Nina & Robert: Vows On the High Seas

Maybe the Chicago River isn't the high seas, but saying "I Do" aboard a river boat, with views of famed architecture and the skyline, is definitely a fun and unique way to tie the knot. That classic Chicago ambiance carried into the evening with a downtown reception at the historic Rookery Building. Check out the stunning photos by Nakai Photography.

The Wedding Party

All Aboard...Ceremony Time!

Here Comes the Bride

Part of being a wedding planner is quick thinking to handle those unexpected moments that can come up from time to time. With just 30 minutes to set up on the boat, we were confronted with a surprise giant photo of Wrigley Field on the wall of our "altar" area. From the photo, you can see that it magically disappeared. What did we use to cover it up on the fly? 
Tell us what you think below. We'll reveal the answer on Facebook.

The Rookery

What better venue than a Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece for an architect groom?

History and architecture books served as decor for the guestbook table while paying tribute to this iconic venue.

The cocktail-style reception featured food stations and tables of varying sizes and seating arrangements for a casual flow.

Several different centerpiece looks created texture and visual interest in the room.
