Philippe and Oriana

Simply timeless–my very favorite kind of celebration. 

When college sweethearts Philippe and Oriana decided to tie the knot, they recalled a memorable dinner date at the Signature Room on the 95th floor of the John Hancock building in downtown Chicago. Certain that the timeless setting would be perfect for their wedding, they kept the rest of the details and decor simple–with the exception of their gorgeous attire! Oriana, a true vintage gown enthusiast, actually wore a borrowed gown that her girlfriend's family had inherited from a church friend–turns out, the 1950s Marshall Fields & Co beauty fit her like a glove from the first moment she slipped it on! Oriana paired her dreamy dress with with a period veil, pearls and sand-colored sandals from Nina, while her groom wore a pristine vintage tuxedo. They were married in view of the city where the met and fell in love, and after a sumptuous dinner, danced the night away. 


An enormous thank you to Emilia Jane of Emilia Jane Photography for sharing these spectacular photographs–I couldn't possibly pick a favorite from this gorgeous group!
