Chic Wedding at Company 251

I have a confession to make… I’ve been keeping this styled shoot a secret for forever!!! (Since March, in fact!) But it was for good reason, since one of my favorite wedding blogs 100 Layer Cake wanted to feature it! The post is finally live, and I’m sooo excited to share all the pretty with you today. 

Back before COVID hit, I teamed up with the most AMAZING Chicago wedding vendors to put together a styled elopement shoot at Company 251. The theme was crystalline chic. We dreamed of going a little outside the box for this one – the team used pastel hues, dried bleached florals, and organic touches like rose quartz crystals to create a contemporary, shimmery vibe.

I could go on forever but to sum it up, the results are absolutely STUNNING! I’ll let the images below speak for themselves 🙂 Thank you to the talented vendor team for making this dream a reality, and thank you 100 Layer Cake for sharing the beauty on your blog!!
