I am so fortunate to have been a part of Chrissy and Cory’s beautiful wedding weekend. We kicked off the celebration in Chicago with a rehearsal dinner at Fred’s at Barney’s. It was a perfect evening with great food, touching speeches from family and friends, and loads of personal touches.
When the wedding day arrived, the weather couldn’t have been better. Chrissy got ready for the big day with her family and friends at Glenview Country Club, and she was glowing with happiness and excitement all morning!
One of the many highlights from the wedding day was Chrissy’s first look with her father. It happened at the family’s home, and it was the sweetest moment! Chrissy’s stepmom also surprised her with a C&C-shaped wreath at the front of the house to greet guests as they arrived.
Chrissy & Cory had a beautiful ceremony and not only did they become officially joined together, but their new family did as well.
After the ceremony, the doors to their home were open, and it was time to celebrate! The family’s backyard in Wilmette, Illinois was transformed to create the perfect setting for their reception. A beautiful clear-top tent and elegant lighting set the tone for a truly special outdoor event.
Guests made their way to the private residence where they were greeted with passed rose as they entered the home.
Chrissy & Cory envisioned the tent to feel elegant and natural. We incorporated rustic elements like farm tables, lots of greenery and birch, and beautiful white floral. When it came to the food, Chrissy & Cory wanted an organic, farm-to-table style menu, and Entertaining Company provided that to perfection!
The menu included beef tenderloin with summer corn and tomato salad, small plates of smoked chicken with charred corn flan, and a raw bar station shrimp and lobster rolls to fit the summer season.
It was a beautiful wedding weekend that was filled with so much love! We wish Chrissy & Cory many more years of love & happiness!
