Melissa + Taylor

Melissa and Taylor were such a kind and loving couple to work with!  The details of their July 11th wedding were planned out perfectly.   Even when it sprinkled the day of their wedding they walked into the space glowing and smiling taking it all in stride and enjoying every moment.  We were so happy they chose to have their family and friends enjoy the Ultimate Photobooth!   See below for some of their favorite shots and their thoughts on the day!  

"Melissa and I are both Chicago transplants within the last several years, but have quickly come to love this city and call Chicago our home.  We both grew up in different parts of the country and have family and friends from both coasts, and frankly, all over the world.  Given we knew we would have so many out of town guests, we knew we wanted our wedding to be a reflection of our home, but also of us.  Greenhouse Loft provided the perfect canvas to showcase the best of both.  In fact, it was a very quick decision for us.  I proposed to Melissa on the last night of our winter vacation, we flew home the next day (Sunday), and by the following Monday, we had toured and booked the venue!"

"Jamie at GHL and our event vendors (Christen at Big Delicious Planet - Catering and Megan at Pistil & Vine - Florist) did an incredible job arranging the space for our wedding.  Melissa and I have a style that’s best described—in the word’s of Melissa—as “simple but striking.”  The clean lines of GHL with the incredibly beautiful arrangements by Megan created an atmosphere that countless guests acknowledged as being the best wedding venue they have ever visited.  A few of our guests are now on a mission to actually recreate the floral centerpieces!  The combination of our personalized ceremony officiated by Rev. Bruce Otto, the delicious food and drinks provided by Big Delicious Planet and the eclectic music by Emily from Toast & Jam created an experience that our guests continue to rave about.  The wedding was truly a whirlwind, and we can’t wait to see the photos and video from Victoria Sprung and Mike Hendzel’s amazing teams to revisit all of the details. Steve’s Ultimate Photo Booth was a huge hit, and was a real bonus for our family and friends.  Steve's portraits are really tremendous, and we are so glad we were able to have someone as talented as him at the wedding."

"Melissa and I set out to create a timeless event that captured the best of us and the best of our home, and without a doubt, the team at Greenhouse Loft and our team of vendors accomplished that goal."

"P.S. One of the main reasons we chose GHL was the ability to have an outdoor wedding and cocktail reception on site.  Unfortunately, we had a bit of rain on our wedding day, forcing us to move the ceremony indoors.  While we had a lot of trepidation about this happening, we were amazed with how beautiful the space was inside for the ceremony and how seamless the event was moving from ceremony, cocktail reception to dinner and dancing.  In fact, it was in a way fortunate as (1) it’s good luck if it rains on your wedding day and (2) it was so hot outside that I believe everyone appreciated the air conditioning!"

We hope you enjoy Melissa and Taylor's portraits as much as we loved having them at Greenhouse Loft! Thanks to our awesome vendors for a great evening!
