Bonnie & Logan

Oak Brook Bath & Tennis Club
Oak Brook, IL
On December 22, 2017, Oak Brook Bath & Tennis Club had the pleasure of welcoming Bonnie and Logan’s 165 guests to their charming space, where they chose to host their reception. The couple fell in love with the secluded rustic charm and exceptional service that Oak Brook Bath & Tennis Club offers. The warm and welcoming atmosphere of the historic clubhouse made everyone feel right at home from the moment they arrived.
PERSONALIZED WEDDING DÉCOR
Whether sitting by the double-sided stone fireplace decorated with old family photos, lights, pinecones and greenery or gazing out the floor-to-ceiling windows, guests were enamored by natural beauty that surrounded them and how the couple used their unique style to accentuate it. The 20 acres of natural woodlands were the perfect backdrop to Bonnie and Logan’s wedding vision, and we love how they used white, steel and eggplant linens to bring the outdoors in!
Timothy Whaley & Associates captured the couple’s joy outside under string lights as well as inside under 35-foot vaulted ceilings. Thanks to professional lighting and floral decorations by Phillip’s Flowers, the couple’s wedding vision came to life in beautiful ways that delighted them more than they could have imagined.
MOUTHWATERING PASSED HORS D’OEUVRES AND COCKTAILS
When working with Tasty Catering to design a custom menu that everyone would love, Bonnie and Logan wanted to start with appetizers that were unique yet popular. At 6:30pm, guests were treated to these delectable small bites like bacon and cheese baby reds, cherry tomatoes with bacon and aioli, BBQ bites and smokehouse dates.
During the cocktail hour, guests also found a great selection of drinks. House red and white wines as well as domestic beers, sodas and mixers were all available. But Bonnie and Logan also featured some of their favorite drinks.
PLEASING DINNER SERVICE
At 7:30pm, guests took a seat for a lovely dinner service. To start off their wonderful meal, they were served a fresh baby spinach salad. This was comprised of seasonal berries, toasted almonds and sweet chili and pickled ginger vinaigrette with balsamic dressing. Tasty Catering then brought out the dairy-free sautéed chicken breast in white wine sauce with parsley and gluten-free petite filet for guests with specific dietary requirements while all others enjoyed their choice of delicious entrees, including a petite filet, sautéed chicken breast, bone-in pork chop and eggplant milanese.
Thinking of everyone, Bonnie and Logan also requested unique meals for the kids and vendors. From mac & cheese to turkey and brie wraps, there was something for everyone.
FUN DESSERTS AND ENTERTAINMENT
After dinner, Hawaiian Kona coffee was set out for guests to help themselves to as they explored the array of delectable sweet treats. The place card table was flipped to become a candy table, and a stunning variety of pies by B’s Sweet Bites were set out. Bonne and Logan’s taste was on display at the elevated dessert table and in the fun entertainment.
With John LeRose from Party Train in charge of music, guests were full of energy and excitement as they celebrated. Best Booth Plus provided a photo booth, so guests could take home memories of the outstanding party!
