from the bride…

Joe and I met on a Chicago beach volleyball team through mutual friends. The joke is that I was so terrible at volleyball that I ruined his chances for a championship season! He was able to see past my lack of athletic abilities and after several months of friendship, on St. Patrick’s Day 2010, he cornered me and told me, “I can make you happy!”. And he did! He proposed beneath a grove of oak trees on my family farm in southwest Louisiana on June, 15th 2013.After we were engaged, Joe insisted that February was the right month for our wedding. His parents had been married in February over 40 years ago! We knew that we wanted to get married in our Church, St. Clement, where we are parishioners and where I had been confirmed with Joe serving as my Catholic sponsor. With that decided, we began looking for an elegant Chicago hotel to host our many out of town guests and our evening reception. The historical Blackstone hotel was my little girl “fairy tale wedding” dream come true! With it’s crystal chandeliers, ornate plaster work, soft palette of white, grey and accents of gold, the ballroom served as perfect inspiration for all of my choices from there. With no wedding planner or day of coordinator, I selected vendors based off of referrals and professionalism. I knew that my vendors would ensure that my day ran smoothly! And it did…even Chicago weather participated, giving us a beautiful sunshine all day!
