Weddings at A New Leaf
One of our favorite venues in Chicago for any event is a place called A New Leaf. It is a magical oasis in the middle of Lincoln Park, right on the edge of Old Town. It is really a flower shop that has this stunning event space next to it. With three levels of space and a garden in the back, it is a wonderful place to get married!
This year so far we have had a couple of weddings with quite a few to come! Back in April, we had the opportunity to work with Rachel at J&L Catering who did a beautiful job writing a serving a menu for 60 guests that we served upstairs on the mezzanine. Before dinner, Rev. Michael Stejskal performed an intimate wedding ceremony in The Apartment. Simply divine!
Laurie at Corner Stone Photography captured the evening for memories and Carrie with Toast & Jam Deejays kept the evening moving with some fun tunes!
And to thank Laurie, the florist and manager at A New Leaf for creating such STUNNING works of art! Gorgeous!!
We found ourselves back at A New Leaf in May working with a fun couple who again, wanted to create an elegant but fun affair for their guests!
This time we were working with Raschelle at A New Leaf who did AMAZING flowers for the space, while Aurieanne with the Hearty Boys wrote a fun menu, perfect for a Day Time Wedding in the Spring!
Matt Haas with Matt Haas Photography was able to capture all of the special moments from the ceremony in the Apartment officiated by Rev. Ron Crowley-Koch. Deejay, John Simmons kept the guests ears filled with musical notes throughout the day!
With some playful food stations, a candy bar made up of some really fun old fashioned candies, and perfect, sunny spring weather, the guests enjoyed a full filled afternoon at A New Leaf for a memorable day for our couple.
We will be back at A New Leaf throughout the year and looking forward to creating some more memorable & magical experiences for our clients! Until then!
