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.

What a night. What a couple. We had so much fun with Vanessa and Rene! These two fantastic people finally said their vows in front of everyone they love after ten years of dating! Everything was absolutely perfect, despite the boiling heat and the cocktail hour thunderstorm. Ovation was the perfect venue for Pollen's flowy romantic flowers, and Real Kitchen provided an excellent meal. Then they salsa'd the night away! Excellent party, amazing couple, and a room full of love. Congratulations, you two! Check out Erin Hoyt's work, beautiful as always.
