Jamie & Elaine's Intercontinental O'hare Wedding

Elaine & Jamie came to me last January and requested a summer wedding... so I'm excited to share the wedding we planned for them in about 5.5 months! They live out in the suburbs, so the Intercontinental O'Hare (which is now the Loew's Chicago O'Hare Hotel) was the perfect fit for the modern, elegant wedding they envisioned.

They kicked off the dinner with their First Dance. You may notice that Irene was wearing a deep red peony corsage on her wrist, and that was because she didn't want to bother toting around a bouquet... Smart!
