Effortlessly Glamorous Bridal Shoot at Sable Hotel

This effortlessly glamorous bridal shoot at Sable Hotel at Navy Pier still has our jaws on the floor! Chelsea, of Gilded Aisle Weddings, put together a team of super talented Chicago vendors to showcase a styled shoot that highlights Hollywood glamour and classic bridal themes. The photographs, by LaCour Images, perfectly capture the glam! 

The Inspiration

“Our inspiration began by imagining all the bridal concepts and themes you seen emerge from brides in the past to today. From there, we picked our favorite themes and brought them to life. The Glam shoot went above and beyond our imaginations and we were able to pull fun elements to take the shoot to the next level such as over the top jewelry, the pops of the “lipstick red” color, personalized popcorns as place cards, and much more.”-Gilded Aisle Weddings

All in the Details

“The curved glass table featured an opulent low and sprawling arrangement, created by Anthony Gowder Designs, with a variety of all white flowers including roses, hydrangeas, and snapdragons with greenery accents. The bouquet was a round, hand tied bouquet of red roses accented with jewels.

Mona, owner of Mona’s Sweet Spot, could not have a made a more fitting cake for our Glamorous photoshoot! She took our idea of having pops of “lipstick” red throughout the shoot and transformed it into a beautiful rose petal detail. She only took it further by adding hints of gold around the petals and cake to match the gold table setting.

UnMuddled Bartending took our elements of a glamorous, yet a bit moody, shoot in produced a seductive tequila based drink garnished with a blood orange and black salt.

Emery Ann Designs used the goil foil technique to give the invitation’s beautiful script a little extra shine. It is complimented with a gold wax seal and red bow with hints of red in the stamps.”-Gilded Aisle Weddings

The Table

Ellie & Rose so graciously provide the stunning glass curved table with matching white and gold chairs. Anthony Gowder Designs then added the beautiful white florals as well as six stemmed glass candlesticks, in staggered heights with floating candles and an abundance of smaller mercury gold votive candles.

The place settings consisted of gold chargers with leaf like attributes completed by gold and white salad plates resting on top and flatware provided by Ellie & Rose. The delicious place cards design by Garrett Popcorn give a nod to our Hollywood Glam theme and such a fun treat for the guests! Emery Ann Design finished off the tablescape with a delicate and breathtaking letter pressed menu card.” –Gilded Aisle Weddings

The Glam

“Our bride first wore a stunning Pronovias dress provided by Mira Couture which had a high neck, sheer short sleeved top with beautiful detailing attached to a luxurious long fitted skirt with a middle slit to show a little of her fabulous James Ciccotti jeweled pointed shoes. Barbara Parker Fine Jewelry showered our bride with jewels such as an 18kt white gold and 18kt yellow gold pave diamond bombe ring, diamond bangles, a 18kt white diamond button ring and much more! Nicci (Luxe Brides by Nicci)gave our bride soft glam waves for her hair while Elise (Leesi B. Makeup) created a frosted shadow to create a smokey eye for makeup.

Her second dress by Eisen Stein, also provided by Mira Couture, included a plunging neck line and full skirt with a great deal of pearls and glitter detailing throughout. Our bride was then glammed up with pearl earrings from Barbara Parker Fine Jewelry, a pearl headband, and a pearl lined veil to compliment the dress. Elise switch her makeup over to a super smokey eye and a layered lash for alluring eyes with a pouffy ponytail done by Nicci.”
