Don’t you love finding those hidden spaces in a bustling city? You know those secret backyard cafes and little speakeasy bars that take you away from the chaos? Kara and Geoff in Chicago found their hidden magic space at the Ivy Room in Chicago, and threw a gorgeous, greenery-filled, “backyard” wedding within the crowded metropolis.
The space is a stunner, covered in ivy (predictably) and oh-so-charming, even a party of nearly 200 people looked intimate in the courtyard. Aside from its stunning aesthetic, they catered to a very important guest – Kara and Geoff just had to find the perfect venue for their adorable pup Duffers.
Another advantage of getting their garden party feel of the venue within the city limits was the ease of slipping out for gorgeous city view portraits with each other and their bridal party. Dressed so sweetly in pink and champagne – and Kara in that eye-catching embellished Hayley Paige gown – the girls were beaming along the waterfront in the windy city.
