Marine and Joel Bokelman

Marnie and Joel's ceremony took place on a beautiful spring day this past Memorial Day weekend. The ceremony was at the United Methodist Church in the Chicago Temple with 300 guests in attendance. 
One thing I asked Marnie and Joel when we first started planning was, "What do you want to remember most about your wedding day"? They both replied in unision, "We want to remember everyone dancing and having fun all night!"

I can’t count how many times I thought in my head during the planning process of my wedding, “I am so glad I have Ali.” My husband and I were able to be stress free during the whole planning process as well as the weekend of our wedding. We are not originally from Chicago, and Ali helped us find vendors that we would have never known about if we did not have her help. What we really liked is that she had a good relationship already with all the vendors and worked well with them. Joel and I felt like ours was the only wedding Ali was planning. She is enthusiastic and always makes herself available. Our guests knew we had hired a wedding planner and after the wedding, so many people came up to us and told us how amazed they are by Ali. She did an awesome job! We would recommend her to everyone!
