Sarah & Alan, The Blackstone Hotel
I was thrilled when Sarah called me to help coordinate her wedding. Sarah and I went to high school together and I was so excited to help Alan and her with the plans for their March wedding! Sarah and Alan were both interviewing for their medical residency programs before they tied the knot. Both of them were matched a few weeks before their wedding! It was a busy but yet exciting time for the two of them!
They chose The Blackstone Hotel for their ceremony and reception. The ballroom at The Blackstone Hotel is beautiful – with windows overlooking Grant Park and Lake Michigan and the newly renovated space were perfect for their wedding reception. The incredibly talented Natalie with Hello Darling created the gorgeous ceremony and reception décor. Guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in Art Hall while we set the ballroom for dinner. Front of House was amazing as always and kept the party going all night long. It was a blast spending the year helping Sarah and Alan. They are the sweetest couple and I know it was hard planning a wedding in Chicago and not knowing where they were going to be moving afterwards! Through it all it was obvious that they were the perfect match. And now that they have started their life as newlyweds in New York it was a real pleasure to have been able to help my high school friend and her new husband.
Congrats Sarah and Alan!
