Saturday I had the pleasure of coordinating for Claire+Chris, a fantastic couple from Washington, DC who tied the knot in New Buffalo! The ceremony took place at St. Mary of the Lake, and the reception was held at the beautiful Barker Hall in Michigan City, Indiana. They took from Barker Hall’s 30’s style, and wove it into a beautiful wedding with charm and personality.

I missed the first dance as I was running some errands for the bride, but Leda of LVL Photography captured it beautifully—aren’t they stunning!? They opted for live music, and Me and the Boys kept the night going with big band hits! I can’t say enough good things about the band–all 8 pieces! They were all super nice, and they did an absolutely amazing job–such a unique touch!
The amazing floral arrangements were provided by Flowers with Jazz (how appropriate) and they did an absolutely amazing job–the bride incorporated Bells of Ireland into almost all of the arrangements, as well as peacock feathers.

The dinner selection was out of this world, and Matt Kis of Great Lakes Catering did a phenomenal job with the presentation. Check out their “window display” of fruit–I love it! The menu consisted of chicken breast with an apricot honey mustard glaze, roasted prime rib, glazed salmon, an amazing salad bar, and green beans and potatoes that were delish. Not to mention Matt was so easy to work with, and bent over backwards all night to help us out!

The lovely Leda and Sasha of LVL Photography were on hand to capture all of the beautiful moments at this truly personal and fun celebration. They were a pleasure to work with, and you can check out more great pics at Leda’s blog! Thanks Claire+Chris, for letting me share in your special day, and hope you enjoy your honeymoon in Hawaii!
