Modern Luxury Brides Chicago welcomed Chicago’s chicest brides/grooms-to-be to the Tenth Annual Afternoon of Bridal Luxury where brides, grooms and their guests sipped, shopped and tasted their way through the charitable wedding walk. Over 250 future brides and their guests kicked off the day at Spiaggia Private Events where they viewed gorgeous décor by Platinum Events complete with tablescapes by BBJ Linen. Justin Jacobson, founder of Platinum Events, also stopped by for a special appearance. Attendees enjoyed tunes from Cagen Music and visited with the top wedding vendors in the city while they sipped Mionetto prosecco and nibbled delicious bites by Spiaggia and Bittersweet Pastry Shop & Café. Afterwards, brides-to-be and their guests ventured out to Oak Street and visited over 20 stores that are members of the Oak Street Council. They enjoyed savory bites from Amy Beck Cake Design and Good 4 You Catering at Ultimate Bride, Elysia Root Cakes at Vera Wang, Garrett’s Popcorn at Gibsons, Jewell Catering at Harry Winston and Dimitras Bridal, Spin Spun at La Perla, Toni Patisserie & Café at kate spade, and Vanille Patisserie at David Yurman. Along the walk, brides were offered exclusive discounts, giveaways and special gifts at each stop and listened to lively hits from Cagen Music’s trio on the city-sidewalk. Guests ended at the Waldorf Astoria Chicago where they enjoyed a bridal after-party with Chicago’s best wedding professionals. Kesh Luxury Group inspired brides with their beautiful vision of bridal table décor and The Traveling Photo Booth sent attendees away with a special takeaway. Guests were also gifted with the infamous Modern Luxury swag bags, which were fully packed with bridal must-haves and special offers.
A portion of ticket sales benefited the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition.
