GG + Ricky | Vera Wang Wedding From Angel Eyes Photography


This Chicago wedding is full of charm.  We love the gorgeous flowers, the pretty pale pink bridesmaid dresses and the bride’s stunning Vera Wang Ghillian. But most of all, we adore how radiant the couple looks and the happiness you can feel through the pictures.

The Ceremony
We wanted to get married outside, and the Herrington has the perfect courtyard setting alongside the Fox River.  It was idyllic!  We walked down a rose petal aisle and got married underneath an arbor cascading with flowers.

The Reception
The reception was also at the Herrington, which made it quite convenient for the guests.  The food is delicious and it is delivered to each guest with white glove service- a nice touch!  Our band, Red Wood, kept the dance floor packed all night!!

GG’s Wedding Dress Search
I didn’t have a vision for my wedding dress.  My best friend and I decided to try looking when I was visiting her in North Carolina.  In our usual fashion we were being ridiculously goofy at this fancy bridal salon, when we found the PERFECT dress!  Naturally it was out of my budget, so I tried to put it out of my mind.  But every dress I tried on I compared to that dress!  Finally I brought my mom to the Vera Wang store in Chicago, and once I tried it on and saw her reaction, I knew I had to have this dress!!

Why She’s Selling Her Wedding Gown
This dress was one of the highlights of the wedding!  I absolutely LOVE it!!  Before the wedding I would look at pictures of the dress and it would immediately make me happy, and now I love all of our wedding photos.  I want to share that happiness with another girl who may not be able to afford the dress!

If you’re looking for gorgeous all white wedding inspiration, look no further than today’s wedding.  From the white bouquets to the stunning tall centerpieces to the beautiful cake (designed by the bride no less), this wedding has it all. And the brides Monique Lhuillier Forever gown was the perfect choice for this elegant affair.

The Ceremony:
We had a traditional chuppah with a reformed rabbi. There were candles and white rose petals down the aisle. The chuppah itself had ivory drapery with a full top of ivory roses and orchids cascading down. Beautiful crystal balls with candles inside hung behind us.

A string trio played our songs. He came down the aisle to The Verve- Bittersweet Symphony, and My mother walked me down the aisle to Snow Patrol- Chasing Cars. We said our own vows which we both laughed and cried to. It was magical.

Ruthie’s Wedding Dress Search:
I tried on 4 dresses all in one boutique. However I had come in with a photo of the Monique Lhuillier Forever dress, and knew that if it fit the way I imagined it would, that would be the dress. So I saved it for last, and when I came out of the dressing room and looked at my mom, we both knew.

Why She’s Selling Her Wedding Dress:
I decided to sell my wedding dress because I want someone else to enjoy it too. It seems foolish to have spent so much money on my dress for it to collect dust in an attic. I want my dress to experience another night full of love and happiness. I want my dress to become your dress, for a much cheaper price!

Vera Wang Spring 2015 Wedding Dresses


Proving herself always the innovator, Vera Wang showcased a daring new collection of gowns with her Spring 2015 bridal line. The dress are very Vera, but different from her usual aesthetic. They are, as Vera describes,  “Lightness of Being: Delicate and Disciplined. Sensual and Seductive.”

And innovating even the gowns’ presentation, Vera Wang debut them with a short film titled “Chasing Alix” instead of a runway show.
