Chioma and Brian had a dream winter wedding in Chicago at The Kimpton Gray Hotel! The weather is not always on one’s side in Chicago but this couple could not have asked for a better winter day. Flakes were magically falling and the air was crisp and refreshing– making for fantastic photos and a perfect night to get dancing!
Chioma and Brian got ready in separate suites at The Kimpton Gray Hotel where they were surrounded by their dear friends. Snacks, drinks, and fun were had as they put on their best. The couple even wrote sweet notes to one another and had gifts delivered to each other. The Simply Elegant Team will tell you that there was not a dry eye in the room as they read their notes from one another.
After a romantic and flurry filled first look, the couple joined the wedding party for the ceremony. It was elegant, classic, and traditional yet filled with the stunning and vibrant colors of their choice!
Before arriving at The Kimpton Gray Hotel with the rest of the guests, the wedding party took a little detour in the limo for a pre-cocktail hour cocktail, fun music, and laughter!
Upon arrival, the couple greeted their loved ones and enjoyed a meal together before living it up on the dance floor together.
It was truly a joyous day for this Chicago couple!
From the intricacies of Chioma’s dress to her vibrant purple shoes to her lush floral to Brian’s cuff links…every detail of the day was carefully curated. Loved what you saw? Check out the vendors that made this amazing day possible!
