Stephanee + Matt // Trump Hotel Chicago


Trump Chicago Wedding Heffernan Morgan Designs Video
Stephanee and Matt met at a Halloween party. Matt was wearing a hot dog costume and Stephanee was dressed as a Gossip Girl. Pretty romantic, right? A few weeks later, they exchanged numbers and went out on a date and their relationship continued to grow. Several years later, Matt proposed to Stephanee during an unforgettable trip to Paris, France. It was no surprise that one of Matt’s three cards (yes, three!) to Stephanee on the day of their wedding had the Eiffel Tower on its cover.

Stephanee and Matt really spent a lot of time on the details, including decor by Heffernan Morgan. One of my favorite design elements was the 15 chandeliers hanging from the ceremony canopy. Guests danced the night away to music by the The Gold Coast All Stars band in Trump’s main ballroom and also were treated to an after party in a completely separate room with tunes spun by DJ Akib. A HUGE “Thank You” to Peter Wynn Thompson for introducing us to this awesome couple! Check out his awesome pics of this wedding by clicking here!

Kate + Matt // St. James Chapel + Chicago Union Station


There are many parts about this wedding that might take your breath away. For starters, Kate, her family, and her bridal party prepared for the big day on the 25th floor of the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago. Their room overlooked the Chicago River and the beautiful view of Chicago’s skyline. After Kate was ready, a beautiful Rolls Royce Silver Wraith seDanca from Elegant Motoring was waiting with a chauffeur, holding open the door for Kate and her father. Matt choked back some tears while Kate was led down the aisle at St. James Chapel in Chicago. The wedding party continued in a beautiful landscape of colors designed by Kehoe Designs at Chicago Union Station – The Great Hall. There’s something about the wedding couple walking down that grande staircase that is a great visual for us. Guests danced the night away with a variety of music from Rendezvous Music and ate at one of the most unique dessert bars (liquid nitrogen ice cream) I’ve ever seen from Nitro Dessert Station. All of this was coordinated by the amazing Five Grain Events team. This was the first time I worked with Peter Wynn Thompson and enjoyed every minute of this day working with him. Kate and Matt, I hope you enjoy this trailer as a wonderful memory of your beautiful day.
