Weddings and beer…two of our favorite things mixed together made for an excellent wedding show, Wedtoberfest! The event was held at Artifact Events in the Ravenswood District of Chicago. We were honored to be selected to be a part of the show curated by founders of Naturally Yours Events and Indiewed. Here are a few images that captured this fun fall event!

On Friday night we hosted a Cage and Aquarium DJ showcase “Date Night” at the Logan Theater. Fifteen of our DJs performed throughout the night for our guests. This event gives couples that have booked with Cage and Aquarium for their wedding a chance to view our DJs in action. Here’s a brief photo recap of the event!

DJs will be rotating sets all evening while our guests enjoy drinks in the lounge and catch a flick afterward. To RSVP for this event please email office@cageandaquarium.com.

We were thrilled to take part in another fantastic Indiewed event at the Ravenswood Event Center on February 6. We look forward to taking part in this show of curated wedding professionals every year. Indiewed is an alternative to a traditional wedding expo event, exactly the type of event where we feel at home! We enjoyed having our booth on the first floor among the main action this year. The third floor “Camp Indiewed” lounge was pretty amazing as well! Here are a few shots recapping the day by Cage and Aquarium photographer, Alex Friedland.

We are very excited to share Hayley and Jake’s July wedding on the blog today! We began the day at the beautiful Drake Hotel downtown for getting ready photos and then headed to North Avenue Beach for bridal party photos. The ceremony was held on Northwestern’s campus at Alice Millar Chapel. The guests continued to Loyola’s campus for the reception. The outdoor cocktail hour was held on the patio of Piper Hall overlooking Lake Michigan. The reception took place next door at the Mundelein Center. It was a pleasure to work with some fantastic vendors for this event including Loreen from Clementine Custom Events, Nika Vaughan (hair/makeup), Lexoria Films, and Robert’s Floral Design. And there is no doubt our favorite wedding guest was Hayley and Jake’s son, Clark! Here are a few of our favorite photos from the day!

We love the story about Leslie and Sam first meeting at Castaways on North Avenue beach after a volleyball game a summer evening not too long ago. It was very appropriate they picked the pier at North Avenue Beach for their first look! We also sneaked in a few photos at Castaways before heading to A New Leaf for their ceremony and reception. The evening was complete with catering by Hearty Boys and florals by A New Leaf. Here are a few of our favorite moments from the day.

Another year has gone by and it was time for another fantastic IndieWed event! This past Saturday, January 31st, Cage + Aquarium had the honor of joining the longest running independent bridal fair in the country once more. We had a fabulous time alongside a vibrant mix of independent wedding artisans on the third floor of Ravenswood Event Center in Chicago. In the eclectic and bright “Moroccan Daydream Wedding Lounge” (a vision of Jayne Weddings and Art of Imagination), there was a colorful spread of vendors who all came together to share their love for the magic of weddings.

Cage + Aquarium DJs Tyler and Lexi switched off as the third floor vibe-setters from 10-4. Tyler took care of spinning pure vinyl classics, while Lexi handled the trendy upbeat jams. The combination of musical offerings complimented the motif while also keeping it fresh. One of Chicago’s finest restaurants, The Publican, offered attendees samples of their gourmet meats and cocktails. Spa In Your Space kindly provided complimentary manicures and massages, which contributed to the luxury vibe of the third floor. Seasoned cake artist, Elysia Root of Elysia Root Cakes, had one of her flawless wedding cakes on display in the middle of the room (Moroccan-themed, of course!). Black Dog Gelato had some sweet treats on their table, including their tasty gelato cookie sandwiches. Smilebooth had their photo booth open for business, and Julia Franzosa photography was also on display. All in all, IndieWed 2015 seemed to top all the rest, on the third floor alone!
