When it comes to weddings, we love them all, big or small, lavish or simple.  But there really is something extra special about the wedding of one of SG’s very own planners.  And while we’d love to say this is because we know and love the couple, it’s really about the perks.  One of the perks, being able to share a backstage pass to the planning process!   Enter, Shannon and Steve’s 2014 bash!

We all know that ROOF on theWit is the ultimate destination for a swanky night out in Chicago, but pair it with a fabulous wedding and some great music, you just know it will be a good time.  For Shannon’s December 2014 wedding, it’s all about the swanky and modern details that will leave guests feeling like they are at a formal and festive holiday cocktail party!

For us, the first step to a good time is the music!  Shannon has enlisted our friends over at Fig Media to DJ (which we could not be more excited about).  And as for the decor, expect anything but “normal.”  For the color palette, Shannon wanted to get away from a distinct palette and just create a vibe and mood that is classy and polished – here is a sneak peek of her style guide!
