I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

Brianna and Chris’ Chicago wedding planned by Estera Events is a lovely blend of historic elegance and modern sensibilities. Playing with a mix of historic Chicago architecture and new modern and sleek design, a ceremony at the Grainger Ballroom at the CSO set the tone for a Grand urban affair, while the celebration following at Modern Wing at the Art Institute was totally contemporary.  Beautiful rich hues and stunning florals by HMR Designs shine against the urban setting and photographer Kina Wicks was on hand to capture it all.
