August 28th, 2010 is a day that I will never forget - my sister's picturesque wedding. My Mom and sister planned a fairytale wedding, and surprisingly, they were able to keep most of it a secret from everyone, including me! They could not have done any of it without their extraordinary wedding planner, Reva Nathan.
Normally, the pictures I post won't be this fantastic, but I was able to get these off of INSIDE Weddings where the wedding was featured in the Spring 2010 issue photographed by KingenSmith.
|The wedding took place at the Four Seasons Chicago.|
|My beautiful family (only picture from my camera).|
|The bridesmaid dresses looked fantastic on everyone, they were just so flattering!|
They got married in the round, which was very intimate setting (even with close to 400 guests).
|Best part of the ceremony: Groom walked in to "Eye of the Tiger" (arms up in the air of course).|
|The crystals, the flowers, the lighting everything was just perfect!|
|Just after midnight the room drastically changed colors and servers marched out with over sized sundaes for each guest (you could opt to share with the person next to you).|
|My sister and her husband fell in love in Miami so it only seemed right to heat things up after dessert by turning the room into a Salsa Club. Guest were wowed with a performance given by professional salsa dancers followed by a serenade to the bride by Ken Arlen of the Ken Arlen Orchestra.|
|They passed out mini chocolate cigars, Cuban espresso drinks, and mojitos.|
The night was magical and I know my sister and brother-in-law can never thank my parents enough for giving them their dream wedding. Hopefully, they will be satisfied with the grandson they will be bringing into this world in February.
I hope you enjoyed looking back at my sisters wedding with me! I am off to visit her and my nephew to be in Michigan this afternoon (if the weather in Chicago permits). I just want to thank everyone for a wonderful first week in the blogging world. I promise to be back next week with more insight into what it takes to be a "Professional Bridesmaid!"
