Bridal Sign Up

Brooklyn Collins & Robert Yoshimura

December 10, 2011 | Chicago Illuminating Company

Bucking tradition, Rob picked out Brooklyn’s St. Pucci dress at Belle Vie Bridal Couture. The wickedly gorgeous bride stayed warm and elegant with a Vladana fur shawl from Etsy.

Shoes by Benjamin Adams from The Left Bank.

The bridesmaids wore Essie’s Masquerade Belle nail polish.

Caged lanterns from Heffernan Morgan Designs.

The fancy, four-tier cake by TipsyCake.

A Día de los Muertos skeleton decorated the groom’s chair.

The Couple
During a three-day getaway in Las Vegas, Rob proposed to his longtime love on the indoor gondola at The Venetian. His second surprise? An engagement dinner with family and friends.

The Details
For their winter wedding, the fantasy-loving couple, guided by Engaging Events by Ali, chose velvet tablecloths and drapes, candelabras and chandeliers to put a spooky spin on the space.

The Party
The Twilight soundtrack played during the three-course dinner catered by Paramount Events. Each table was named after a famous haunted house from the duo’s favorite show, Ghost Adventures.
