Lindsey and Chris knew exactly what they wanted for their fall wedding. Their vision was clear – a wedding that was minimalist, chic, and designed with fall elegance without being overly “autumn in a pumpkin spice kind of way.” As a result, their Chicago Illuminating Company wedding became something truly special.
The Wedding’s Stationery Story
Lindsey and Chris’ Chicago Illuminating Company wedding took place in the fall. These two juggled their busy lives to celebrate their love with family and friends at this beautiful venue. Wedding planning is always a challenging feat, but one major issue Lindsey had was, in her own words, “struggling to find customized save the dates and wedding invitations that feel personalized and professional.”
Thankfully, the SEO gods at Google led her to our site, and it was a match! How awesome is that? Lindsey loved what she saw on our website and reached out about collaborating. Our aesthetics were very much in sync from our very first conversation, and it was a delight to create beautiful designs for Lindsey & Chris from start to finish.
During the process, I channeled Lindsey’s vision into a series of minimalist, sophisticated stationery designs, including everything from the invitations to the menus and signage. Even when a client likes our work, it’s important we don’t take that for granted and make sure what we end up with is true to their vision. So, we partnered closely with Lindsey and Chris to make sure everything was picture-perfect down to the finest details.
We started with some gorgeously simple and modern photo save the dates, then the invitation suite printed on our luxe cotton stock and wrapped in a belly band, plus some truly special day-of pieces, like foil-stamped napkins, personalized menus, and a gorgeous, modern welcome sign to set the tone for their Chicago Illuminating Company wedding.
While it is unique to their event, Lindsey & Chris’ invitation suite for their Chicago Illuminating Company wedding is a custom-tailored version of our Artisan suite. You can shop this invitation at the link below:
An Elegant Fall Celebration
Fall themes for weddings are always a good idea! The fall season creates a variety of great colors to work with, and Lindsey and Chris really brought nature into their Chicago Illuminating Company wedding. This was true whether it was photos taken of the couple together, the reception with its green-and-white color scheme, flower arrangements, the Chicago Illuminating Company’s tent, and more.
During their Chicago Illuminating Company wedding, Lindsey wore a timeless, halter-neck statement wedding dress. Chris also looked sharp in his stylish, dark blue suit while he went through the day alongside his beautiful bride.
The reception that followed featured a dazzling tablescape of beautifully placed glass vase centerpieces, tall candles, and a dash of greens. And as the sun set, the warm-colored string lights gave off a whimsical and chic minimalistic ambiance. More than anything, this Chicago Illuminating Company wedding was an atmosphere full of love, fun, and memories.
