Kathy and Michael met on a cruise ship in Florida and continued their relationship after Kathy moved to Chicago for graduate school. The pair knew they were perfect for each other because they were inseparable, enjoying every moment they spent together.

The happy couple planned a gorgeous Chicago wedding that honored their love for each other and their love for their families. Kathy and Michael showed their appreciation and respect for their parents by including them in special ways. Kathy asked both mothers to wear white so they would stand out as guests of honor and they had custom suits made for their dads. Kathy also paid homage to her Vietnamese heritage through family introductions and some of the delicious food served. They made sure everyone’s sweet tooth was satisfied with a wedding cake featuring a different flavor for each tier and a DIY candy table where guests could assemble customized bags of their favorite sweets.

The reception was decorated with a stunning floral design featuring roses, peonies, greenery and crepe de chine ribbons. The neutral color palette and florals created an incredibly chic, elegant vibe that wowed guests. Kathy and Michael enjoyed a romantic first dance, surrounded by elegant draping and sparkling crystal chandeliers. The pair both treasured their wedding day as a lasting memory of their families being together, celebrating their love and enjoying the gorgeous night.
