It was our first wedding of 2013 this past Saturday, January 5th!! Here is our story of Marilia and Daniel's wedding.
Our first meeting was over the phone back in August, since Marilia and Daniel were planning their wedding from Iowa, we had an initial phone consult and met a couple months later. Marilia and Daniel are from Latin America, and all of the guests that they were inviting were out of the country and out of state.
They already had St. Mary of the Angels Church booked, http://www.sma-church.org/ Although the church is going through some renovations inside and out, the church is absolutely stunning, and we didn't let the construction ruin the ceremony!
The reception venue was also booked at the lovely Penninsula Hotel http://www.peninsula.com/Chicago/en/default.aspx Since the wedding was in January this saved the couple a lot of money.( Reminder to couples that off season weddings will save you a lot of money!!)
Marilia and Daniel needed help with booking the rest of the vendors, so the search was on.
At the end these wonderful vendors were booked for the big day!
Ceremony music: This was actually a friend of Marilia's brothers' who used to play with Michael Daly.
Hair and Make-up: the lovely Carla and Carrie from http://appease2you.com/
One of my favorite parts of this wedding was the small intimate guest list of 45, and the smaller tables used for the room that fit 5 people at each table. Also, the unique Bem-Casados cookies used as favors which was a Latin American wedding tradition.
Congratulations to Marilia and Daniel again and thanks for letting us be a part of your special day!!
