Our beautiful real bride Lillian was wed to Joe on the 15th of October 2021 in Chicago, Illinois. The Harvest Bible Chapel was decorated with bold florals and woody pieces which were all captured beautifully by wedding photographer Jaymi Nichole.
Lillian wore a timeless gown by Sarah Seven. The simple clean lines of this dress really helped keep the attention on the veil. Inspired by Hailey Bieber’s veil, Lillian wanted bold lettering to really make a statement. It took lots of trial and error, but in the end our wonderful embroiderer settled on an applique technique which gave just the effect this American bride was after! The bespoke Italian tulle ‘Delphine’in ivory read “My one and only”, a reference to this couples endless dedication to each other as they are each others first and forever partners.
To continue this love story, in place of a cake there was pie to reference their first date at Giordanos Pizza. There were cannolis and coffee from places Joe had worked when the couple first met in college. Joe’s father officiated the wedding while Lillian used a piece of her Father’s shirt to wrap her bouquet, which was an imitation of her Mother’s, as he is no longer with us.
The bridesmaids wore a beautiful collection of muted tones. Each dress was different to showcase the range of different personalities amongst them and how much Lillian loved them for their differences.
