Chicago Elopement with Guests : Melissa and Justin

Creativo Loft

Melissa and Justin celebrated their intimate elopement wedding with around 20 of their family and friends at Creativo Loft in Chicago.

This was a fun summer casual wedding, and we loved the bride’s halter style short dress, and the groom’s cool beige jacket-less suit. Their wedding rings were both enchanting with the bride’s emerald stone and the groom’s custom engraved design. With a champagne toast and time to mingle with guests, this is a fun and easy way to celebrate a marriage.

They selected our special Group Elopement package, which is a two-hour ceremony and celebration at Creativo Loft, and may be customized with a la carte add-ons. They included additional time with photographer Giorgio. Before their ceremony, Giorgio met the couple at their hotel and took some portraits there before going to a nearby stone and ivy garden courtyard on Michigan Ave. for outside wedding portraits. Creativo Loft is located adjacent to downtown Chicago, less than 2 miles from Michigan Ave., so any great portrait location in the downtown area or along Lake Michigan is easy to get to within 5 to 15 minutes from our venue. Couples that choose this package also sometimes have us order light appetizers and/or plan to go to a restaurant afterwards. In addition to the usual package upgrades, we can also help couples find and book restaurants and coordinate their after-elopement plans. Please contact venue director Sarah for more information if you are interested in having a similar wedding celebration.

Autumn Chicago Elopement : Rudy and Patricia

Creativo Loft

Rudy and Patricia celebrated an intimate elopement wedding at Creativo Loft with their daughters and a couple friends. The bride brought in some autumn theme decorations to add our the altar, including an orange berry garland and multi-colored glass votive candles. We loved her dress…with pockets! And the groom was looking pretty dapper with his seasonal sienna brown overcoat and shoes.

Patricia also incorporated her love of running during their outside portrait time. Rudy helped his bride put on her running shoes, and she did a 50 yard dash across one of Chicago’s historic iron bridges. It was definitely a fun run to the altar with this lovely couple and the beautiful autumn colors. Photos © Giorgio Ventola / Wedding Creativo.
