Downtown Chicago Winter Wedding Recap

We ended 2016 on such a high note with Bridey and Jimmy’s downtown Chicago wedding held in the W City Center hotel.  It’s hard to imagine two more laid back people – their wedding day was filled with laughter, joy, family, and friendship.  The matron of honor and best man’s speeches were both particularly memorable and giggle worthy, and Bridey’s dad, especially, made the crowd smile with his humor and warm memories of times spent with his daughter at their weekly lunches.

And leave it to good ole Mother Nature to give us all a good weather scare and bring a bit of drama to an otherwise completely smooth wedding day!  I guess the snowy forecast shouldn’t have surprised anyone – we are in Chicago, after all, and this WAS December!  Luckily that night, a scare is all it was and the snow didn’t affect anyone until the following day, well after Bridey and Jimmy’s festivities ended for the night!

Thanks to the vendors who worked on this wedding, especially to Gina Christine Photography.  Gina and her husband were such a fun photography team to spend the day with and the pictures are just gorgeous!  Also, shout outs to my pals at Fleur du Jour  for the oh so pretty, oh so seasonal decor.  I’m pretty sure Sarah is STILL at the hotel lighting candles, haha!  To Eric and his band Velocity, who kept the dance floor going all.night.long!  And finally, to the W Hotel City Center, a gorgeous venue for a wedding!
