It was a typical hot, humid and sunny day last week for July in Chicago, but the day marked a new beginning for Tiffany and Alex. The couple had all of their wedding festivities at the joined Lang House and Emil Bach House—a prairie-style home built in 1915 and designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Half of their 33 guests stayed at the home with them making Tiffany and Alex’s wedding extra special and intimate and turning the weekend into a family vacation!
The wedding ceremony took place in the yard of the famous home surrounded by beautiful flowers and lush greenery of the gardens. The cocktail hour took place inside the Lang House before heading back outdoors for the reception in the beautiful outdoor tent near the ceremony site. One of our favorite highlights was the tea ceremony that took place before the wedding ceremony. The couple, their parents and close friends and family had a tea ceremony in the tea house of the venue. A tea ceremony is conducted on the wedding day and sees the couple serving tea to their parents, in-laws and/or other family members symbolizing the union of two families, and theirs was beautiful.
Tiffany and Alex were wonderful to work with. They were sweet, open to my advice and trusting in my abilities to take care of their details, so they could truly enjoy their wedding day. Their small, intimate wedding of 33 guests felt big and warm because the couple was surrounded by their closest friends and family. I’m honored to have been a part of one of the most special days in Tiffany and Alex’s lives. I wish them both all the love and happiness in the world!
