Ally + Derek | The Ivy Room Chicago Wedding


It's not often that we have a bride as in love with photography and all things wedding as we are, but with bride Ally, every beautiful detail was exactly what you'd expect from someone who works in the wedding industry: perfect! Her wedding to her sweet groom, Derek, was a truly a day to remember at the extraordinarily beautiful Ivy Room. When asked about their love story, they put it simply: "We just love each other lots!"

Their love was evident throughout the day, fabulously curated by planner Rachel DeMarte, who paired up with the Event Creative team to create a breath-taking celebration for this fun-loving couple and their guests.  The couple's passion for capturing the day was reflected in the details, with selfie sticks at every table for guests and even their own wedding hashtag on custom signage! This dream team of vendors truly brought Ally's vision to life while tying in details unique to the bride and groom, from his and hers cocktails (a margarita for Ally and an old-fashioned for Derek) to late-nights snacks and desserts from favorite spots around the city, like cupcakes from the always-delicious Magnolia Bakery.

Principal Amanda Sudimack and Artisan Events team members Christine and Doug were thrilled to join this fabulous pair as they celebrated their love, surrounded by family and friends. Thanks for having us, Ally + Derek!
