Sophie & Chris’s Modern-Industrial Wedding Day

Forced to opt for an intimate wedding ceremony in 2020, Sophie & Chris were ready to celebrate with ALL of their family and friends in attendance this past July. The industrial aesthetics of The Ivy House perfectly fit the vibe of S&C’s urban residencies in Chicago and NYC. Sophie & Chris’s Modern-Industrial Wedding Day was filled with so much love and personal touches. There were so many happy tears during the ceremony as Sophie & Chris were finally able to say their I-Do’s in front of their loved ones. The courtyard was already filled with plenty of lush greenery so we kept the ceremony backdrop relatively minimal. It was the perfect summer day for an outdoor wedding ceremony! 

Sophie & Chris’s Modern-Industrial Wedding Day aesthetic inside kept in line with a black and white color palette softened by the neutral blooms, greenery, and romantic candlelight that adorned the tables. Floral design was done by none other than our very own Mallory. Soft glowing candle light filled the room while varying heights of florals were balanced throughout the space. Leave it to Milwaukee Airwaves to keep the party going – Sophie, Chris, and their guests did not leave the dance floor and kept the party going all night. We can’t thank them enough for having us a part of their big day!
