This week, we really wanted to highlight one of our past clients who is a courageous frontline worker! Claire is a nurse at Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, who met her now Husband Shane in college. They had their first date at Mastro’s in Las Vegas (how cool), and they have been together ever since!
Claire + Shane had their beautiful wedding on August 19, 2019 at the stunning Fourth Presbyterian Church, followed by the ultimate celebration at The Chicago History Museum! The bride’s vision was to have a very classic, romantic, & just simply elegant wedding, filled with greens and soft hues. Our planner Allison worked side by side with the couple, and their dream day came true – It truly was perfect start to finish!
We asked Allison what her favorite part of their day was, and she told us that it was “the part of the day between the Cocktail Hour and Dinner Reception. The weather was iffy all day, and rained sporadically. We had to make the call to have cocktails inside, but by the end of cocktail hour the weather cleared & the sky was so beautiful. So with that being said, we made the pivot decision to get everyone outside before transitioning to dinner reception to take one large group picture on the back steps of the History Museum. This was super important to Claire and Shane, and we are so happy we were able to make this happen for them.” It was such a magnificent day and we cannot be more thankful to be a part of it!
Thank you to all of the frontline workers like Claire who sacrifice so much every day to make sure we are all safe + healthy! We cannot be more thankful for you all! God Bless! xoxo
