On May 25, 2019 we celebrated the wedding of Alexandra and Jeremy. Their wedding was full of special surprises which you’ll have to keep reading to find out.
This was a real Chicago wedding. Taking place at the Millennium Knickerbocker’s crystal ballroom just off of Michigan Ave and down the street from the lake.
The ceremony took place in the ballroom and featured gorgeous blue and gold floral and design work by Yanni Designs. These gold pedestals truly complemented the room and gave it a regale feeling when walking down the aisle.
But once down the aisle it gets even better with a gorgeous alter design covered in flowers. Not to mention the beautiful arrangement that framed the stage along with an elegant pipe and drape. And let’s just say for the ceremony itself you could feel the couples love for each other with every word of their vows.
As guests were invited upstairs for cocktail hour. The couple then headed across the street to 4th pespirtatian church for their newlywed photos. Which turned out stunning thanks to Miller & Miller photography. That isn’t where the amazing photos end. The bridesmaids and groomsmen both adventured around Chicago before the ceremony for offsite photos.
The men went first traveling on the trolley to Olive park. After all did you really have a Chicago wedding if you don’t get photos with the lake and the skyline? Once they returned they staged what is one of my favorite groomsmen shot to date. Don’t they just look like they could be on the cover of magazine?! And this was taken in the Knickerbocker’s hotel bar!
During cocktail hour the bride and groom were welcomed back into the ballroom for the room reveal. The photos speak for themselves. The beautiful gold and blue arrangements from the ceremony made their way onto the tables along with gorgeous place settings and to top it off a box of chocolates for each guest to enjoy.
The reception is where the bride and groom truly shined. For starters they cut their cake not with a knife like most couples but instead with a sword!! But if you think the unique elements stop there just wait! Not only did they have a beautifully choreographed first dance that highlighted the brides beautiful ballgown. Man does that dress twirl! But they also shared in their first karaoke! Yes! The bride and groom love to sing together so it was only appropriate that they preform their first duet as husband and wife for all of their family and friends.
