So Long, Summer: White Party Inspiration

Today’s post is brought to us by Brynn Renee of Dandy & Fine Parties

White-Party-1

Not that I even want to go there, but the end of summer is nearing all too soon, friends. It’s a sad reality, but so it goes. There is a silver lining though… or in this case, a white lining! The end of summer is a perfect excuse for a celebration to see summer off properly with a party dressed all in white! The setting will be covered in white, with guests in their finest cream linens, and white peaches and champagne will be served (no red wine, please!)

Romantic Chicago Wedding: Linda & Brian

Linda_Tran___Brian_Healey_Wedding 11

Today we are so excited to share a serendipitous love story from Linda and Brian – a story that had it’s first spark at a tennis club in Minnesota, and finally ignited upon a fateful reunion in Chicago. 

“We both grew up in Grand Rapids, MI, played tennis at the same club, and even had the same tennis coach (who years later was the reader at our wedding). A five year age difference kept us at a distance even though I had a crush on Brian. College and life took us in separate directions. Years later, I moved to Chicago. Brian was already living here. I was new to the city, so I reached out to him to tell him I moved here. He asked where in the city I was living and told him. He said my apartment was literally the building next door to him! We couldn’t believe it! We started hanging out and setting each other up with our friends. Told all my single friends I had the perfect guy for them. He did the same. Little did we know that we were perfect for each other.” read more…
