I am beyond thrilled to feature Jaclyn and Chris’s September 17th wedding on Kristin Ashley Events!  It is crazy how “small this world” really is… I not only grew up in the same town, went to the same college, graduated with the same degree but I also have Jaclyn to thank for getting my wedding career started.  I took Jaclyn’s position at Engaging Events by Ali after she got a coordination position at the Fairmont Hotel in Chicago, IL in 2008.

Jaclyn and Chris’s wedding was absolutely breathtaking.  Jaclyn has always been a fun, sassy and stylish gal.  Her personality lights up a room so when it came to her wedding she wanted it to be nothing more than meaningful, memorable and well FUN!  Every last detail of their wedding was planned out by Jaclyn leaving the final details for Ali and I to take care of that day.  Chris and Jaclyn were as cute-as-could be dashing around Chicago with Studio This Is to capture all their wedding day moments.

Kehoe designed an incredible setting for the two.  Jaclyn’s vogue color combo consisted of ivory, gold, bronze and gunmetal with a splash of ivy green to mix up this modern wedding look.  She wanted the room to dazzle with candlelight, hanging chandeliers and amber lighting.  The Ivy Room looked magical and timeless…Jaclyn’s envision for her wedding day was without a doubt perfected.

This Purdue couple (and many of their Boilermaker guests) know how to party and what better way to throw a party than having Chicago’s best, Larry King Orchestra.  When all work is said and done Ali and I hit the dance floor with the couple and partied to songs like Black Betty, Don’t Stop Believing and Firework.  It was an unforgettable night for many of us… thank you for letting me be apart of it!!!
