Tell us about your wedding.
My wedding was truly an amazing and crazy day and I can remember almost every single detail. We got married in Chicago. Our ceremony was at St. Clement Church and reception at the Chicago Yacht Club – complete with dinner, dancing and even Navy Pier fireworks!
I have a music background and am a foodie, so those two elements were super important. We had the most incredible photographer that captured the day better than I could have imagined. His focus is more commercial work as of the last several years, so we had to bribe him with steaks to do our wedding (ha!). I was the lead planner and got a lot of help from my husband, family, and friends. Everything came together well, but looking back, I totally wish I had hired at least a day of coordinator! 😉
What wedding story do you tell all the time? One of the couples I worked with had the best getaway vehicle…a tractor that belonged to the groom! It picked them up outside of Shedd Aquarium on the Museum Campus. And to top it all off, we kept it a complete surprise for the groom, so the look on his face was priceless when he walked outside and saw it in all its decked out in its wedding glory!
