What do you get when two people who met in chemistry class get married? An amazing unity chemistry demo (it turned pink!), incredibly intelligent clients, and the danciest dance party of all time. Sherry and Noah were married on an absolutely gorgeous day in August, and we just loved being a part of their day! Between the incredibly touching MOB toast, the cutest first look ever, the sweet ceremony, and the dancing PhDs, it was a night to remember! Just look at those smiles. These two could not be ANY cuter. Braxton Black captured it perfectly. 

Congratulations, you gorgeous, wonderful people!

Allison and Jonathan's day was one right out of the storybooks.  The wedding took place at the Chateau Ritz and it was a beautiful setting for these two.  The romantic ceremony set the tone for the whole day. Allison truly looked like a princess as she walked down the candle lit aisle.  After the wedding, the couple greeted all of their guests just as the King and Queen of England would. They walked out onto the balcony overlooking all of their guests who were waving American and British flags. They waved to their adoring guests and then proceeded down the elegant staircase surrounded by their loving bridal party. As they walked through their loved ones, guests threw rose petals on the beautiful couple.  The rest of the evening was filled with laughter, dancing and most of all, love. They even had the amazing John Cleese provide a speech for the couple! We wish these two a lifetime of love and happiness!

For a couple whose relationship started over grilled cheese at Cheesie's, their wedding was everything but!

Kristin + Bobby said their I do's at the Hilton Orrington in downtown Evanston on October 3rd. Outside, the blustery wind brought the first cold day of Fall, but inside hearts were aglow with warmth and love as the adorable bride wed her dapper groom inside a candlelit, red rose petaled ballroom. 

Guests were invited to enjoy cocktails and reception, also held at the hotel, immediately following the beautiful ceremony. The mother of the bride gave a touching speech, while the co-maids of honor and best man all rocked their toasts. Even after indulging in a gourmet dinner, guests still packed the dance floor the entire night, stopping only to partake in the sweets table and late night soft pretzel buffet complete with nacho cheese and mustards. In all it was a "nice little" wedding day for a lovely couple; we wish Kristin+Bobby all the best!

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!
