Lauren & Matt's JW Marriott Celebration

Lauren and Matt had a beautiful wedding at one of Chicago's newest wedding venues - The JW Marriott. After a wonderful mass at Old St Pats and pictures around the city, it was back to the ballroom with gorgeous decor thanks to the hard work of Natalie Walsh of Hello, Darling. The party was jamming and the guests danced all night to the musical stylings of Toast and Jam. Thanks so much to Lauren and Matt for letting us be a part of the wedding day!

Project Gigeo - A Surprise Wedding Proposal

Love it when a plan comes together! A few weeks ago, we had the good fortune to be involved in a very special project. Ken wanted to propose to his girlfriend Elena. His dream was to have meaningful events from their relationship performed for her that would culminate in the perfect moment for him to pop the question. He brought in a crack team of wedding professionals to help make his idea into reality. The ladies at Greatest Expectations helped plan every detail. We were there to capture all the fun and craziness. Shift Focus Productions was also on hand to film the whole evening. It all went down at Lula Cafe. While Ken hid in the back, friends acted out the scenes from their relationship. A few dozen extras were on hand to make the restaurant feel full and to help create the perfect setting. Everything went off without a hitch! Check out the video below to see the whole thing in action! Congrats Ken and Elena!!!

Anne and Landis's Nature Museum Nuptuals

Anne and Landis have a history. Almost a decade ago their older sisters tried to set them up, but it didn't quite stick. Well, thankfully, we got to celebrate a big milestone with them as they tied the knot at Old St Pats before a rousing reception at The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum. With assistance from Amanda Johnson at Shannon Gail Weddings and music by The Chicago Catz the party went off perfectly! Anne's dad and brothers even got up to perform a couple traditional Irish songs. The whole thing was beautiful and we're so proud we were able to be a part of it. Check out their slideshow below!
