Chez Wedding Pop Up Event 2018 ~ Chicago Wedding Photography

I was contacted by the amazing team at Chez Event Space a few months ago and was asked if I’d be interested in shooting their 2018 Wedding Pop Up Event … to which of course, I said Yes! 

Chez is by far one of our favorite venues to shoot at in the city and we love working with the amazing people there whenever possible!! How the event works is that Chez curates a team of some of the best wedding vendors in the city who then form “dream teams” of sorts that partner up to create one of a kind vignettes in the space at Chez. The vignettes are basically wedding installations intended for engaged couples to peruse for ideas and inspiration!

The event was so well planned and so impressive to see come together!! The space was filled with couples all day long and I had the best time seeing what all these super talented wedding vendor-friends of ours came up with!!

The first beautifully romantic vignette below was put together by  Art of ImaginationSweet Chic Events, and Jewell Events Catering.

The next vignette was a stunning botanical wedding theme done by The Flower Firm,  Events by Grace, and  Blue Plate.

The final vignette I just loved I think because it felt so moody and different than anything we normally see at weddings lately! It was put together by Revel Décor and Shannon Gail Events, with food bye Limelight Catering.
