We at Soirée Weddings & Events are fortunate enough to help beautiful couples plan, coordinate, and execute their special days; and sometimes we’re fortunate enough to do it twice! Such is the case with Kristin and Fish! You may remember their fabulous Guatemalan wedding from a few weeks ago. Well, this gorgeous duo also held a wonderful reception for family and friends in Chicago.
