Under the Christmas tree at the Drake Hotel in Chicago, Marc proposed to Karen. How magical!
This is why they chose the Drake to have their wedding celebration. Karen looked gorgeous on her wedding day. She wore a beautiful dress by David Tutera for Mon Cheri and shoes by Badgley Mischka. Before the ceremony, Karen and Marc had a special private moment – first look and following a photo session at Union Station. The Gold Coast Room was beautifully decorated with Oliver Dogwood Floral Co. The bride and groom and all their guests had a wonderful time dancing to one of our favorite wedding bands – The Chicago Catz. Even with a few small obstacles, like closed streets for a Lighting Parade on the Magnificent Mile, a snow storm, a fire at the John Hancock, nothing could keep Marc and Karen from having a picture perfect day.
