Hi Birdies! It’s been a while but I hope all of you are enjoying the crisp fall weather that has finally rested on Chicago!

Perfect for kicking off the fall season , I attended a super fun and appropriately named Wedtoberfest. Brought to you by the ladies behind IndieWed, Wedtoberfest is a fun wedding show combining wonderfully unique local wedding industry vendors with equally unique beer from Breweries in and around the Chicagoland area. The show took place at the lofty Artifact Events venue and was laid out perfectly. There were things to see in every area, with vendors on both the first and second levels, as well as the outdoor courtyard. Below are some of the wonderful professionals that i saw!

Molly’s Cupcakes

Molly’s Cupcakes is a Chicago staple and house-hold name when it comes to cupcakes. Known for a wide range of flavors, Molly’s is a great choice for cupcakes, other sweets (like rice crispy treats – yum!) and wedding cakes!

Regina Jules Bridal

One of the most exciting and eye catching components of the bridal planning process is obviously the wedding dresses! I was fortunate enough to meet Julia Tiedt, the creative, and fashionable mastermind behind Regina Jules Bridal. She specializes in custom, handcrafted bridal gowns and the fun part is that the bride is involved every step of the way! Just from clicking through her online gallery, the dresses that she designs vary in pattern, silhouette, texture, and style. I was lucky enough to get a shot of one for her stunning designs!

Bottles & Cans

Bottles & Cans is a lovely shop that specializes in unique beers, wines, and spirits. Why showcase at Wedtoberfest, you ask? Bottles and Cans is great for couples who have particular tastes in beer, wine, and spirits. They work with couples to customize a liquor package that meets their needs and reflects their taste. The cool thing about them is that they have a liquor license so they can come on-site and handle the bar portion of your wedding (if your venue allows). They are located right in the heart of Chicago’s North Center so definitely check it out!

3Larks Bridal Boutique

3Larks is such a cute concept! It’s a bridal pop-up shop that specializes in “once wed and designer sample gowns”. You’ll find in their inventory many of the bridal couture favorites like Maggie Soterro and Vera Wang, all at discounted prices. Keep up with 3Larks on Facebook to see their next pop-up! Below is a stunning gown from their inventory by Romona Keveza!

Jazi Photo (Photo Booth)

The Jazi Photo Booth was by far one of the coolest things I saw. Not only is it a Photo Booth but it’s a cute little trailer retrofitted with a Photo Booth inside. It’s the cutest photo trailer ever, where your guests can actually step into the trailer and have fun photo sessions. This is an absolutely perfect option for someone having a wedding that has some sort of outside space or cool loft space where you can fit the trailer. Below are photos from the Jazi Photo website (my pics don’t do it justice-in my defense it was dark)!
