Kelli is full of life- vivacious, energetic, and completely unique. John compliments her dynamic personality perfectly. While this couple is still basking in the newlywed glow (their wedding was in April), we’re enjoying a look back at their wedding day!
Kelli and her girls laughed the morning away. Pillow fights would soon lead to pillow talk, but for the morning it was all about the ladies! We love to see large groups of girlfriends soaking in the momentous occasion of wedding day. It’s such a special time for the group.
April is a fabulous month to get married in Chicago- and Kelli & John were blessed with perfect weather! After an adorable first look, the couple ventured outside. The blue sky and Spring temps provided a beautiful backdrop for their portraits. And we love the architectural details surrounding the Pazzos at 311- they’re quintessential Chicago!
For their ceremony, they incorporated both the lighting of the unity candle and the jumping of the broom traditions.
For the reception, tables were adorned with lush pink centerpieces and each place setting was designed by a beautiful glass and gold chargers. And a unique favor? A Miller High Life! This is a nod to Kelli’s job with MillerCoors and the couple’s favorite beverage (they don’t do “champs”, they do the “champagne of beer!”)- which many of their guests were well aware of.
