Knowing Early On
After meeting through an online dating site, Jaime and Will just knew this was it. They shared so many interests including a love for food, traveling, sports (loyal Cubs fans) and family values. By their second date, they were a perfect match for one another.
Ready to Party
Jaime and Will wanted their wedding reception to feel like a big party, with a focus on the band, food and bar. They featured two specialty cocktails named after the bride and groom – a pear martini with grenadine and a spicy Old Fashioned with habanero bitters – which were a big hit with guests. The upbeat band had guests kicking up their heels on the dance floor the entire night.
The Lone Star State
In honor of Will’s Texas roots, the couple incorporated a “Texas chic” theme throughout their reception. They used antlers, cacti and plenty of candles interspersed with a navy, pink and metallic color scheme to keep things both western and elegant.
Jaime and Will enjoyed taking photos around the financial district and the Wells Street Bridge after their first look. One of their favorite moments of the day was including their sweet pit bull Macey in the photoshoot for some adorable family wedding portraits.
