Loews O’Hare Love Affair

After meeting in 2006 at a friend’s birthday party, Jake and Savannah began a relationship that would change their lives forever. “We’ve been together for ten years, and our love has never depreciated,” they told us. “No matter what life threw at us, it only grew stronger.” The couple got engaged at Montrose Beach, and knew that they wanted to get married in Chicago. In August, the couple won the Loews O’Hare Love Affair wedding giveaway and were able to make all their Windy City wedding wishes come true.

Loews O’Hare and a team of Chicago’s best wedding vendors worked together to create the James Bond themed wedding that Jake and Savannah were dreaming of. Alluring purple lighting, flickering candles, and towering floral centerpieces perfectly captured the elegance and intrigue of 007, all the while remaining chic and modern. “Yanni Design Studio did an absolutely spectacular job with the decor,” Savannah gushed. “The food was to die for, our kissing cats cake topper was adorable – we didn’t want the night to end. The music from Conquest Entertainment was so good that Jake and I actually didn’t even leave the dance floor until they were halfway done tearing things down!”

One of the couple’s favorite memories from their Big Day was when their wedding consultant, Vasso Power, grabbed them after the ceremony and took them to a private room with hors d’oeuvres and champagne. “It was great to just bask in the moment,” they said. While their incredible wedding might have come and gone in the blink of an eye, the couple still has another part of the giveaway to look forward to: their “mini-moon” at Loews Coronado Bay Hotel in sunny California.
