A beautiful Fall day + a couple in love = a perfect wedding day. That is the day we shared with Beckley & Matt. Their wedding day began with the ladies getting ready at The Chicago Club. There was a joyful vibe between Beckley, her mom and her bridesmaids. There were gifts, mimosas, much laughter…and hairspray. The fabulous Maggie from Gerber + Scarpelli was capturing all of the little details, including Beckley’s gorgeous gown.
Beckley & Matt chose to have a First Look at The Chicago Club and then a photo session with their wedding party and immediate families. When all of the photos were wrapped up, everyone boarded the shuttle bus and headed to the ceremony. Beckley and her dad rode in style to the ceremony, in a 1962 Silver Cloud Rolls Royce – it was beautiful!! And talk about beautiful…St. Clement is one of the most spectacular churches in Chicago. That is where Beckley and Matt exchanged their vows in front of their family and friends.
After the ceremony, guests boarded shuttle buses that took them to The Chicago Club for the reception. The cocktail hour took place in the Lounge with guests noshing on Australian Lamb Chops and Mini Crab Cakes. Guests were then invited upstairs for dinner, where Fill It With Flowers had provided fabulous décor and centerpieces. Beckley & Matt decided on a kings table for their reception and enjoyed their three-course meal surrounded by family and friends.
After dinner, guests made their way back to the Lounge for dancing. The Chris Sarlas Orchestra rocked the house and guests continued to pack the dance floor all night long. A few guests were able to break away for the Dessert station, but everyone mostly wanted to dance, dance, dance!! Congratulations again to Beckley & Matt!
