A Glam, Latin-Inspired Wedding at Carnivale in Chicago, Illinois

While planning their urban glam wedding in the heart of Chicago, Illinois, Fiorella Verne (32 and a project manager) and Chris Wilson (37 and a management consultant) knew they wanted theirs to be a celebration filled with flair. "I'm Latin and Chris enjoys exploring different tastes and cultures, so Carnivale was perfect for us," Fiorella says of their Latin-fusion venue. Aside from the restaurant's loft-like ceilings and ornate light fixtures, the couple immediately fell in love with its bright aesthetic. "The decor is truly impressive," Fiorella says. "It's a fiesta as soon as you walk in." To reflect the feel of the venue, simple votives were paired with hydrangea centerpieces in varying heights for a reception that was equal parts classic and glam. Guests were even treated to family-style eats and Carnivale's famous mojitos and sangria before digging into dessert: a four-tier vanilla cake filled with fresh strawberries and frozen custard.
