rotundacouples6

The wedding in The Rotunda was in the afternoon and I was set up in a corner near a window.  The light was lovely, but I was afraid people would not wonder over to be drawn, especially since the bar was on the opposite wall and this was a big place. Not only did they find me, they gathered around and created a wonderfully hilarious atmosphere. rotundacouples1 rotundacouples2 rotundacouples3 rotundacouples4 rotundacouples5

My drawings reflect the ambiance of a party.  I can gage the humor in the drawings to what I hear around me and to how people react and talk about the drawings.  Well, this crowd rated a ten and you can see that in the work.

It should be easy to match the drawings to the photos of the couples.

Waukesha, near Milwaukee, has a spectacular building that was formerly a bank and is now a party venue.  The Rotunda is the place to see and be seen, perfect for weddings.

This wedding at the end of August was so wonderful that I have to devote two posts to it.  I’ll start with the general scene.  You would think I’d have a shot of the bridal couple, but they sat for me very briefly, I finished the drawing on the fly, walked it over to the bride and then forgot about the photo business.

The next post will highlight six couples from that wonderful wedding bash.

Nadja copy

This is the wedding present for the couple that already has everything.  When your friends are famous for having everything, the only thing left for you to do is to give them something funny because a little humorous gift tells them that you think they are perfect and complete. Voila!  A caricature by that famous Whatsername.

All bellybuttons and toes, ha!

I enjoyed drawing this pretzel   Try this at home!

Thank you, Nadia, for finding the perfect artist for this project.

dEARBORN1

From Prospect Heights I drove directly downtown, taking LaSalle Street to avoid the distaste of Taste of Chicago.  A movie was being shot with the Board of Trade as the backdrop, like The Untouchables except this was all about touching.  A bride was puckering up to kiss her kneeling new husband. Camera men circling around. Ah, I love this town! Traffic was barely slowed by this.  Then I noticed the bridesmaids near the columns of Northern Trust.  Ermmm, not a movie scene after all.  This was a real wedding.  I love this town!

dEARBORN2A dEARBORN2B

The party on South Dearborn was equally glamorous. My hostess, the mother of the groom,  flew in from Washington DC.  The mother of the bride flew in from Las Vegas.  The wedding will be in (where did they say?) I think, California or Hawaii.  Much of the family is from the Midwest.  So, natch, you gotta throw the bridal shower in Chicago.  That’s because you love this town!

Thank you, Lou Ann!———————————————

bachelorette1

The Bachelorette Party seems to be a sophisticated idea. I say that because the only bachelorette parties I’ve done have had highly educated, chic women in them.  This one, bachelorette2at Brimfield, had a couple of MD’s and a pilot, for example, plus an assortment of teachers and financial advisors.  Ok, enough with the sociology notes.  You can see from the pictures, that they were also very beautiful.  As for the chic part, going with the Great Gatsby theme, brings out the radiance in women.  And the hilarity!  Nothing like an all-girl party for hilarity!

Brimfield, btw, is a store on Clark near Bryn Mawr for antique hunters and decorators.  bachelorettesceneThey have a party room upstairs.  Not to be missed!

SatNtFev
This is the bridal couple from that Halloween Wedding I did on, well, Halloween last year.
https://katherinehilden.wordpress.com/2015/12/17/wedding-halloween/
I didn’t get a chance to draw them at the party, so I drew them later, from photos. They had changed from their formal wedding attire into costumes, their theme being Saturday Night Fever.

Hallow1
This fabulous wedding was held on October 31st—Halloween–in a Hallow2formal banquet hall in Homer Glen. I must admit, I was a bit skeptical about the combination Wedding+Halloween, but all my doubts were dispelled the moment I walked into the high-ceiling room: black table clothes, black-covered banquet chairs with gleaming orange satin bows, orange spot lights running up the high walls. The bride and groom had changed from their formal, conventional wedding attire into Saturday Night Fever threads and did a lovely lead dance to the Bee-Gees. The guests were dressed UP in elegant theatrical costumes. I drew everything from Bonnie & Clyde to Tutankhamen to Cleopatra & Her Penguin Escort to an assortment of exquisitely painted sculls. Really, this was not a trick-or-treat crowd. People had flown in from the coasts and given a lot of thought to their presentation, and were willing to pay for it. So, lesson learned, if you know your friends and they’re as imaginative as you are, go ahead, have a Halloween Wedding! Oh, and have me as the caricaturist.
