Mary and Ian’s Wedding at Maggiano’s in River North Downtown

Words can barely describe this wedding of these Loyola University Alumni!

Mary and Ian met a few years back at Loyola University while they were in a writing workshop class together. They immediately hit it off and have been together ever since!

The couple had their wedding ceremony at the Madonna della Strada Chapel at Loyola, which is only fitting, and then made their way to River North to get the reception started!

Andi Allen and her team did an awesome job transforming the room into one of the most beautiful wedding receptions we’ve seen all year! They had tall floral centerpieces with hanging candles as centerpieces at each table, with many of these centerpieces on the head table (check out the pictures below).

DJ Paul and Assistant Evan got the party started and kept the dance floor packed until the very end (even though the bars had closed an hour prior, which is always an accomplishment!)

Check out the pictures below for a quick recap of their wedding!

Samantha and Eric’s Wedding Ceremony and Reception at the Lake Ellyn Boathouse

DJ Ryan recently provided wedding ceremony and reception DJ services for Samantha and Eric at the Lake Ellyn Boathouse in Glen Ellyn. Samantha and Eric got married in November of 2015 but held off on having their ceremony and reception for friends and family. They live in Seattle and wanted to find a good time to have their destination wedding in Chicago (they are both originally from the Chicagoland area). This beautiful couple met at work, and the rest of their story is history from there!

DJ Ryan provided audio coverage for their outdoor ceremony (can be seen in the facebook post below) and then they moved indoors for the rest of the reception where the couple and their guests danced all night!
