Despite being friends since college, it wasn’t until Claudia and Juan ran into each other years later at a mutual friend’s BBQ that their love story truly began. They knew they were a perfect pair because, as Claudia explains, “We always make each other smile and love spending time together.” After considering hosting their wedding in Mexico, Claudia and Juan decided on a local Chicago wedding so they could share their special day with all of their friends and family without worrying about traveling. The intimate venue was a perfect setting for their romantic reception—highlighted by a gorgeous flower wall and soft floral accents throughout. The couple made sure their guests were well taken care of with fun music, plenty of tequila, and a delectable donut wall. Claudia and Juan both particularly enjoyed their first dance and the garter toss. Claudia also enjoyed her dance with her Dad, whom she surprised at the end of their slow dance by playing a rock and roll song that they used to dance together to when she was a child. Claudia and Juan’s Big Day was the perfect reflection of their fun-loving natures and love for their family and friends.
