Smit's Farms Greenhouse Wedding - Matt and Carmen


Bride and groom at Smit's Farms Greenhouse Wedding

Carmen and Matthew's Chicago Greenhouse Wedding at Smit's Farm IL was nothing short of a romantic dream. I was able to work with Carmen and Matt for their engagement photos in May. About halfway through their engagement session Carmen and Matt took out a razor to shave Matt's Beard so they could get photos of both looks. When they proceeded to do this in a public alley in broad daylight I knew we would be a perfect fit for one another.


These two kept their wedding vendor team on the small side for their Chicagoland wedding. They had their caterer's, the venue, Smit's Farms, and myself as their wedding vendor team. The wedding day was a labor of love put together by family and friends. The bridesmaids helped each other with their hair and makeup. The decor was supplied by the venue or family and friends. Then the flowers were from LD Trading, but Carmen's cousin assembled all of the flowers into bouquets !

Tips for Putting Together a Vendor Team

Next, are you unsure on where to start when searching for your wedding vendors? Make sure as you begin to search to look for the following things, style, experience, and comfortability. You want to make sure to start with looking for a style that fits your vision. If you don't like the product you're going to be buying then what is the point?
