Julia & Patrick: Holiday Romance

With snow still on the ground, I can't help but reminisce about our winter weddings. Julia and Patrick embraced the season, creating an ambiance of holiday magic and romance. The personal touches throughout the day showcased such an endearing love of family and warmth to counter the cold day. Check out the gorgeous photos by Colin Lyons Photography:

Ah technology....

When traveling around Chicago in winter, one must prepared with proper shoes!

In tribute to her parents, Julia's bouquet was wrapped with a piece of her mother's wedding dress and her father's dog tag

Love this unique vantage point of the Chicago skyline!

In true fairy-tale fashion, a horse and carriage whisked the bride and groom away after the ceremony.

The bride and groom's East Side/West Side chair signs added a little whimsy to the elegance of the Mid-America Club.

A family heirloom cake topper made the wedding cake extra special.

The Head Table

A classic table setting with candle favors for the guests, basking the room in a candlelit glow.

Lush greenery made the room seasonal yet romantic.

Foam glow sticks made magic happen on the dance floor!

A glowing sendoff for the Bride and Groom.

Congratulations to Julia and Patrick!
