A crisp fall day made the perfect setting for this amazing couple! Mandy and Bryan are such a fun and laid-back couple that planning this special day was a joy on all accounts. I was so happy to be a part of the celebration and had a blast from beginning to end.
Mandy got ready at ease at her family's home in Winnetka while the groomsmen hung back in the city before departing for Saints Faith, Hope and Charity. Working with the season, Edwards Floral came up with the most creative and beautful arrangements consisting of rich fall roses, pomegranates, kale and artichokes. The deep colors complimented the bridesmaids charcoal gray dresses and elegance of the church.
The newlyweds were serenaded by bagpipes as they walked down the aisle and entered their getaway vintage Rolls-Royce car. It was to no surprise that this Michigan alum chose the Michigan Room to host her wedding reception at the University Club of Chicago. The beauty of the room took guests breaths away as they were seated for dinner. And the fun was just beginning as Mandy's father did not leave a dry eye in the room from his witty yet thoughtful and touching toast to the bride and groom.
Guests danced the night away to Incognito while Smiling Toad Wedding Films and Tao of Lenswork Studio captured the love and happiness of this amazing couple, family and friends. Congratulations to this couple, Mandy and Bryan, you are a perfect match for each other!
