Alex + Margot: Colorful Wedding at The Ruby Street in Highland Park


A Pink Wedding Dress, A Blue Tux, Live Orchestra, and Cathedral Windows at The Ruby Street

Alex and Margot have a love story full of bright colors and fun details, so why not have a wedding to match? The lovebirds tied the night at The Ruby Street in Highland Park- possibly my new favorite wedding venue in my hometown! This classic blue and white trimmed church, boasting a gorgeous cathedral window, was renovated to make it the perfect spot for these two to say I do! Nestled in the neighborhoods of Highland Park, this little hidden gem was full of funky accents like a massive macrame wall and trendy touches such as the gold luxe lighting fixtures from West Elm! It couldn’t have matched our bride and groom better! Alex wore a funky vintage film socks and inspired blue suit, while Margot donned a sweet and fun pink tulle wedding dress, laced with beaded floral patterns. 

The church’s greenery mixed with the pops of bright balls of color spread throughout created the perfect mix of classic wedding style and fun details! Velvet sofas, Beatles inspired neon signs, and banana leaves only added to the eclectic feel of the day! This new husband and wife first met over their vintage cars - so what better way to top a cake then with the two of them sitting in a bright red one (modeled after Margot’s first car)! The bride and groom read their vows to one another with the sweetest of smiles while their guests basked in the golden light from the stain glass window and tried to hold in their tears! After their first newlywed kiss, they exited back down the aisle to a kaleidoscope of colors showering them.

The reception was full of clean lines and beautiful florals as everyone toasted the new Mr. and Mrs, and got ready to dance the night away! Of course bridal photos took place in a vintage Cadillac, the perfect backdrop for such a fun love story. That same car later become their getaway ride as Alex and Margot headed off to start their lives together as husband and wife!
