An engagement that began with a sparkly ring placed perfectly on top of a cupcake lead to a beautiful wedding day at the Morton Arboretum. Ibby and Evan’s wedding day took place in the western suburbs of Chicago of Naperville and Lisle. The morning began at one of my favorite hotels, the Hyatt Lisle. The panoramic suites feature floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the gardens and grounds of the Morton Arboretum, the setting for their elegant garden soiree.
Ibby paired her lace wedding gown with rose gold accessories and shoes. Her bridesmaids wore romantic Jenny Yoo dresses, each with a slightly different style. The ladies carried the most beautiful bouquets, hand made by Wallflower Designs. The gentlemen wore navy suites (my favorite!), customized suspenders, and patterned ties from The Tie Bar.
The couple had a traditional ceremony in the most beautifully lit sanctuary. The high ceilings and abundance of windows brought the outdoors in, and almost made you feel like you were outside. After exchanging vows in front of their closest friends and family, the newlyweds and their wedding party boarded their trolley and took a drive around the Morton Arboretum together. It should be mentioned that it was a rainy day, and while we were stocked and ready with umbrellas, we hardly needed them. The rain seemed to stop at every perfect moment and we were able to take many beautiful photos of Ibby, Evan and their wedding party. After a few final moments in the Hedge Gardens, the happy couple were ready to get the party started. Everyone shared a delicious meal together followed by dancing and a special appearance by Tommy the Titan, their alma mater’s mascot. We couldn’t have asked for a much better day. Ibby and Evan – thank you both for everything! We had the best time working with you at your Morton Arboretum wedding day. Congratulations!
