If the recipe for romance is white lace and flowers, then there was no shortage of romance at Jamie and Mike’s wedding at the Westin Lombard Hotel. Earthy colors, white roses dotted with fall florals, beaded lace, bridesmaids all in pale pink – how could this Chicago area wedding get any more romantic? Their wedding ceremony took place in her childhood church, filled with the dreamiest aerial lighting above the altar. It was a fall wedding, though the actual temperature was 100 degrees, but you wouldn’t know it because the bride and groom looked so calm, cool and collected. (You might remember seeing their 100 degree engagement session, which they also rocked like champs, blogged here.) Jamie and Mike’s big day included sentimental details like a childhood diary, the bride’s pink kickboxing gloves, portraits inside Chicago’s famed Harry Caray’s, and Filipino wedding traditions like having sponsors to light the wedding candles, handle the veils, and place the cord. And when in doubt, just add a little sparkle; you won’t regret it. I’m in love, and I know you will be, too.
