Ilana and Ben’s wedding was full of special details that made their wedding day truly unique. From the upbeat father/daughter choreographed dance to Uptown Funk, the sparkly Kate Spade Keds and the knotted design on Tiffany Co. cufflinks it was clear that every aspect was decided with so much love and care. Their colors were white and green with gold accents which looked beautiful and elegant. Even their venue, the Revel Fulton Market, an urban-chic warehouse in Chicago was the perfect place for this Chicago couple to celebrate their day.
However, the most unique aspects of the wedding were the special ways that Ilana and Ben chose to honor their Jewish heritage. The traditions began with the couple signing the Ketubah, a Jewish wedding contract, before the ceremony intimately surrounded by close family and friends. At the ceremony at the beautiful Revel Fulton Market in Chicago Ilana and Ben met under the Chuppah filled with vines and white flowers to say their vows and declare their love for one another with their parents and siblings by their side. And while dancing the night away at the reception Ilana and Ben smiled from ear to ear as they were hoisted in the air during the Horah as their guests laughed and danced around them.
Their day was so elegant, romantic and sophisticated. It was easy to see from the look in their eyes and the effortless smiles that Ilana and Ben have an extraordinary type of love for each other. It was this, along with the honoring of their Jewish faith, that made the day so special.
