What a memorable evening we had with Karen and John! These two are so sweet and fun and their wedding reflected those personalities perfectly. From a show stopping fan dance to “Sisters” from White Christmas performed by the bride’s sisters to the bouncing dance floor (literally— you could feel wood floors move when then dancing got ca-razy), to a server getting down with wedding guests on said dance floor. If Karen and John’s wedding is any indication of how they will spend the rest of their lives, it will be filled with style, fun, and a lot of laughter together.

What to even say about these two cuties! We absolutely loved working with Meghan + Daniel. They are super sweet and kind, had a great vision, and Meghan had so many lists, it made our job so easy! We loved the simple elegance of their day, and we loved that they chowed down on Five Guys after their ceremony. From the venue, to the food, to the band, it was a excellently planned day filled with so much love and laughter.

Congratulations, Meghan + Danny! We know you’ll have a beautiful life (and get a beautiful dog!) together!

When one of us gets married, you know it's going to be gorgeous! Our fabulous Assistant Coordinator Alyssa has been a huge asset to AELO, and we were THRILLED when she got engaged and started to plan her own wedding. She tied the knot with her handsome husband Ed down in St. Louis, and we couldn't resist sharing the incredible photos from Sarah Corbett Photography. Gorgeous, no?! She is a FIERCE beauty. 

Alyssa thanks her AELO teammates who have helped her in the planning process and helped her feel cool, calm, confident, and collected the day of the wedding!

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.
