As a wedding planner in Chicago, we are ALWAYS flattered when an industry colleague recruits us to help them make their wedding dreams reality. So when Katie Thome of the über-talented quartet known as Dolce Strings called us – we jumped at the chance to help her out!

Katie wanted a garden feel for her wedding to fiancé, Justin – but was also hoping for the convenience of a wedding downtown Chicago.  Well – lucky for all of us, this place actually exists!  The Crystal Garden at Navy Pier offers the ambiance of a garden with no worries about the weather report, city views your guests will die for, the fabulous cuisine of Phil Stefani Catering, and to top it all off – Fireworks!  How can you go wrong?  I would also be remiss if the Sci-fi nerd in me didn’t mention that she used the Game of Thrones theme music for a portion of her ceremony processional – the woman knows a good piece of music for a string arrangement when she hears it (and we spent many a meeting discussing the finer plot twists of the show as well!).
