Today, the sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and here in Chicago its a balmy 60 degrees which for January is insanely awesome! I thought it appropriate to showcase all of the magical Spring Style I photographed a couple weeks ago at Debi Lillys Bride Style 17 at the always chic DL Loft here in Chicago. The queen of style herself was styled by Kate Johnson of Kate Johnson Artistry who gave her a pretty bright purple lip I was obsessed with!
It was a beautiful day full of style trends that featured the Pantone color of the year, Greenery! Debi being the style maven that she is, showcased some of the best talent in the city and brought them together with some excited brides to be to see how they can turn their big day into the fantasy they always dreamed of. Table settings dripping in pink, gold and white with unique floral motif vases gave way to a more green approach (which I love, being a member of the The Green Wedding Alliance) by using live potted flowering plants in place of cut flowers held in pretty pots with all the feminine touches one could want. The vintage place settings and glassware provided by The Festive Frog are also in keeping with a green theme, and the pretty pink and green plates and glassware made everything feel fresh. Speaking of fresh, the mediterranean inspired fare by Olive Mediterranean Grill was amazing! I actually went back for seconds because their baked falafel was beyond delicious. Moving on to the over the top pretty that is everything that Toni at Toni Patisserie makes, it was hard to want to eat anything it looked so beautiful. I love photographing her work because it is always so perfectly detailed and each individual cookie, cupcake, or pastry is a work of art.
The event was fun, bright, full of happy faces and yummy champagne cocktails. Its so nice to be able to enjoy days like this during an otherwise cold Chicago winter, and when you’re at Debi Lillys place, it always feels like springtime in Paris. <3
