Minimalist Chicago Elopement

From Ethereal by Evelina:

As a stylist I love working on special intimate projects. There is nothing more rewarding than helping a couple create images that capture true emotions and moments in life and I recently had the chance to do this in a soft and modern vow renewal session at the Chicago History Museum.

We would like to share with you the story of Roberta and Edward, a couple intoxicated with love. A couple who was eager to face life’s challenges together and planned a simple marriage almost a decade ago at City Hall surrounded by their parents and closest friends.

Inspired by their dreamy love story and the concept of minimal event design, I styled a modern and minimal vow renewal session for them. I sought to reflect the dreaminess of their love through soft, impressionistic styling with a clean modern edge that reflected the simplicity of their wedding.

While the bride and groom chose a clean, fresh faced, and minimal, aesthetic for their styling, we incorporating soft touches, such as foraged florals, hand-lettered vows on cotton rag paper, and Parisian influenced locations to add a dreamy layer to their session.
