Wedding RECAP @ The Rookery

Today, we look back at one of our weddings that took place at The Rookery!  The team at Liven It Up Events is always honored to work at truly historic venues, especially, The Rookery!  We just love the history behind the building and working in the space is just a joy.  This wedding took place at the end of April.  Believe it or not, the weather cooperated and we had a pretty nice day. 
The morning began at The JW Marriott around the corner from The Rookery.  We had the hair and make-up team at Sonia Roselli come and enhance everyone's natural beauty!  Then, it was off to the ceremony which took place at Assumption Church in the early afternoon.  The entire wedding day was captured by Mike Scarpelli (looking forward to seeing his photos) of Gerber & Scarpelli Photography and Grace with Vail of Enna provided stunning floral arrangements to add to The Rookery's old world charm!
To help make the wedding a success, Jewell Events was our caterer, Amy Beck Cake Designs created a work of art out of cake and Toast and Jam kept that dance floor packed!  Not to mention, Shutterbooth kept he fun going with an open photo booth!
Take a look at some of our snap shots from the day!

Wedding RECAP @ The Sofitel

Looking back at a fantastic wedding we had at the Sofitel Chicago this past April, we just can not help it but love how this wedding came together!  This was just such a fanastic day!  The weather was wonderful, 70 degrees in April!  As always, the Sofitel did an incredible job!  From the service to the food, it was a wonderful experience!  Tricia Koning with Tricia Koning Photography captured the wedding and not to mention, what a joy to work with her!  Don Cagen with the Don Cagen Orchestra kept the dance floor packed and seriously, what a pro!

The floral was designed my a now retired floral designer who was a good friend to the groom's mother.  His mother's dying wish to her friend was that she not retire until her son married so she could be there every step of the way to make it a beautiful day... she did not disappoint!

Take a look at how this magical wedding came together!

Wedding RECAP @ Salvatore's

It’s that time of the year again, Wedding RECAPs are back Liven It Up Events is gearing up for Wedding Season 2014!  Today, we are looking back at a wedding at Salvatore’s in Chicago!  This is a great, family owned venue in Chicago’s Lincoln Park Neighborhood.  Homemade Italian inspired cuisine, along with the natural, old world charm of the venue, it is the perfect place to have a wedding or any event at!

This wedding took place at the beginning of April, just in time to use some bright florals and colors for the centerpieces.  Juliet Tan Floral Designs did an AMAZING job bring the centerpieces to life in the space!
