Julia+Barry's Chicago Illuminating Company Wedding

Julia and Barry from Gerber + Scarpelli Photography on Vimeo.


The Proposal: Barry proposed on a perfectly crisp October day at an apple orchard near the Hudson Valley outside New York City.  Julia had turned around to pick some apples, and when she turned back, he had a beautiful ring by Ashley Warmbold from Continental Diamond. The rest is history.....

The Wedding Day: Julia and Barry started their modern and elegant wedding day getting ready at the  Thompson Hotel. Julia's makeup was done by Rebecca Males, and her updo was by Taylor Mars both stylist from Sonia Roselli Studio.  Her gorgeous wedding gown was by Mark Zunino, from  Kleinfeld Bridal. The Bridesmaids wore Amsale from The Wedding Library. The Groom and Groomsmen wore suits from Suits Supply. After getting ready, Julia and Barry shared a private and memorable first look before heading to the Chicago Illuminating Company for their amazing garden ceremony, Ketubah signing, and beautiful modern reception. Stunning florals by Raed Kakish of Indulge & Bloom, terrific lighting by Kirk Holslin of Imagine Lights. Catering by Food For Thought, cake by Janet Lee of Flour Cake and Pastry, and special dessert selections by the famously delicious Black Dog Gelato. The evenings entertainment was provided by The Downtown Band, and Vanilla Video was the wedding day videographer. The whole day was beautiful and fun, just like Julia and Barry,

Congrats Julia and Barry!
