Joanna + James started their wedding day off getting ready at The Westin Chicago North. Joanna was gifted a sweet locket from James, and James received a dapper Shinola leather watch. They were joyously married at Old Town’s stunning St. Michael’s Cathedral, before traveling to their favorite flamingo mural at the Flamingo Rum Club.
Joanna + James took a quick afternoon stroll in Chicago’s River Walk, while boats passing cheered them on as a new couple, before heading back for their cocktail hour on the sunny roof of Ignite Glass. Mariachi’s serenaded guests as they enjoyed their refreshing cocktails and sunny weather.
The reception featured golden butterflies, viney floral accents, and lime-shaped place cards, garnishing blue shot glasses that Joanna and her mother personally brought back from Mexico.
Guests were free to roam in the glass sculpture garden, while others danced the night away. A glass blowing demo mesmerized guests after a plentiful Mexican feast. After dancing their hearts out, Joanna + James were shown off by their guests with streamers and lots of love!!
