Are you thinking about having a little bling at your wedding? Well, when one of our brides says, I want to see bling, we give her bling! Jackie Belzone, Planner at Liven It Up Events, took on a bride this summer that wanted to see some sparkle at her wedding. The venue had already been selected at The Crystal Gardens at Navy Pier. What is great about the Gardens is that it has a natural look to it, with palm trees, brush, and the cobblestone floors. What is also great about this space is the gorgeous glass ceilings, which give such great natural light! The challenge can be, creating a modern/bling setting in an urban oasis. Take a look and see how Jackie and the team helped made this dream wedding come to life!

Seems like this summer we were at Cafe Brauer quite often. To be exact, it was close to 16 weddings we were involved in at this lovely venue. It is one of the venues that we do love the most! This wedding was quite fun! It took place in the summer and our friends at Paramount Events were the caterer. As you can see, they served a great meal. The first course, a buratta caprese salad which was divine!
Our colleagues at Kloeckner’s flowers were able to create this fun summer/fall look and we played with the colors blush, coral and seamist, but still staying true to the natural elements at Cafe Brauer.
The cake was over the top from Cake Chicago. It was large and made a grand impact when the guests entered the room!
And the day was also in part a success because of us working with our friend, Misty Winter or Misty Winter Photography, Toast and Jam DJ’s, Windy City Limos, Shutterbooth and all else who made this day come to life for this great couple!
Something great to mention about this couple was in lieu of favors, they decided to make a donation to The Chicago Canine Rescue. We thought this was a great idea and thankful to have worked with such a kind couple!
And there you have it! Another wedding RECAP at Cafe Brauer by Liven It Up Events! More RECAPS to come- See more at: http://livenitup.com/wedding-recap-cafe-brauer-6/#sthash.WTKfFNZ4.dpuf

Here’s another great look back at another fun wedding we had at The Joffrey Ballet. This couple wanted something fun, different, with a modern elegant look. Immediately we thought of The Joffrey as an option. It is a fun, modern looking space, that is right in the heart of downtown Chicago. The team at Liven It Up Events is always excited to work in this space. Thanks to the team at Harry Caray’s Catering, Juliet Tan Floral Designs for creating these fun and modern pieces along side the lighting designed by Deborah with Art of Imagination, Style Matters, Matt Haas Photography (again!) for capturing the day and Shutterbooth for the fun photo booth! See how this wedding day came to life!

This year, we saw quite a few day time weddings. This was just one of the ones that we had and loved how it came to life. Our groom’s wanted a rustic, summer, modern feeling and here is how that happened! Thanks to the teams at The Sofitel Hotel and Alexandra with Exquisite Designs, the look was easily achieved. Also need to thank Matt Haas with Matt Haas Photography for capturing all of the moments on the BIG day! See some of our snap shots on this fun wedding for our grooms!

Liven It Up Events was excited to be a part of this wonderful wedding at Cafe Brauer. Kloeckner made beautiful floral arrangements that transformed the space for the ceremony and reception. Guests enjoyed a delicious meal by Entertaining Company, and then they danced the night away to great music by Okyne Medialab. Any last minute cravings were cured by the amazing cupcakes made by Swirlz. It was a night full of laughter and love, and luckily all caught on camera by Emily Gualdoni Photography and Poetic Productions Videography. Please take a look at some of the snapshots!
