Many couples could only hope for the type of day Corrie and Eric had for their wedding day in April. One of those unseasonably warm, sunny days that brings the city to life and gives everyone hope that summer really is around the corner. And what better way to enjoy a beautiful day like that, but to celebrate your wedding day in the heart of Lincoln Park?
The day began at the unique Hotel Lincoln, with breathtaking views of Lincoln Park and The Lake. Corrie and her ladies enjoyed breakfast and refreshments, while having hair and makeup done by the amazing Kristina Marie and Angelica with Nika Vaughan Bridal Artists.
Slack Photography arrived that morning as the ladies were finishing up their beautification and just before Corrie put on her blush-colored gown with help from her mom and maid of honor. Once Vale of Enna arrived with the luscious bouquets and boutonnieres, it was time to head out for Corrie and Eric’s first look.
The talented Thomas Slack scoped out the hotel and surrounding area that morning and found the perfect backdrop for Corrie and Eric’s emotional first look.
After the first look, Corrie, Eric, and their wedding party departed Hotel Lincoln for some fun photos around Lincoln Park.
Thomas then snuck Corrie and Eric away for some quick photos downtown and on The Lake.
Meanwhile, Vale of Enna transformed the Great Hall of Café Brauer into a beautifully intimate space for Corrie and Eric’s touching wedding ceremony, complete with their personally written vows and officiated by a cousin of Eric’s.
Once the ceremony concluded, guests moved to the North Loggia for cocktails and appetizers from Tigerlily Events, while also getting the fun started in Shutterbooth’s Photo Booth. Shortly thereafter, guests returned to the Great Hall for dinner, once again being taken aback by the beauty of Café Brauer, details by Vale of Enna, and stunning cake by Amy Beck Cake Design.
After enjoying more deliciousness from Tigerlily Events, and hilariously touching speeches from Corrie and Eric’s family and friends, it was time to officially start the party with Toast and Jam DJs’ Kate and Rachel who kept the dance floor absolutely packed until the very last song of the evening.
Corrie and Eric, it was a true pleasure being a part of your wedding day and witnessing the love and happiness (and impressive dance skills!) of all your family and friends. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to work with you and we sincerely wish you a lifetime of love and happiness together!
