Gretchen and Dan tied the knot on a beautiful spring day in April. The special day began with a sweet & intimate first look between the bride and groom on the terrace of the Peninsula Hotel. The couple then exchanged vows in front of 250 of their closest friends and family at a beautiful ceremony at Holy Name Cathedral. After the ceremony, it was time to party! As guests arrived at the Chicago History Museum, they were greeted with delicious hors d’oeuvres including Mu Shoo Duck Crepes & Seafood Ceviche catered by Jewell Events. Guests sat at dining tables adorned with stunning green and ivory lush florals designed by ArtQuest Ltd. They dined on Lemon Rosemary Chicken & Herb Crusted Filet and nibbled on cannoli wedding cake provided by Il Giardino Del Dolce before hitting the dance floor. Fig Media spun Gretchen and Dan’s favorite tunes and kept guests entertained throughout the evening. Thanks to Dayna Schroeder Photography for capturing all of the beautiful moments of this amazing day!
