I’ve got one word for you. FIERCE. GQ. Okay, so that’s two words. They both sum up Lyndsay and Reid perfectly in a nutshell!
These two gorgeous people happened to find each other across the distant reaches of the internetz – on Match.com. Dashing Reid bears a President Fitz resemblance, and Lyndsay, a feisty fashion-plate who can totally work those Vogue-errific model poses, are one of the coolest couples I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. Despite their wild love story and strikingly good looks, this couple is amazingly down-to-earth, living in the Chicago ‘burbs and working side-by-side at a family business.
Before the ceremony, the couple romped around the legendary Blackstone Chicago hotel for portraits, including at the nearby Tiffany & Co. Celebration Garden for their first look. History buffs know this turn-of-the-century hotel as the ‘Hotel of Presidents’ for its contributions to political parlance and also to pop culture (Al Capone’s The Untouchables). If you’re looking for a venue that brings out your inner badass, the Blackstone is it! Don’t miss that AMAZE red room!
Lyndsay and Reid’s intimate wedding took place at Chicago Illuminating Company. It is housed in a former power plant/warehouse and has an urban loft vibe to it – a perfect complement to the couple’s modern affair. Designed by Kehoe Designs, the classic black and white design was punctuated with gold and silver accents, ghost chairs at dinner tables, and velvet chaise lounges casually strewn around the dance floor in an I’m-too-cool-for-you attitude. (You can always tell a Kehoe wedding from any others, see other signature examples here and here.) Scroll through for more from this awesome wedding!
Congrats, Lyndsay and Reid!
