Intimate California-Inspired Vineyard Wedding in Lake Bluff

Needless to say, planning a wedding of any size in 2020 was challenging due to the uncertainty surrounding what was possible and safe. Ultimately, Kara, Charlie, and their families decided to host an intimate, family-only wedding at the bride's family home in Lake Bluff. With a smaller guest list, we were able to go all-out with the décor and create a truly memorable celebration. Kara had a vision for an earthy look with striking California-style accents that would complement the natural beauty of the property. The ceremony was held in the family's vineyard at the house, with the reception on the bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. A custom-built hanging structure provided the "wow" moment, and every detail was carefully crafted to complement Kara's vision of a natural look with a touch of the extraordinary.
