Our Chicago partner, Hope Weis of Hope Weis Consulting, shared this wonderful wedding with us to brighten our Monday.

The bride and groom, Stephanie & Marco, met through a mutual friend in New York. She was attending business school with Marco. The couple dated in New York and eventually business took them to London. The wedding was planned from "across the pond" with Stephanie's parents in Chicago. Visits to Chicago were action packed, trying to make the most of the couples time in Chicago during the planning phase.

"We really wanted the evening to feel more like a dinner party with our close friends and family than a wedding reception. We tried to stay true to that idea throughout planning and were so happy with how everything turned out. It was a wonderful day full of amazing memories."
