Kellie and Ian’s Omni Chicago Hotel Wedding
Pretty in Pink
Kellie and Ian celebrated their love with a stunning Omni Chicago Hotel wedding. Knowing they wanted to give their out-of-town guests the true Chicago experience, being in the middle of the city was very important. Sarah Johnson, the wedding coordinator at the Omni Hotel was very helpful and put Kellie and Ian at ease from the beginning.
A selling point for Kellie and Ian was the design of the banquet room. The room gave Kellie the freedom to choose a hot pink and navy blue color palette. Kellie said she first saw these colors on Pinterest and loved the way the navy blue really made the pink pop.
The flowers were breath taking! From the flourishing pink bouquets on the table to the little pink roses on the cake, the flowers really added to the feel of the room.
“On the wedding day, our florist recreated exactly what we had envisioned—and even more. The flowers provided by Fiddlehead Floral were just magnificent. My bouquet was beautiful. I knew I wanted an all white bouquet, and had wanted mini calla lilies incorporated throughout in honor of my grandmother (her wedding bouquet was all calla lilies). Anice Arvidson, at Fiddlehead Flowers, put together exactly what I wanted,” said Kellie.
Everything really was pretty in pink!! MDM Entertainment supplied pink up lights for the room, making every part of the room glow. As the sun when down you could really see the pink pop out of the ascents of navy blue.
“Our favorite memory from our wedding day is definitely our wedding ceremony. Ian’s sisters officiated our ceremony, and we think it really made it so personal and full of love. It meant so much to us to have them be the two that “married” us, as opposed to someone we didn’t really know that well. It was perfect and everything we had envisioned for our wedding ceremony,” said Kellie.
Having a family member unite you and your loved one is the most amazing thing to see. Someone that has loved you for your whole life joining you to another person that will love you for the rest of your life is a beautiful thing. Kellie and Ian said they were lucky and blessed to have Ian’s sisters bring them together in marriage.
Kellie and Ian’s family helped out a lot on their big day, by not only marrying them but by helping with the decor and memorabilia. One of our favorite touches was the couples card box. Kellie said her mom bought it at a craft store, painted white and decorated it for not only the couple’s wedding reception but also for their home. It was adorable!
Bring on the Party
As the speeches and dinner came to an end the party began. DJ Nick R. brought the guests to their feet and out on to the dance floor. Luckily Kellie supplied her guests with flip flops because dancing all night sure took a toll on the ladies heels.
“Nick R, our DJ, was amazing! I knew he was perfect for us as soon as I talked to him the first time. He seemed to really understand our musical tastes, and on the wedding day, totally pulled through. Everyone loved the music he chose, and told us that it was the best wedding music they’d ever heard,” said Kellie.
Congrats Kellie and Ian! MDM Entertainment had an amazing time helping you have the wedding of your dreams. We loved working with the entire staff at the Omni Chicago Hotel, photographer Heather DeCamp, videographer Sally O’Brien and Fiddlehead Floral, Anice Arvidson.
