What a wonderful experience we had planning the wedding of Karin and Mike held at Trump International Hotel Tower in Chicago.

A second marriage for both that was very Elegant, Stunning and Fun.

The couple wanted to make sure their wedding was all about the food, drink and their guests having fun at their wedding/party.

The festive began with a cocktail hour for Mike and 125 of the couple’s closes friends, family and the couple’s children.  There were prime selections of wines and champagnes that was butler served as well as a great selection of appetizers.

The ceremony began when the flower girl entered the cocktail foyer dropping light pink and ivory rose petals making an isle for the bride.  Karin was escorted by her son.  Karin was wearing a Nicole Miller Silk Chiffon Gown, Jimmy Choo silver shoes and caring a hang tied beautiful bouquet of sand, ivory and light pink roses.

The second cocktail hour began when the Honorable Judge William Taylor announced that Mr. and Mrs. Mike and Karin would like to make a toast to all of their guests.  Glasses of wine were passed to all the guests and the bar reopened.





















The reception/party was held in the unforgettable Grand ballroom with a spectacular view of Chicago lakefront and Navy Pier.

The dance floor was the focal point of the room.  A four post apparatus, with spot lights and up lights illuminating the dance floor. Beautiful ivory satin draping material hung from each post and gorgeous groupings of hydrangea, cymbidium orchids, and sand, white and pink roses hung gracefully from the ceiling of the dance floor apparatus.

There were seven stations of food including two carving stations and two open bars.

The DJ Chris played just the right music that was selected by Karin and Mike that made sure their guests danced all night.

The evening was topped off with fireworks and the serving of hot dogs, hamburger sliders and French fries.

What a wonderful ending to a perfect event.
