There are some people in this world, who are just so comfortable to be around. Theres an ease about them that not only speaks of their warm personality, but their grateful heart and fun spirit. Alicia and John are those things and so much more. They are two souls that were supposed to be together, and we are thankful they found each other. Their November wedding was exactly as you would dream a fall Chicago wedding at the Ivy Room would be. It was shiny, yet warm…candlelit and lush in the big city. There are oohs and ahhs from the bundled up passersby, and congratulations from kind hearted people shopping during the Holidays.
Alicia was stunning in her perfectly appointed dress from BHLDN Chicago. The dress only made more perfect by the jaw dropping Christian Louboutins. They were drool-worthy for sure!! John in Navy with an on trend pineapple tiled tie, matching socks and the groomsmen in grey and navy.
Did we mention the florals?? They were incredible….Full and lush with deep colors, they accented the navy Lulu’s bridesmaids gowns in just the right way.
The Venue: The Ivy Room Chicago
The Ivy Room Chicago has the incredible reputation it does because it never disappoints. The staff tended to every detail with a smile and professionalism that keeps them at the top of their class. The room was perfectly lit, the tables classic with a modern twist….old school glass Coke bottles for the toast. Chrissy and her Ivy Room staff, as well as Nicole and the ladies from LKevents, were accommodating, kind and a joy to work with. The If you have never been to the Ivy Room, add it to your list.
To the Longtin and Keusenkothen families: It was an honor to work with you all. Alicia and John gracious and kind and that is a testament to good parenting. We thank you for allowing us into your families on this most special day, and we hope you will treasure these pictures for years to come!
Alicia and John….you have the world at your fingertips and deserve all of the good things coming your way!! We are glad to know you and so thankful that you picked us!! Congratulations! Cheers to a happy, healthy new life as Mr. and Mrs!!
