In January we were honored to host the wedding of two good friends, Sarah & Brian. The bride and groom got ready and had their first look at the Holiday Inn Merchandise Mart hotel, overlooking the Chicago river. Jamie and Eric from Greenhouse Loft Photography captured their first look and some family portraits at the hotel.

Among other things, this couple really knew how to throw a cocktail-style party! Friends and family arrived at Greenhouse Loft at 7pm and were greeted with hot cups of glogg. This was a fun and festive winter touch that was sure to warm guests up upon arrival.

After an hour of cocktails and conversation, everyone gathered for a short standing ceremony on the glasshouse side of our loft, with a few seated rows for family. Sarah & Brian's wedding was officiated by their close friend Melanie, who had everyone laughing or shedding tears of joy at some point throughout the ceremony.

After the ceremony, everyone enjoyed a buffet of small bites provided by FIG Catering. Sarah is one of the talented DJs at Toast & Jam, and when a DJ gets married, you know a big dance party is bound to happen. Kristin from Toast & Jam kept everyone on their feet until the very last song. The bride's brother-in-law even did a surprise performance of Seal's 'Kiss From a Rose', serenading Sarah & Brian while wearing a Batman mask!
