From Estera Events…Matt and Michelle have been together since they met in college at Purdue. When deciding where to host their wedding that included many out of town guests, Matt and Michelle picked The Palmer House for it’s rich history and Chicago feel — not to mention Michelle’s love for black and gold. Her style is sophisticated and chic, but the two of them are some of the most down to earth people we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. This is the first wedding we’ve done in a long time where the bride and groom waited to see each other until their ceremony, so there was such an excitement and added rush to the ceremony knowing Matt and Michelle were going to be seeing each other for the first time. Their emotions were real and everyone in the church could feel it. The entire day was filled with emotion and Jessica from JED Photography captured that in the best way. After the romantic ceremony at Notre Dame de Chicago, guests were welcomed to the Palmer House for cocktails in the mezzanine looking over the hotel. Dinner was served in the historic Empire Room followed by dancing late into the night. In keeping with the Chicago theme, late night hotdogs were served…no ketchup, of course. Congratulations again, Matt & Michelle, we wish you the absolute best and thank you, again, for letting us be part of your wedding day! – Bianca, Estera Events
From JED Photography… Michelle and Matt have the type of relationship that makes you smile inside because they share the love they have together with all of those around them, a contagious and timeless connection. I am completely inspired by Michelle and Matt as a couple and the style of their wedding day was such a reflection of who they are. In the year of talking with Michelle about her wedding, I heard her sharing pieces of her vision along the way but when it came down to the day of I saw this labor of love come to fruition. Every detail from the dress, Matts sock-less feet to Michelle’s beautiful shoes,the ring her father gifted her the morning of the wedding and the veil she borrowed from her matron of honor reflected Michelle + Matt, one of the most caring and enjoyable couples I know. – Jessica, JED Photo
