As I prepare for Burns Night 2017, I'm reflecting on the successes of both our First Burns Night, as well as last year's festivities - which I never got around to posting. Perhaps it's because I accidentally set myself on fire...hmm. Yeah, that happened. Farewell, adorable bolero jacket! But no, dear friends, 'twas merely a … Continue reading Burns Night: Burns, Baby, Burns!

Here it is! It's October! It's October! It's October! (Note: I really love October.) My friend Kristine … Continue reading A Boo-tanical Halloween Party!
Oh, hey! Remember when I used to update this blog? Neither do I. Yeesh. Well, it's been almost a year since my last post where I teased our upcoming Halloween party. It happened. Then the holidays happened. Then Burns Night. Then Galentine's Day...and I didn't blog any of it. Well, the hope is to catch … Continue reading Catching Up

In celebration of their Fall/Winter 2015 issue, Modern Luxury Brides invited Soirée Weddings & Events and many other industry friends to their swanky release party at the brand new Chicago Athletic Association Hotel way back in August. I know. I'm so late, y'all; but I did originally post this on the Soirée blog two months ago so...forgiven? The Chicago … Continue reading Modern Luxury Brides at Chicago Athletic Association!

I had the privilege of attending the 19 East Event Gallery open house with Soirée Weddings & Events this past Wednesday. I am in LOVE with this space, and the vendors all did such an amazing job of putting together this lovely event: check out that posh lounge by Bowery and Bash! Can I move in, please? … Continue reading 19 East Event Gallery Open House
Memorial Day weekend is upon us and that means, not only remembrances, tributes, and parades, but also weddings! We're headed to one ourselves this weekend, in which my husband will be one of two best men. Not gonna lie: I can't wait to see him in that tux! I did a little Memorial Day inspiration post on the … Continue reading Memorial Day Weekend Weddings
