Hotel Intercontinental Chicago Wedding

Jamison + Jamie’s wedding day was filled with an abundance of love and romance. With an amazing couple, beautiful locations and great weather, it was truly a magical day. Jamie looked truly stunning in her gown and wedding jewelry from The Left Bank.
Here's their brief story;

Jamie had visions for a classic Chicago big city wedding.  The wedding ceremony took place at , St. James Chapel which is a  one of Chicago’s prettiest historic chapels and recently restored. The French gothic style church and Caen stone chapel was inspired by San Chapelle in Paris France. The intimate chapel setting,  colorful stained glass windows, and stone sanctuary, painted a picturesque fairytale like location for their exchanging of vows.

When asking about their day, Jamie + Jamison say, “There were many favorite memories we will never forget from our day, but two specific memories stand out more than others. One memory we remember vividly was the first moment we saw on another for the first time, as Jamie was walking down the aisle with her father. For an entire year, we kept it a secret of how the other would look on the day of. Jamison did not share with Jamie what he was planning on wearing ( tuxedos, bow ties, etc. ) and Jamie kept the same secret not revealing with Jamison her bridal gown and all the bride’s accessories that went along with it. We both remember how handsome and beautiful each other looked at first sight.”

Out of 50+ reception venues they toured all while living in Indianapolis, Jamie said they were sold on The InterContinental Hotel which fit their vision perfectly with it's historic gilded grand ballroom and the striking architectural elements of the building.

As Jamie had dreamed, her and Jamison’s celebration unfolded as a series of unforgettable events. The evening even included one additional surprise for guests, Jamie’s personally choreographed a surprise dad and daughter dance, turning into a huge flash mob dance."A second favorite  memory was when we performed a flash mob dance during the reception with our parents and entire bridal party. We had practiced this dance over and over for weeks, and it was so much fun to finally be able to surprise everyone with our moves to Black Eyed Peas’ “Dirty Bit”. Our parents and bridal party performed amazing! The excitement really set the tone for the rest of the night and it turned out to be an unforgettable time for all of our guests.”
What an incredible celebration! Congrats to you both!
