Butterfield Country Club, Oak Brook wedding ceremony & reception | Carolina Herrera dress | Hayden & Jake


 I love dogs. I love people who love dogs 🙂  I really love a wedding where the couple show their love for their dog !! There was a dog  at where the Bride got ready, there were two dogs where the Groom got ready….there were dog cookies as wedding treats and a surprise dog in the cake, yes, you read that right 😉  Keep scrolling to see it, so cute.

From the minute I saw this dress I was obsessed! So pretty and unique I loved everything about it! Dress: Ultimate Bride in Chicago, Carolina Herrera

This was one of the most stunning cakes I’ve ever seen, the pattern on the cake was made to match the details on the bride’s dress. Their puppy Marley peeking out was the cutest thing I’ve ever seen…it was a surprise for the groom 🙂

From the Bride…

‘Venue: Butterfield Country Club, Nancy Buttacavoli is the Clubhouse Manager. Nancy is very professional, organized and accommodating.  The club is gorgeous and the food was delish, perfect venue for us.

Dress: Ultimate Bride in Chicago, Carolina Herrera dress and Ultimate custom made the veil.

Flowers: Jane’s Blue Iris Ltd. | Tux: Guys wore grey suits and pink ties from Brooks Brothers

Cake: Amy Beck Cake Design, LLC. Vanessa Hayes is amazing. Jake wanted a traditional cake and I wanted a more modern cake. She was able to blend our two very different visions and designed our perfect 4-tier cake. It was art, and tasted delicious too! One of my favorite things was how she secretly incorporated my dress design on the bottom more modern tier and had our dog Marley peeking out of the back of the cake as a special surprise for Jake.

Cookies: Bittersweet Bakery in Chicago, our wedding favors were cookies that look like our dog Marley.  On his collar, was a diamond ring, because Marley had a sign on his collar, “will you marry me?”  when Jake proposed to me.

Shoes: Kate Spade “Happy” shoe, I got them on 6pm.com for a little more than $100, originally over $400.

Hair and Makeup: Nika Vaughan, Bridal Artists Hair: Angelica

Band: High Society Orchestra > violin, keyboard and vocalist for ceremony > jazz trio for dinner > 10 piece band for dancing > first dance was “I will follow you into the dark“ by Death Cab for Cutie.

My favorite wedding purchase was my dress. It was so hard keeping it a secret from Jake for 9 months.

Every moment was so special to me.We wish we had taken a longer honeymoon. 😉

Advice? Plan your marriage, not just the wedding – or – it’s about the marriage, not just the wedding.  Another one that everyone says, but is so true, is that you need to enjoy every single moment, because the day goes so fast.’
