From Simply Perfect by Melissa… Jessica and Jordan are a sweet couple from the Cincinnati area who planned a Chicago destination wedding. Jessica wanted to add some quintessential Chicago elements while creating a soft, feminine feel with a mix of vintage and contemporary.
Her day started off being pampered and treated like a princess in the famous Princess Diana Suite at The Drake Hotel. The couple tied the knot in a beautiful Catholic Church- Holy Family Parish. Guests were transported around town in trolleys allowing them to take advantage of the sights of Chicago. The 95th Floor of the John Hancock Building at the Signature Room for her reception brought in classic Chicago, along with some skyline touches here and there.
Guests were seated at square tables covered in gunmetal grey with each place setting perfectly set a with beaded charger and ornate silver trimmed plate topped with a personalized round menu, and stemware to match. Her soft floral shades, gorgeous billowing dress, and the overall inviting ambiance of her celebration created a perfect combination bringing her vision to life.
