Diana and Kris contacted me last summer regarding their wedding plans. I used to work with Diana at a doctors office, and of course I said yes when she asked me to help. Diana and Kris met on www.match.com (yes it does work!!!) This is actually my 3rd couple that has met on that has met on this dating website, so again yes it does work!!! :)
Diana is Jewish and Russian, and Kris is Christian, so they had an interfaith wedding, which is always exciting and unique combining to faiths together.
Their ceremony and reception was held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel O'Hare, http://www.crowneplazaohare.com/ In the O'hare 1 and 2 Ballrooms.
Diana and Kris had planned on doing a first look photo before their ceremony to take most of the pictures before, so they can enjoy their time with their guests at cocktail hour. Although there was a downpour on that day at time of pictures, most pictures were done inside the hotel. The photographer was Kathie from Dazzle Me Photography, http://www.dazzlemephotos.com/
Ballroom 1 was an intimate setting with lights dimmed for the ceremony. Flowers, and aisle decor was provided from Lana's Flowers located in Morton Grove, (no website). Lana and her assistandt did an amazing job and used lit pillars down the aisle which looked amazing, also using vases with led lights and crystals to hold all the white calla lillies. As of yet this is my favorite ceremony decor yet! The Chuppah was made by the Bride's talented father Leo! It was beautiful.
The main ballroom was a nice black and white color theme, again with calla lillies that were used for ceremony (this is a great budget saver, use flowers that were used for ceremony for your reception centerpieces) Uplights were provided by the DJ, Jacob from Dependable Wedding DJ's, http://www.dependableweddingdjs.com/ and made the room look fabulous.
This was a great wedding, and I was honored to be a part of Diana and Kris's day. Congratulations again!
