It was purple and it was fun. Jennifer and Loren’s Holiday Inn Mart Plaza wedding was a celebration MDM Entertainment was happy to be a part of. The view of the city was almost as spectacular as the Bride and Groom dancing under the purple lights.

“The Perfect Mix of Class and Comfort.”

Jennifer and Loren described their Holiday Inn Mart Plaza Wedding as classy yet comfortable. Located right next to Merchandise Mart, this awesome Chicago wedding venue gives you spectacular views but keeps you away from the hustle and bustle.

“Northwestern University was inspiration for the theme, my husband went to grad school there. He loved his time there and the first time I mentioned purple as a wedding option, he was sold,” said Jennifer.

The Holiday Inn Mart Plaza’s Wolf Point Ballroom was washed in purple up lighting with each pillar between the huge bay windows glowing in purple. Jennifer and Loren also had their names in lights with a personalized gobo. The Gobo shined on the dance floor as the Bride and Groom and all of their guests danced around it.

“The gobo was awesome. It added just that extra touch of personal detail to make the space ours,” said Jennifer.

There were plenty of details to notice, like Jennifer and Loren’s gorgeous centerpieces. Blue Daisy Floral & Design created blue and purple bouquets that sat on tall clear cylinders. The purple and blue flowers really stood out in the purple lighting and looked great with the view of the city behind them.

The Memories

 “Our favorite memory is hard to pick, there are so many! I would have to say my first reveal to Loren would have to be my favorite. That was one of those moments you hold onto as long as you can because its priceless. You breathe it in and hold on as long as you can because as Loren and I always tell each other, “don’t miss the moment”…..although I will say, seeing my dad the first time after I had my dress on was a pretty close second,” said Jennifer.

The couples musical tastes were great and diverse. Jazz was played during cocktail hour and everything from classic Beatles music to today’s top 40 was played at the reception. Wedding DJ Mike D. had the party going all night and, as requested by the Bride and Groom, ended the night with “Take Me Home Tonight” by Eddie Money.
