As Seen In: Wedding at the Drake Hotel featured in Carats & Cake
Jordan & Jake’s wedding was featured on Carats & Cake recently and I wanted to share a few additional favorite moments from this gorgeous day. A wedding at the Drake Hotel is almost always sure to have a classic vibe, but when you combine this iconic Chicago location with the family history of not only Jordan’s parents celebrating their own wedding day but Jordan’s grandparents celebrating in the very same ballroom Jordan & Jake spent their first hours as husband and wife, and you have a recipe for an impactful evening.
Starting things off with a pro-tip: Ask your florist to bring a few extra loose blooms in the morning. I LOVE using the gorgeous floral you’ve put so much thought into choosing as the perfect extra organic detail to styling all of your important pieces. These pink garden roses brought the perfect texture and pop of color into Jordan’s creamy invitation suite.
