Big City Bride had the honor of planning the Chicago Market Mixer with the Knot wedding network once again. Every year the Knot hosts a party to bring together the best Chicago wedding vendors to actually enjoy a party (rather than work it.) Your favorite Chicago wedding planners created a dream event for those who love wedding trends, specialty wine and great live music. The theme was luxuriously crafty – using centerpieces and accents of paper flowers, mismatched frames and wine crates in eclectic arrangements to pop in the neutral space.
Big City Bride and the Knot chose City Winery as the Chicago venue for the event. Located on Randolph Street in the hub of exquisite restaurants, City Winery is the newest hip place to dine, drink, see a concert and to host an event. The private space sometimes used as a concert venue works perfectly for events. The raised wrap around bar and substantial stage suggest it’s built for a party! City Winery Chicago served up watermelon and wine cocktails and food stations perfectly paired by the sommelier at the wine bar.
For decor we chose to highlight paper flowers to go with our luxuriously crafted theme. We are so excited about the potential of paper flowers to become a lasting trend, beloved for their ability to be customized, reused, cost effective and fresh year round! Rustic touches of wooden tables, benches, wicker furniture, burlap and lace completed the design.
Guests enjoyed new takes on the photobooth concept with the highly interactive Action Booth that captures guests in motion for some of the funniest photos you’ve ever seen! Seperately, a green screen photowall put guests on the new cover of the Knot magazine – a dream for any wedding enthusiast.
The Knot Market Mixer was a huge success and a great way to explore new decor and see some of Chicago’s greatest wedding vendors! Big City Bride is so grateful they were able to partner with the wonderful ladies at the Knot magazine to put the event together.
