This wedding. As I’m writing this, I’m still feeling the magic that was in the air as Amanda and Casey said I do in front of their closest family and friends during their intimate Publishing House Chicago wedding.
Casey and Amanda were among so many couples this year that had their plans changed from a big old shin dig at The W Hotel, to, as Amanda put it, “two gals, a fireplace, some loved ones, and dranks” at Publishing House Chicago. Their Publishing House Chicago wedding would be followed by a massive slumber party? HECK YES.
They originally had their hearts set on Publishing House, but needed space for a larger guest list. When #covid changed their plans, they came back full circle where their hearts were all along. Funny how life works out that way – Amanda told me. These two ladies, full of spirit, joy and so much happiness, threw one hell of a party, and I was ecstatic that my name and +1 (my camera!) made the guest list
Casey was absolutely radiating in her Made with Love gown from Bella Bleu Bridal. Amanda was beaming, a smile never left her face. The rooms were adorned with candles everywhere you looked and stunning greens from the insanely talented Anjelica from Inflorescence 312. A live piano player – S. Joel Norman – serenaded us with friendly melodies that complimented the laughter in the room. Individual charcuterie boards and champagne from Big Delicious Planet filled up everyone’s bellies. Amanda & Casey said I do just as the sun set.⠀
Apart from the endless tiny details that made this such a special day, was the over-arching happiness, support, and love that you could feel amongst these ladies and their closest friends and family. ⠀
Amanda & Casey – you are exuberant. You are charming. You are two of the most wonderful people I’ve ever met and my heart was so full getting to be a part of your wedding day. Congratulations with all of my heart.⠀
