What can we even say about our former coordinator Sam's wedding? We were thrilled and honored to be a part of her big day, and we KNEW it was going to be epic, we just didn't realize HOW epic. She and Pat are such a perfect fit, and the whole day was a perfect celebration of the two of them. Just look at that cake, made by Sam's mom. Harry Potter, Star Wars, Marvel, Game of Thrones...these two have their fandoms and they flaunt it! We loved every single second of this special day, including their two perfect puppers walking down the aisle. We adore Sam, and she and Pat were just glowing all day! 

After the initial shock and laughter seeing Sam in the Pikachu costume, Pat said "Let's get married" several times. We just love these weirdos. Congratulations, you two!

CEREMONY: ST. ANDREW'S CATHOLIC CHURCH | RECEPTION: CITY VIEW LOFT | FLOWERS: STEVE'S FLOWER MARKET | PHOTOGRAPHY: ERIN EVANGALINE | BAND: BLUEWATER KINGS

Holly and Mark had a beautiful September day for their wedding.  These two avid travelers said their “I do’s” at the beautiful and ornate St. Andrews surrounded by their loved ones. The reception was at the scenic City View Loft.  Their guests were welcomed with drinks and the smooth jazz sounds of the Bluewater Kings Band.  Holly and Mark are huge Cubs fans so of course they had to throw in some Cubs related things. Guests signed a custom Cubs jersey as their guest book and what better way to start off the night than to have the new Mr. and Mrs. walk into the reception to “Go Cubs Go” while waving the big W flag. Once dinner was over, the Bluewater Kings Band started the party with some great live music.  The guests filled the dance floor as they danced and sang the night away! Congratulations Holly and Mark! We wish you many years of happiness.

Austin + Dave are such lovely people, and we were so happy to have been a part of their day! Frost and Revel turned the Chicago Illuminating Company into a wedding DREAM for them, and they were just so in love it was hard not to tear up during the beautiful ceremony. Time Chicago ROCKED the dance floor all night, and everyone had a blast. The love in the room was overflowing for these two wonderful people, and every element of the day -- from the perfect weather, to the sweetest first dance -- combined to make it one for the record books.

Congratulations, you two! We know you're going to have an incredible life together!

VENUE: CITY WINERY | BAND: THE CHICAGO CATZ | PHOTOGRAPHER: MICHAEL PAUL PHOTOGRAPHY | LIGHTING: MDM ENTERTAINMENT | FLOWERS: FLORAL UNIVERSITY | HAIR: THEODORA BOURIKAS | MAKEUP: DOMINICA SZWAINOS

Many congratulations to Renata and Colin who were married on a spectacular June day. City Winery was the perfect venue for this music loving couple (their first date was at a Talking Heads cover band concert!) as it played a major part of their ceremony - Renata walked down the aisle to a beautiful unplugged rendition of "Here, There, Everywhere" sung by her sister and their readings included lyrics from Patti Smith's "I Was Looking for You' and Railroad Earth's "Right on Tune". Thanks to University Flowers the concert venue was transformed into a delightful array of mason jars filled with dried lavender and fresh blooms (IT SMELLED SO GOOD) and The Chicago Catz got everyone up on their feet! 

We could't be happier for these twO and wish them a lifetime of happiness!

What a pair! Amanda + Aldun got married on the absolutely gorgeous roof of Lacuna Artist Lofts in June, and it was such a perfect day for this fun-loving, generous, sweet couple. They met halfway around the world and tied the knot in Chicago in front of friends and family from all over the world. From the beautiful vows to the packed dance floor, to the late night hot dog cart, these two wonderful people had so much fun and were so in love, it was palpable. 

Congratulations, Amanda + Aldun! We'll always love #doubleAAndre!
