Happy Anniversary Sarah & Brian!!

Happy one year to Sarah and Brian!  A year ago they had a lovely Spring wedding at Holy Name Cathedral, followed by a classic and elegant reception at Chicago’s iconic, The Drake Hotel.

Bellissima Photography captured the day…and oh was it so perfectly pretty!  Sarah wore an incredible Vera Wang gown.  It was magnificent on her!

Some of the evenings most memorable moments were the Russian traditions such as dances and toasts, the Father/Daughter Waltz and a Hora that got everyone out on the dance floor!  It was a night to remember!  Congrats guys!  Here’s to many, many more fabulous years!


Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day!

Happy One Year!

Happy Anniversary to our April 6, 2013 clients: Lindsay + Brandon and Alisa + Jason!

Lindsay and Brandon packed their bags and headed to Sonoma, California for their lovely, vino-inspired, destination wedding ceremony.  They had 15 of their closest friends and family with them to celebrate their nuptials at the Lodge at Sonoma.  The weather was lovely and the event was perfectly intimate!  Memorial weekend, Lindsay’s parents hosted all their local family and friends at their home in Batavia for part II — a back yard bash equipped with a pig roast and catering from Sweet Baby Ray’s, a gelato cart from Black Dog Gelato, and the MOB’s home made italian creme and limonchello cakes!  Both celebrations were such lovely affairs!

Live music aficionados, Alisa and Jason, hosted their April 6th wedding at Chicago’s historical Vic Theater in Lincoln Park.  The bride and groom ceremony took place on stage, which late became stage to a line up of several live music bands during the reception.  Guests enjoyed a three course dinner from Wolfgang Puck Catering and delectable cupcakes from Chicago Cupcake.  Such a fun couple, and unique, one-of-a-kind wedding!
