Bridal Sign Up

Cara Garbarino & Brock Conrad

October 28, 2011 | Chicago Illuminating Company

The bride and groom shared a laugh in the courtyard at Chicago Illuminating Company. Cara looked lovely in a Monique Lhuillier dress from Ultimate Bride and a reconstructed necklace by Maria Elena.

Cara’s eye-catching Grazia shoes.

Brock designed the seating cards.

Heffernan Morgan Designs’ centerpieces featured sprays of silver duck’s foot palmetto and gypsophila.

The Couple
For their first date, Brock took Cara out for burgers and beer at Roscoe Village’s Village Tap, where the pair snapped pics in a photo booth. So, naturally, they had an Instant Party Photo Booth at their wedding reception six years later.

The Details
HM Designs brought bold décor to the ceremony and dinner spaces, while Kehoe Designs turned the party room into a Parisian-themed fête.

The Party
With help from Affairs With Linda, the fun-loving couple hosted a dinner party catered by Food For Thought. Arlen Music’s Entourage band and DJ delaChapelle fueled the party.
