Andrea and I went to college together, so of course I was so excited when she asked me to help plan her wedding. Andrea and Mike chose the Chicago History Museum for their wedding reception and their ceremony was held at Assumption Greek Orthodox Church in Chicago.
Andrea and her bridesmaids got ready on the wedding morning at Public Hotel in the heart of the gold coast. This iconic landmark is decorated in a “no color” palette making it a perfect backdrop for photographing any bride. Andrea looked stunning in the lobby photos Kris Kasperek captured and her and Mike were able to spend some time back at the hotel post ceremony to get more shots there.
The bride’s mom designed and created her bolero and also created personalized fur stoles for each of the bridesmaids. I loved them so much I have had Andrea’s Mom create them for other clients of ours! They are gorgeous!
Andrea carried a bouquet of peach Juliette garden roses with ivory Polo and white Majolika roses. We decorated the guest tables with silver footed bowls filled with lush mounds of Juliette roses, white hydrangea and peach peonies. Skyline kept the party going all night long! Congrats on coming up on your one year anniversary Andrea and Mike!
