We just got this video clip from the awesome, I Do Films in Chicago and we had to share it right away with our readers.
Last Monday the new JW Marriott Chicago celebrated with a Grand Opening Event. And wow was the event Grand! The hotel opened in November of last year and is a great addition to Chicago. Boasting two ballrooms, the JW Marriott is Chicago's newest luxury hotel to host weddings and corporate events. I am so excited to have a new venue to show to couples for consideration for their wedding.
I love my job as a wedding planner in Chicago and working with clients like Jessica and Ryan make it that much better! Jessica and Ryan were married on July 11th, 2009 at Old St Patrick's church in Chicago. Old St Patrick's church, dedicated on Christmas morning in 1846, was one of the few buildings to survive the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. It's survival makes it the oldest public building in Chicago. Jessica and Ryan's wedding was featured in Chicago Social Brides magazine and I decided this week to do a couple posts on their lovely wedding. Please enjoy some of their ceremony pictures today!
