I am so excited for one of my client's weddings to be featured on Style Me Pretty Blog today! And the bride is Chicago photographer celebrity, Belen Aquino, from Gerber Scarpelli. Belen and Drew had the most wonderful wedding that I was honored to be a part of. It was at her parent's home in McLean, Virginia and was a magical night.
We couldn’t have asked for a better person to help us plan the best day of our lives. Our wedding day was more than we could have dreamed of, and we have Ali to thank. We will never forget walking into our reception – the room took our breath away. All of our friends and family were amazed at how much fun we had planning the wedding. She took the stress out of the planning and allowed us to enjoy every step leading up to our big day! There is not enough that can be said about Ali. She is an amazing person and an incredibly talented wedding planner. We feel lucky that we were able to work with her and cannot thank her enough!
Being from out of state, I did not know where to begin to plan a wedding in Chicago. I knew I needed help and when I met Ali I knew she would make our wedding exceptional. I was impressed from the beginning with her professionalism, organizational skills, honesty and enthusiasm. As the months of planning went by I realized that I simply don’t know what I would have done without her. Ali has an amazing ability to match locations and vendors to her clients’ individual tastes and personalities while staying within a budget. The planning process was so easy for me because Ali took care of everything.
I absolutely LOVED working with Lora and Tim on their May 5th wedding in 2007.
Thanks Michael from www.gerberscarpelliweddings.com for the GORGEOUS pictures!
Leslie and Tyson Cornell's wedding was a windy and warm summer day at the Harold Washington Library in Chicago. The library looked beautiful as the sun set and the twinkle on the 400 votives lit around the library started to shimmer. Leslie loved pink and orange flowers and even picked out a pink wedding cake. The guests dined on filet mignon andrelaxed to a flamenco guitar during dinner. They later rocked the night away to the tunes of the Jeff Stitely Orchestra!
