Erica and Brook's Autumn Wedding Celebration

We had the pleasure of photographing Erica and Brook's wedding at Greenhouse Loft this past October. They were such a sweet couple and we loved spending the day with them. The groom was kind enough to share his thoughts from their wedding day with us. We hope you enjoy looking back at their autumnal wedding celebration through Brook's point of view, accompanied by photos taken by Jamie and Eric Davis for Greenhouse Loft Photography!

In Brook's words:

From start to finish, our wedding day was filled with laughter, fellowship, and fun. Our vendors had everything taken care of in advance, so we were free to spend brunch with our closest friends. Erica then went back to our Ukrainian Village apartment to get ready and put on her gorgeous dress designed by Jane White of Palazzo. We met outside the apartment for a memorable first look right across the street. 

The rain held off until the evening, so we were able to take pre-ceremony photographs at Humboldt Park. Between the lake, the autumn colors, the flower garden, and the park, there was no shortage of lovely vistas that made for great photos. From there, it was a short drive to Greenhouse Loft for the ceremony and reception.

By the time we arrived, the venue was already adorned with vibrant, bright flower arrangements from Pollen. These centerpieces served as the perfect backdrop for a touching ceremony officiated by Anita Vaughn.

It was important for us to keep our guests together in the main room surrounded by natural light throughout the evening. The flexibility and creativity of Greenhouse Loft made this possible. A semi-circle of chairs for the ceremony gave way to dining room tables for the reception, with our dance floor in the middle.

We enjoyed a delicious, family-style autumn dinner from Big Delicious Planet, with drinks supplied by Binny's.

Underneath a romantic ambiance of Christmas-lights and candle lights, we smiled all the way through our first dance.

Then we sang and celebrated through the evening as the band Spoken Four led a high-energy dance party.

The only break from dancing was to partake in Big Delicious Planet's cake pops and ice cream bar. The dancing lasted all the way through the band's final song at the end of the night.

All of our vendors came recommended by Greenhouse Loft and they worked together seamlessly to create a stress-free evening that fulfilled everything we had ever imagined for our big day. Having so many beautiful photos from Jamie and Eric Davis will allow us to relive and treasure the memories for many years to come!
