Every year I hand off the 3rd floor lounge during our Chicago show to an area event stylist. In the past we’ve had a whiskey-inspired lounge, a vaudeville-themed soiree, and a Moroccan-meets-California hideaway. This year I am excited to share this year’s lounge: Camp Indie Wed. In order to get in the mood for the show, a select group of vendors went to camp where we worked on an amazing styled shoot (some of which you will see at Indie Wed. Here is a behind the scenes peek.
Camp is in session at this year’s Indie Wed! Make it a point to climb the stairs to the third floor of the show to meet our exclusive Indie Wed vendors who will bring you right back to your best summer camp memories. Boutique planning and styling company Anticipation Events has curated the chicest campground in the city. Follow the trail signs to meet all of the counselors you’ll need to plan your big day. Chow down in the mess hall with treats from Feast & Imbibe and Elysia Root Cakes and drink some grown up Bug Juice courtesy of Thalia Hall Chicago’s new offsite beverage catering team, The Juice Box. Circle round the campfire for a sing-a-long with Gussied Band and say hello to the team who will capture your best memories: Jeremy Lawson Photography andLEAP Weddings. Spend some time in Arts & Crafts and meet EVR Paper, The Foxglove Studio and relax while the team from Debra Petrielli Freelance Hair & Make-up Artists creates the perfect braid at our camp “Braid Bar.” Don’t miss a minute of #CampIndieWed at Ravenswood Event Center on February 6!
