Alma was probably one of the calmest brides I have ever worked with.
Crossing Michigan Avenue for some photos.
The girls took pictures right across the street at Grant Park.
Each wore a black cocktail dress of their own choosing.
Alma was smiling all day!
The guys strike a pose in the famous Barbershop. The Blackstone is full of history!
Alma and David wrote their own vows. While touching, they also had a sense of humor. David pledged to support "your crazy marathon training schedule, your unhealthy addiction to TiVo, and your insistence on taking bites from anything I try to eat."
Cutting their cake airplane themed cake. Look for a shot of the topper tomorrow.
The bride and groom snuck out during the reception for a few city photos.
I generally try and stay out of photos as much as possible, but this picture makes me laugh as it is really a snapshot of working as a coordinator. I am carrying my emergency kit on my shoulder and my small bag which holds necessities like my cell phone and tip envelopes, while trying to navigate through the room to get the big cake knife away from the little kiddies - all with a smile on my face!
When Alma and David said they wanted their guests to have fun, they meant it. They hired a company to bring in four flat screen televisions and Wiis. Alma's niece is playing Guitar Hero - the guitar is almost bigger than she is!
The reception also included trivia about the bride and groom in a game show format.
Tomorrow I'll showcase some of their fun details!

A few months ago, I did a blog post about a Lill Event where Audey was going to have a trunk show. If I hadn't had a prior commitment, I would have fought the Armitage Street traffic to see those gorgeous frocks. Lucky for Chicago Brides, they are having another event. Unlucky for me, because it is the day that I'm hosting my first day of Spring Brunch.
