Over the years we have been part of many weddings at the Drake Hotel and it is absolutely one of our favorite spots in Chicago. Nothing says classic Chicago like a Drake Hotel wedding! The ballroom is magnificent, the food fantastic and the staff and service is out of this world!

Megan and Dan held their beautiful wedding at the Drake this January and MDM Entertainment was there to help them celebrate.

I always thought snow on your wedding day was a bad thing until I saw these amazing images from the talented wedding photographer Shane Welch Photography.  Just gorgeous!

It may have been cold and snowing outside but the Gold Coast Ballroom at The Drake was overflowing with love and warmth as Megan and Dan were introduced, cut their wedding cake and took the dance floor for the first time as husband and wife.

Then, it was time for the classic Drake Hotel wedding champagne toast!

I love this next picture! Not only because of the beautiful bride and handsome groom but because I think it really sums up MDM Entertainment’s philosophy on being a wedding DJ. The DJ should be in the background making sure everything is flowing smoothly and playing great music so the bride and groom can enjoy the spotlight!

After dinner Megan and Dan and all of their friends and family packed the dance floor and danced the night away to the extremely talented wedding DJ David O.

It seemed like the only time the guests weren’t on the dance floor is when they were enjoying the photo booth!

Props to Megan for going old school with a little 702 “Where My Girls At” for the bouquet toss!

And what would be more fitting for the last song of the night for this true Chicago wedding than “My Kind of Town” by Frank Sinatra!

Special thanks to Shane Welch photography for the beautiful images and the entire staff at The Drake Hotel for making sure everything went perfectly, as always.

Most importantly, thanks to Megan and Dan for letting us be a part of their incredible day!
