I had so much fun getting to know Melissa & Ryan this past year. They have been together for over 10 years and I was able to notice their strong relationship and foundation right away. It was very important that the wedding day portrayed their personalities and was an evening enjoyed by all – and that’s exactly what it was!
Melissa & Ryan got married on a beautiful spring day in May. After getting ready in a gorgeous suite at the Ritz Carlton Chicago, the bridal party made their way across Michigan Avenue to the Fourth Presbyterian Church where the ceremony was held. It was a beautiful ceremony from start to finish with personal touches along the way and a bagpiper recessional.
After the ceremony, the bridal party departed for photos around the city and the guests made their way over to the Ritz Carlton Chicago for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. The ballroom looked stunning with ivory linens, plenty of candle light, white, peach and blush floral, and accents of Tiffany blue (Melissa’s favorite color).
One of my favorite moments, and a moment I always look forward to on a wedding day, was revealing the ballroom to Melissa. Melissa cried with tears of joy and happiness!
It was such a beautiful evening full of so much love for Melissa and Ryan. We wish them many many years of love and happiness!
