Salvage One Wedding from Jayne Weddings and Events

I surrender. That's right, I officially surrender. Because this couple? They have completely out-styled me and then some (and then some more). As a Bride that initially never intended to have a big Chicago wedding, I am sure glad that she finally caved - because the day she said I do to her new (handsome) man at Salvage One might go down as one of the stylish days in SMP Illinois history. That day came to life via the visions...

Home on a Saturday night

by Molly Schemper Holy moly! When I started this business 8.5 years ago I never imagined I'd be home by 5 pm on a Saturday night...in December. Nine years ago when FIG was a mere notion in my head I was in love with the idea of being my own boss. I was excited to be in the kitchen learning alongside my boyfriend, experimenting with new recipes, and having fun serving, bartending, and cooking at parties. I never thought of the fact that one day I'd have employees that would do these things...
