It took only one meeting with Laura, Mike, and Nancy (mother of the bride) to know that this was a couple that encompassed the meaning of true love in every sense. Laura, Mike (and Nancy) wanted the day to be as perfect as their love.
Wedding day morning began early at The Palmer House Hilton. The ladies gathered in Laura’s suite while the guys assembled in Mike’s. Jayme, Jennica, and Sophia from Ann LaCorte Hair and Makeup Design were well into hair and makeup by late morning and George Street Photo and Video was lucky enough to capture the beauty of the day.
The ladies helped Laura into her stunning gown that truly fit like a glove. As Nancy Krause Floral and Design arrived with flowers it seemed all the pieces were falling into place just perfectly. The bouquets were filled with antique hydrangea, white and desert sand roses, soft pink peonies and gray brunia. The flowers created the perfect contrast to the ladies’ navy blue gowns.
Before the ceremony, the ladies were able to slip away and take some photos around town. In true Chicago fashion they paid homage to the World Series Champion Chicago Cubs just six days after they had taken their new title.
The ceremony was held in the Honore Room of The Palmer House Hilton. The room’s breathtaking vaulted ceiling and chandeliers created a magnificent backdrop for Laura and Mike to say I do. The service was filled with personal touches, heartfelt vows, laughter, and tears of joy. It wasn’t long before they stomped the glass and were off as Mr. and Mrs. Michael Zimmerman! Mazel Tov!
Laura, Mike, and their families took photos around the Palmer House Hilton while final touches were being made in the Empire Room for the night’s festivities. The room had a certain glow to it that was similar to Laura and Mike’s. You could just feel the love from family and friends.
Laura and Mike kicked off the reception while dancing to “XO” by John Mayer. They cut their remarkable cake created by Cake Chicago, listened to heartfelt speeches which made everyone laugh and cry, and enjoyed an outstanding dinner of Filet Mignon crafted by Palmer House’s chefs. In no time at all, Toast and Jam DJs had all of the guests dancing away into the night.
As the night came to an end it was made certain that this day full of love would transpire into a lifetime of happiness. Laura and Mike, it was a pleasure working with you we wish you all the best!
