The Intercontinental Chicago Wedding of Katie and Michael

Katie and Mike exchanged their vows at the historic St Joseph's Catholic church in Old Town. I LOVED working with Katie and Mike Cunningham on their November 3rd Wedding at St Joseph's Church and the Renaissance Ballroom at the Intercontiental Hotel. Everything about Katie and Mike's wedding was wonderfully elegant and sophisicated. Katie chose a black and white color scheme for her modern wedding style with an accent of green in some of the flowers.

From the moment we sat down to meet Ali, we felt completely at ease with her and knew we would enjoy working with her in planning our wedding. She was involved with all aspects of our wedding from the beginning to the day of and we couldn’t be happier that we chose this option. Ali kept us on task from our first meeting—letting us know what details we should be completing at present and what we should be thinking of next at all points in the planning process. Wedding planning is stereotypically known to be stressful due to the sheer amount of time and effort put into planning every little detail to make a wedding the special, magical day that the bride and groom envision. However, I can honestly say that planning your wedding does not have to be stressful! With Ali’s help, we actually had a lot of fun planning our big day and I surprised myself as well as my family and friends with how calm I remained throughout the entire planning process. We really appreciated Ali’s vendor suggestions and absolutely LOVED the vendors we chose for our wedding. 
Thanks to Ali, our wedding day played out without a hitch and we got to focus on each other, our family and friends rather than worry about the many details that go into having such an event run smoothly. We highly recommend Ali and are so thankful for all of the work she put into making our wedding day “perfect.”
