Erin and Rob met at work. During that time they worked on the same team and became friends. Eventually, Rob asked Erin to join him for drinks after work. She didn’t think much of it, because they were just friends. But when they went out it was clear that there was something more there. They dated for over three years before getting engaged.
Their wedding day started with first looks and a Chicago-centric photo shoot. Afterwards, they headed to the chic venue, Salvage One, to say “I do”. Antique pillars and two large floral arrangements formed the wedding altar and vintage chandeliers were aglow above the space.
Erin was stunning. Her lace gown featured delicate cap sleeves and fit her perfectly. The bridesmaids wore burgundy gowns, a winter wedding classic. Meanwhile, Rob and his groomsmen were rocking blue suits paired with burgundy ties. The ladies also wore white wraps for outdoor photos and carried white rose bouquets with pops of red and eucalyptus.
The reception tables featured gold chargers and navy blue napkins and the floral centerpieces were white with greenery. Salvage One didn’t need much added decor, since it’s filled with cool vintage pieces and antiques. However, the exposed brick walls and large windows gave the space an open industrial feel. Erin and Rob made their grand entrance to get the dancing started and later they enjoyed traditional Italian desserts. Before the night ended, the newlyweds treated their guests to a Chicago classic, Super Dog hot dogs, to celebrate their town. Congratulations Erin and Rob!
