It never gets old as both Anthony & Sally have done nearly 100 weddings at A New Leaf in Chicago. Every time both of us walk in the space, it just feels like home. Laurie and the crew at A New Leaf always greet us with a smile and hug! As the tree of life gets built on the back table and the caterer is trucking tables up on the balcony and chairs are being set in The Apartment, it just is on of the most perfect places to host a wedding.
Here are a couple of images that Anthony took from our last wedding there.
Guests were invited upstairs to The Apartment for the ceremony. The over sized candelabras and green plants at the base set the front of the room.
Everyone moved out into the garden for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. It's a magical place that garden at A New Leaf. You almost can not even hear the cars on the street. It's the perfect setting for a cocktail party.
We moved into the Storefront and Mezzanine for dinner services, which was put together with perfection by the team at J&L Catering.
It was such a great wedding, with Dolce Strings getting our bride and groom down the aisle, Toast & Jam filling the space with music throughout the rest of the evening, Keith Cotton Photography keeping up with all of the photo ops, Sarah's baking the cake, and of course, amazing florals by the team at A New Leaf.
