CEREMONY: ST. MICHAEL’S OLD TOWN | RECEPTION: CHICAGO CULTURAL CENTER | CATERING: KENMARE CATERING | FLOWERS: STEVE’S FLOWER MARKET | DJ: TOAST + JAM | PHOTOGRAPHER: CRISTINA G PHOTOGRAPHY | VIDEOGRAPHER: OLD NORTH FILM COMPANY | STYLIST: TAMARA MAKEUP + HAIR ARTISTRY | CAKE + DESSERT: BAKING INSTITUTE

It was definitely the "most wonderful time of the year" for Lauren and Brian last December.  Lauren, a labor and delivery nurse, met Brian, a principal, through Brian's aunt.  They were set up on a blind date and the rest is history! These two amazing human beings got married at the historic St. Michael's in Old Town.  With the intricate details of the church in the background, Lauren and Brian's closest friends and family watched as they exchanged vows.  Brian's aunt, who set them up, was even the flower girl! 

The Chicago Cultural Center set the stage for a night of fun and dancing.  Of course it was fitting that they entered their reception to the song "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year". The speeches did not disappoint either.  From the Father of the Bride speech filled with sound effects to the reminiscent speech from the maids of honor, laughter and tears filled the room! It was a spectacular evening for a spectacular couple! Congratulations Lauren and Brian!

VENUE: NORTHMOOR COUNTRY CLUB | PHOTGRAPHY: AMANDA MEGAN MILLER | FLORIST: FLEUR | BAND: HOWARD LEVY BAND | CHICAGO CHUPPAH | CAKE: BENT FORK BAKERY | VIDEOGRAPHER: VANILLA VIDEO

What a gorgeous start to the year! Jamie and Brian were super sweet, so easy to work with, and it was a total joy coordinating their wedding. From the sweet ceremony performed by Jamie's dad, to the adorable first dance and tear-inducing toasts, and the ROCKIN' dance floor, we had such a good time with these two! The Northmoor Country Club was a gorgeous setting, and our wonderful Amanda Megan Miller captured the day beautifully (which is pretty easy when the groom is adorable and the bride has that gorgeous Julia Roberts-esque smile)! Congratulations, Jamie and Brian! We know you're going to have the most amazing life together!
