Deb + Adam planned their winter wedding at the Haight Elgin for the day after Thanksgiving. What a beautiful sunny day they had! Since the weather reached almost 60, we were able to go down to the river for photos and enjoy the gorgeous sunshine.
“I choose you and I choose you over and over. Without pause, without a doubt and within a heartbeat, I’ll keep choosing you.”
Deb + Adam met through mutual friends at the University of Illinois. They became friends for a while before Deb made her move. Days turned into months and months turned into seven years together.
“Adam loves how Deb always finds ways to surprise him. Like the time during their college days when she showed up to his Architecture studio late at night with a bowl of macaroni & cheese in hand.”
Deb and her bride crew got ready for their wedding at the Haight Elgin in their vintage bridal suite. It was all hands on deck as her bridesmaids helped assemble the gorgeous floral bouquets Deb had designed. The sprigs of teal and green leaves accented the teal bridesmaids dresses. The mood was definitely fun and relaxed. Adam surprised Deb with a wedding gift which included some inside jokes they share and a chocolate glazed doughnut, which Deb was brave enough to munch on in her wedding dress!
During their ceremony, Deb’s sister sang a beautiful version of the Sara Bareilles song “I choose you.” What an amazing voice she has! It brought tears to my eyes.
Deb created all the table decor herself and it was stunning! Unique beer growlers served as the table numbers. Keeping with the teal theme, the tables were accented with pops of teal. The center of attention was the desert table featuring teal cake pops, cupcakes, cookies and a chocolate wedding cake.
“Along came Adam and right away it was clear to everyone that he was a keeper. Just the kindest, most thoughtful, humble, wonderfully warm, generous, loyal, all the good adjectives, that’s Adam. I could not have asked for a better person for my sister to meet.”
After dinner, guests danced the night away, including Adam’s 90 year old grandfather who cut really cut a rug!
