Chicago Wedding Special

A contemporary loft is transformed into an enchanted forest in this Chicago wedding special.

  • The happy couple wants to hold their dream wedding at home in their loft.
  • Mood lighting and floral accents complete the dream-like scene.
  • Phyllis Olson and Howard Jones are eager to get married in their enchanted forest and live happily ever after.
  • The altar, with its dreamy forest silhouettes glow, transforms to a buffet where the cake and fondue fountains await the guests.
  • To top off the enchanted forest motif, Fontana creates these whimsical lanterns.
  • Design coordinator Kelly Edwards uses dual-purpose benches to provide seating for the ceremony and reception.
  • The ottomans are covered in white satin to coordinate with the hanging fabric walls and are topped in white faux fur.
  • When the couple finally gets to walk down the aisle into the enchanted forest wedding that the Design on a Dime team has created for them, they'll do so in style.
  • Edwards creates funky flower arrangements by adding white feathers and silver spray-painted branches to her arrangements of hydrangeas and calla lilies, artfully placed in tall vases. © 2010 Scripps Networks, L.L.C. All rights reserved
