And the 2020 Designers Challenge Winner Is… Fresh Rustic Romance!

Preoccupied Bride’s design, Fresh Rustic Romance, is ChicagoStyle Weddings 2020 Designers Challenge Winner!

Preoccupied Bride is thrilled to announce that our amazing design and vendor dream team won the highly coveted magazine award.

Preoccupied Bride’s vision for the design included hosting the shoot at a unique venue whose primary purpose was not weddings but could be. Pinstripes Northbrook was the space: A gorgeous rustic & chic venue with bocci ball courts and an indoor space with the benefits of feeling outdoors. The wood beams, strung lights and floor-to-ceiling glass garage windows that open up to an outdoor patio inspired a natural and cheerful color palette of shades of yellow, green, white and brown.

Vibrant florals and citrus elements, such as real lemons throughout the design, were included in the stationery, place cards, lemonade station, and hand painted cake. The fresh color palette and romantic details came together to produce a fun, earthy and elegant design.

We cannot thank ChicagoStyle Weddings and our amazing vendor partners enough for what turned out to be not only an amazing collaboration but the winning design for a wedding tablescape!
