Art Institute Wedding Soirée

It was a fabulous evening at the Modern Wing of the Art Institute Wedding Soirée. Cocktails were served; mini-dishes were passed. Our design team at Anthony Gowder Designs had the pleasure of creating five distinct bridal looks throughout Terzo Piano. Each one featured a unique color palette and floral design. We’d like to give thanks to Carasco Photography for capturing all of the looks throughout the evening.

And a big thank you to Kevin Weinstein for these photos.
