Gina and Paul had a beautiful day in a beautiful setting! Our favorite thing about Ignite is using the glass pieces for the unity ceremony -- they then take those for the glass blowing demonstration, and the couple gets to keep the piece as a reminder of their joyful day! The whole day was relaxed, focused on joining the two families, and all about having fun! Congratulations, Gina and Paul! We're so glad we were a part of your day!

The darling Luna and Nick had an unbelievably gorgeous day at Garfield Park Conservatory! After a whirlwind wedding month in China, their American ceremony was low key, filled with love, and everyone had a blast dancing the night away! Our favorite moment was their choreographed first dance. It was absolutely gorgeous, and we loved being a part of each special moment. Congratulations, you two! 

AELO Alumni | Katie + Brandon 6/27/15

VENUE: HYATT LODGE MCDONALD'S CAMPUS | PHOTOGRAPHER: KAITLIN ANDERSON | CAKE: LEZZA SPUMONI & DESSERTS | FLORIST: SHAMROCK GARDEN FLORIST

It was a romantic evening on the beautiful grounds of the McDonalds campus.  Guests enjoyed cocktails on the dock overlooking the lake while the sun was shining. Once dinner was over, everyone enjoyed themselves with dancing, an ice cream sundae bar, and the photobooth. And no wedding at the McDonald's campus is complete without late night cheeseburgers! Katie + Brandon were so in love, and it was such a pleasure to be a part of their big day. All the best, you two!
