Wedding at Revel Motor Row


Revel Motor Row

Revel Motor Row is the newest and coolest venue in Chicago. We love it for it’s contemporary design, spacious courtyard, and for the fact that there are so many gorgeous photo locations right on site. It doesn’t hurt that it’s just a few blocks away from our studio home as well! There couldn’t be a better couple to rock a modern black and white wedding here than Terese and Matt. Everything was ultra chic (seriously - that gown. the cape. obsessed.) offset by how 100% fun, goofy, and loving these two are. Their families were warm and celebrated wildly.

Who wouldn’t love a bride who gets ready in matching Adidas track suits with her family and bridesmaids instead of silk robes? They’re the coolest.

Cannot get over this incredible gown and cape combo! This was definitely our most head-turning gown of the year and we can’t get enough! Predicted top wedding fashion trend for 2019: bridal capes.

The couple chose not one, but two brand new venues for their wedding weekend. Their rehearsal dinner was set on the rooftop of the new Ace Hotel in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood. The next morning, Matt and his friends got ready for the wedding there together.
Revel Motor Row has so many gorgeous spaces like this symmetrical, window-lit hall just off the bridal suite.

Revel Decor knocked it out of the park with this chic but romantic white bouquet. We would totally recommend a look like this for a June wedding!
Terese was a vision in this striking sleek gown and embellished cape. She wore her hair in a deep side part and looked super chic.

Terese and Matt had no official bridesmaids or groomsmen although they had their siblings and parents wear coordinating gowns and suits. All their nieces and nephews joined them as they walked down the aisle. What a beautiful family! This is great inspiration for couples considering having a lot of flower girls and ring bearers.

Jesse Deckard of Bliss Weddings and Events worked his magic on the modern design. White chairs lined the aisle leading up to this amazing circular ceremony backdrop of greenery, roses, and hydrangeas.

Does it get any better than this all white wedding reception dinner space? Long white dinner tables filled the room under the skylights provided by Revel Motor Row.
