The 200-person reception was held in Galleria Marchetti’s tented pavilion, which afforded a found-in-nature vibe without leaving the city. Floating tabletop candles and votive chandeliers illuminated the fun.

Amy Beck Cake Design’s dessert was adorned with sugar calla lilies.

The Couple
During the ceremony, when Adam was asked the big “Do you take...” question, a motorcycle zoomed past on Erie Street. The groom had to wait a few loud (and laughter-filled) seconds to respond to his blushing, soon-to-be bride.

The Details
BCR Events and Event Creative brought California wine country to Chicago for the festivities. Guests sipped vino from Ledson Winery in Sonoma Valley where Adam proposed to Julie.

The Party
The candy lovers sent guests home with copious amounts of gummy bears, sour worms, chocolate almonds and more sweet treats from Farley’s & Sathers Candy Company.
