Claire & Jeff : Wedding

Claire & Jeff’s wedding last Saturday was a classy brunch affair at the Warwick Melrose Hotel and Oak Lawn United Methodist Church. Gold, Gray, and white was the palette of the day… a gorgeous winter color scheme that flowed beautifully through their historic venues. Claire’s son Caleb played a huge part in their special day, and in fact, kept calling it, “Our Wedding”. That warmed our hearts, because our son Jack did the same thing when we got married! 🙂

We arrived in Claire’s bridal suite bright & early on Saturday morning, but everyone was buzzing with happy energy… they must have had coffee delivery. 🙂

Caleb was all smiles after his chocolate milk & donuts… I gotta say, I was jealous! 🙂

A crazy cold wind blew in Saturday afternoon, so I was glad Claire & Jeff’s First Sight was early enough to miss the blustery weather. Such a lovely emotional moment for the Bride & Groom…

We always love working with DiFiori, and this stunning winter bouquet didn’t disappoint. Katie did a fantastic job on all the florals for this event!

Mr. & Mrs. Thompson walked back the aisle to a joyful tune from “Charlie Brown Christmas”. Best recessional EVER!

Claire surprised her new husband with the song for the Private Last Dance… another very emotional moment that we know they’ll cherish always.
