Toast to 2013

8 Feb

Last week we hosted a very intimate luncheon for some of the top wedding planners/event planners in the industry. We toasted to a new year of fabulous weddings/events and enjoyed a delicious lunch prepared by CBG Chef Paul Choi! Everyone had such a great time reconnecting and catching up with each other – and of course, having a blast in the Shutterbooth Photobooth! Check out some photos [courtesy of DEEPEND IMAGERY] from the luncheon: 


A BIG thank you goes out to our partners for this event:

We are BACK – and this week we are LOVING the new Tru Blooms fragrance – perfect for any bride, bridesmaid and mob/mog!!


Tru Blooms is a bright floral perfume made of elegant sheer rose, traditional lavender and sensuous violet.

 Sparkling watery fruit accords, reminiscent of a day along the shores of Lake Michigan, create the perfume’s first impression. Blonde woods and skin musk, which speak to the city’s vibrant nightlife and blues heritage, produce its long-lasting beauty.

 Tru Blooms Chicago represents the first time a fine fragrance has been made from ingredients taken from the streets, public spaces, neighborhood gardens and urban farms of a community. Each bottle is a piece of history and a symbol of civic pride.

You can purchase the Tru Blooms fragrance at our Gift Shop:
