was their chosen palette.The small details of personalized menus designed by Studio M Creations, mirror statement pieces for the guest book and seating chart (Reenie Rose), upside down parisols, streetlight lanterns, and their wedding logo projections, all came together and created a stunning reception area.
