Centered Chef Wedding

Melissa + Wesley // Centered Chef Chicago


Melissa and Wesley had known each other since grade school but their groups of friends never crossed paths…that was until their Junior year of high school. Melissa wanted to attend prom with her best friend and her boyfriend. Being the thoughtful person she is, Melissa wanted her best friend’s boyfriend to have a good time at prom. So, she asked his best friend (Wesley) to be her date. Melissa says they had a great time that evening. The four of them continued seeing each other throughout that Summer. Melissa and Wesley began officially dating in June.

Eight years later, Wesley proposed during a beautiful sunset at a spot the two enjoyed visiting throughout their teenage years. On that same day, Melissa bought Wesley a watch he’d been eyeing. On the back of the watch was an inscription, “Will you marry me?” Needless to say, it was a mutual proposal.

NYE Wedding Chicago

Suzanne + Kevin // Chicago NYE Wedding


One of the many wonderful things about weddings is the ability to customize everything to the bride and groom. Suzanne and Kevin did just that in so many ways. We open their wedding trailer with a reading from their ceremony. Entitled, “A Year Ago Today”, it was a poem that Suzanne’s Grandfather had written to his wife after one year of marriage. The trailer continues with the custom cufflinks each groomsman received as a gift. Each cufflink was fashioned out of authentic sports memorabilia, catered to each groomsmen’s favorite sport and team. All of the bridesmaids wore beautiful, individually custom-designed dresses from Avail & Company. Suzanne’s Vera Wang stunner was icing on the cake! Everything was topped off with an evening of dancing, fireworks, and counting down the New Year with an awesome band/DJ music set from Larry King Orchestra. We were thankful to be a part of this talented team of vendors for one of the last weddings to take place at the River East Art Center.
