A Great Gatsby Themed wedding at the Lincolnshire Marriott Hotel

I had a great time with Ed + Sarah at Wrigley Field for their engagement session a couple months ago…We all were so excited to see the Chicago Cubs clubhouse! Be sure to check out their Wrigley Field Engagement Session Photos!

They assembled a great team of vendors for their Great Gatsby Themed wedding! Misha from Liven It Up Events was their day of coordinator, Vale of Enna provided the gold candelabras and ostrich feather centerpieces, and David Rothstein Music provided the live orchestra for the reception!

We spent their whole wedding day on the Lincolnshire Marriott Resort property…Her beautiful lace dress with some amazing details!

The bridesmaids wore black dresses with the perfect pattern for their Great Gatsby themed wedding!


Such a sweet photo with just the perfect amount of emotion!


Beautiful wedding bouquet by Vale of Enna – white and pink peonies with vintage lace and a sparkling brooche!

Sarah in her amazing wedding gown! I love the details on the back and the hanging pearls on the shoulders and had to include it in a picture! She could walk into a Great Gatsby party with no problem =)


A beautiful portrait of the bride-


Elsewhere at the Lincolnshire Marriott, Ed was getting ready with his groomsmen-



In keeping with roaring 20’s of the Great Gastby era…Ed wore a tuxedo with long tails


A photo of just the bride and groom =) Love the little pop of color provided by the yellow flowers!

We had to include these two little guys in a couple pictures!


I wonder if Ed gets jealous-


We went inside the Lincolnshire Marriott where I found these exposed brick columns this wedding photo

Then we went outside for some wedding photos in nature! We found this cool double bridge for the bridal party-

The vintage train car is looks really cool in a nature setting.


Love this pose by Sarah and it highlights her dress just perfectly!



This belongs in a fashion magazine! =)


Lincolnshire Marriott Wedding Ceremony

Vale of Enna did a phenomenal job of turning Sarah + Ed’s ‘Great Gatsby’ theme idea into reality! The white ostrich feathers and the gold candelabras are amazing!

Their wedding programs also had a Great Gatsby vibe by incorporating an art deco design!

After the wedding ceremony was over, Sarah + Ed had a traditional Korean ceremony called a Paebaek.

Love all the fun in this photo! The couple is supposed to bite down on the dried date together during this part of the Paebaek ceremony

My favorite part of the Paebaek ceremony: when the groom has to run around the room with his bride on his back! Go Ed Go!
