Catherine + Mike | The Peninsula Chicago

The day was definitely a reflection of us as a couple — and also a celebration of our family and friends coming together. Our favorite moments were spending time with our bridal party beforehand, seeing each other for the first time and the reception overall.

Everything from the music to the photos we now have to remember our special day were perfect. The team was great to work with and made everything so easy and fun. When you are caught up in all of the details of planing the “big day”, it’s nice to work with a team that truly wants everything to be exactly how you want it, and cares just as much as you do about the details and thought that is put into everything.

Mike said if he could have one thing he would want it to be an ice cream cake. Since it would be a puddle on the floor by the time we cut it, I told him it was the one thing I couldn’t give him. During our speech, I surprised him and our guests with a huge ice cream bar.
