Wedding Date on Nov 11, 2017

Alexandria & David: A Classic, Timeless Chicago Wedding – With a Breathtaking View! “Soul Mates. Two little words, one big concept. A belief that someone, somewhere is holding the key to your heart. And that is truly what I think both of you have for each other.” This lovely toast at their wedding sums up the spirit of how Alexandria and David worked together to plan and create their sleek and gorgeous Chicago celebration. Alexandria and David love their Windy City home – and wanted to make sure they created an amazing, memorable wedding experience for their family and friends. As they put it, “We wanted to put together a fun experience that our guests can gush about for the rest of our lives.” “Our vision? We wanted a wedding experience and look that was timeless – so that 20 years from now it still works for us. A look and feel that was classic, timeless, and clean.” These soul mates were on the same creative page. Their chosen color palette began with black and white. “You can never go wrong with black and white. When we used the words classic, modern and elegant to describe our vision of the day – black, white, silver, and grey grew naturally out of that concept.” The smooth, sweeping and elegant lines of Alexandria’s snow-white gown, with its silvery circlet belt at the waist, stood out in gorgeous contrast to the simple, clean lines of her bridesmaids’ black sheaths and the modern cut of the tuxes that David and his groomsmen sported. And while Alexandria’s bouquet was the purest of ivory, the barest whisper of blush hid in the floral arrangements at their LondonHouse Chicago Ballroom reception. “We looked at many venues, but we were sold on LondonHouse as the perfect place for our reception. After seeing those windows, that view of the Chicago River and the Chicago skyline, we knew it was exactly the aesthetic and feel we were looking for.” Another reason for their venue choice? The food of course! The LondonHouse menu was perfect for them both. And the next big choice: the music! “We picked a DJ that would keep our friends and family on the dance floor all night long.” Alexandria’s favorite moments included her First Dance with David. “My sister picked out our song – “Say You Won’t Let Go,” by James Arthur. And my dance with my Dad – he picked a favorite of Mom’s and mine, “I Hope You Dance,” by Lee Ann Womack. I loved all the dancing. The music still brings tears to my eyes.” And for David? “It was seeing all the pieces come together – it was a real good feeling. But most of all, it was seeing how much Alex was enjoying her day – it made me so happy.” It was the kind of wedding that makes you wish you were invited: an urban Valentine to two Chicago soul mates.
