Emily + Marek

I am so happy to be sharing this amazing wedding with you! I had so much fun working with Emily and Marek on their wedding day and knew at our first meeting that Emily and I would have a blast working together! Emily had a creative and fun, yet tasteful wedding vision stemmed around her reception site, the Adler Planetarium in Chicago. Every detail was so well thought out and really let the couples personalities shine. Guests first saw their ideas come to life when they received the most beautiful wedding invitation created by Cheree Berry Paper. 

Emily and Marek were married at Fourth Presbyterian Church. Except for the old Water Tower, Fourth Presbyterian Church is the oldest building on Michigan Avenue north of the Chicago River and it is absolutely stunning. As the couple departed the church, hand-in-hand for the first time as husband and wife, guests gathered to blow bubbles for their send-off. 

Even though it was a humid evening, guests wanted to be outside on the Adler Planetarium's terrace soaking up the Chicago skyline. The very talented spanish guitarist, David Chiriboga, played his guitar as guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d'oeuvres provided by Food for Thought. 

And no detail was left behind at this wedding! Kehoe went above and beyond to make Emily and Marek's vision come to life. The room was stunning centered around the blue and purple color palette alternating designs on every other table. When the sun went down the beautiful strung lights lit up the room and brought out the lighting in the custom bar image created by Kehoe's graphic design team. 
After a delicious four-course dinner, Skyline packed the dance floor and guests danced the night away. When the song "Firework" by Katy Perry played, guests were directed back out on the terrace to enjoy the fireworks over the lake. And to cap it all off, if anyone was still hungry, they could grab a bite from the Tamale Spaceship food truck. Thank you Kristin Kasperek from iKlikphoto for capturing this night to remember! We could not have done it all without this very talented team of vendors!

Congratulations Emily & Marek, I am so happy your stars have aligned!
