Get ready for Brianne and Thomas’s love story, straight from high school and still going strong! Their Galleria Marchetti bash in Chicago was a total blast, and trust me, you’ll be hit with all the good vibes!
Brianne spills it – their sweet story started in high school with her making the first move! Fast forward, and you’ll catch these two on romantic park strolls or kicking back at a killer happy hour.
Now, let’s talk wedding day magic! They got ready separately with their friends. Brianne looked every part the stunning bride in a strapless satin gown with a full skirt. She added a super long train and sheer gloves to complete her look. The whole ensemble was timeless, and she could not have been more gorgeous. Thomas, our dashing groom, kept it classic and elegant in a black tuxedo with a black bow tie.
Their love story continued with a traditional ceremony in a church, a heartfelt moment that set the stage for the day’s festivities. Before heading to the reception, we stopped for portraits at the Rookery Building. This is such an elegant location, and the grand staircase is perfect for portraits with the couple and their wedding party. It wouldn’t be a Chicago wedding if we didn’t hit some of the most popular spots in the city for photos, so we made sure to grab some before heading to the party.
Now, brace yourselves for the grandeur of their reception at Galleria Marchetti! The space was transformed into a vision of bright whites, adorned with florals that added a touch of romance and warm candles casting a soft glow. A live musician set the perfect vibe. After a grand entrance, toasts, and a delicious dinner, it was time for the newlyweds and their guests to dance the rest of the night away.
