Kate & Eric Make Chicago Style Weddings "Favorite 2018 Weddings"

“We are so excited for all the gorgeous weddings we know 2019 will bring,” said Emily Conley of Chicago Style Weddings. “But before we jump into the new year, we wanted to take a few minutes to revisit some of our favorite weddings featured on the blog in 2018. Our 2018 couples said [I do] in snowy winter celebrations and sunny summer affairs, at downtown Chicago venues and suburban resorts, in classic wedding dresses and culturally traditional gowns. Here we’ve gathered 10 of the top weddings (in no particular order) from our 2018 blogs so you can relive the magic and every perfect detail. Click on each couple’s name to view the full post.

Putting a big smile on everyone’s face, #3 belongs to our very own Kate Johnson of Kate Johnson Artistry. Try to keep back the waterworks, you’re going to love this wedding.

“Eric and I are a Tinder success story! On our 4th date we drove to Madison and started just really laying it all out there (which could have been a terrible idea considering we were in for a 7-hour drive)  We discovered that we had very similar backgrounds, relationship concerns, dreams, and hopes and most importantly, the things we were insecure to share about ourselves didn’t phase the other person.  At one point on that drive, we just looked at each other and laughed. And that was it.

I really think creating a magical feeling in your atmosphere is the foundation of a great event so choosing the perfect décor was super important to me. For the ceremony, all I wanted was an aisle flooded with candles and Taylor & Co provided almost 200 of them. We said our vows beneath a floral arch created by Navjot Designs and incredible draping from Art of Imagination.  Later on, the reception was magic. Navjot created a one of a kind event complete with flowers, butterflies, a seven-foot tree in the middle of the room, and a massive LOVE sign on the dance floor. The food was yummy and everyone danced the night away. We were the last to leave the reception. A party to remember is what we wanted, and it’s exactly what we got. We are so fortunate.”
