Urban Wedding in Chicago

We all have swooned over high school sweetheart romances, but today’s love story is a first – we’re talking preschool. A three-year-old little girl’s crush on her best friend, that has now entered its happily ever after chapter with their urban wedding in Chicago. While this blue, purple and gold fete is beyond pin-worthy, it’s Felicia and Bart’s fairytale love that got us right from the start. We challenge you to find an urban wedding that screams more romance than this one. A beautiful outdoor setting at Pazzo’s 331, personal details to reflect their personalities (take Bart’s navy blue James Bond tuxedo for instance) and just the right vendors to capture the memories, enter Miss Motley Photography. One Fine Day Events and Bella Flora certainly do their part to put shades of blue and purple on the wedding palette map with gold as an on point metallic foundation.

Urban Wedding in Chicago

Felicia and Bart’s union is a result of dreams, fate and the childhood wishes of little girl in love with her best friend. Growing up Felicia’s mom always teased her about her preschool friend. Every day after preschool, Felicia would come home and tell her that she was going not only going to marry Bart, but they were going to have 13 children. Felicia often thought her mother made the story up because after all, how could a three-year-old already be planning a family? Fast forward 15 years, a few weeks before Felicia is set to head off to college and attending her friend Britton’s graduation party. Britton casually introduced Felicia to his college roommate – Bart. Immediately, Felicia recalls her mother’s stories and tells him, “I went to preschool with a guy named Bart.” As luck would have it, this was the same Bart from preschool. A few months later the two reconnected while Bart was in Chicago during Thanksgiving break and the rest is fairytale history. The decor for this spectacular wedding is just as unique as this couple’s story. The blue and purple color scheme was inspired by Felicia’s favorite flower, orchids, and a navy blue James Bond tuxedo with a black lapel. Felicia loved the idea of having gold as the accent color since it was less common then silver. Consequently, gold accents ended up being much harder to find which lead to a few DIY projects which included: table numbers, gift card box, menus, and escort cards. In the end, these colors came together in a very tasteful and elegant way.
