One Year Ago at the Beach

Chicago beach weddings are hard to come by and it’s hard to imagine anything more perfectly beachy than this. One year ago Big City Bride spent some time at the beach of this beautiful home. With a month-long load in we built the tent right on the beach and created a boardwalk to the family’s pool house. It was a laid back affair in the most elegant way possible. With natural elements throughout the decor, incredible lighting, an eclectic color palette and thoughtful details this wedding was one of a kind. Umbrellas, flip flops and sunglasses greeted guests for the shoreline ceremony. Frames hung from the trees around the pool deck for a fun photo booth opportunity.  Menu cards doubled as thank you notes, which were printed on paper thin wood, same as the escort cards and ceremony programs. All in all, it was an unforgetable Chicago beach wedding and Big City Bride looks back on it with so much love. It was a Chicago wedding that redefined the potential of the Windy City as a destination wedding location and Lake Michigan as the perfect beach for a wedding ceremony.
It certainly was a lot of work but it was worth every minute of the Chicago wedding planning process and month of set up. The family and the bride and groom were absolutely wonderful people and we miss working with them! Wishing them all the best as they celebrate their one year anniversary with their new baby bundle of joy!
