Fun, fanciful and full of style, Whitney and Chad's wedding combined casual elegance with a fresh peach theme in a panoramic suburban setting. Featured in Wedding Guide Chicago with photos by Jenny Taylor Photography, the ceremony and reception were held at the Esplanade Lakes Doubletree by Hilton in Downers Grove, where a contemporary curved ballroom with huge windows is surrounded by a tranquil pond. At the ceremony, two elegant white floral arrangements created a stunning focal point, and the bride carried a garden bouquet of fresh dahlias, roses, astilbe and Queen Anne's lace with soft pink, peach, and purple highlights. At the reception, the couple incorporated their peachy pink theme with real peaches and larkspur for centerpieces, romantic amber lighting accents, and fresh peaches on their mousse-filled wedding cake. DIY place cards and a custom vintage poster completed the look. After dinner, guests enjoyed candy peach rings as favors. The newlyweds met in college and honeymooned in St. Lucia, but guests will long remember the stylish setting and casual flair of this suburban Chicago wedding that combined glamour, romance and lots of fun.
