Tiffany and JJ’s Wedding Reception at River Roast in Downtown Chicago

We recently had the honor of working with Tiffany and JJ for their unique wedding with some fun covid adjustments! 

The couple had plans for their wedding of 200 people at River Roast, located in River North in Downtown Chicago this November. However, as we know, 2020 hasn’t panned out exactly as expected for anyone’s plans. This couple wasn’t going to let this hold them back from getting married, so they moved their wedding up a month to October to be able to take advantage of the Chicago weather.

To comply with the current (at the time) covid guidelines and regulations from the City of Chicago, the couple shortened their guest list to under 50 for the first part of the wedding at River Roast, and then had some additional guests for the second part of the wedding (more to come on that!).

Tiffany and JJ held their ceremony at St Alphonsus Church in Chicago. After the beautiful ceremony, the guests all made their way to the outdoor (but heated) patio at River Roast for cocktail hour with DJ Paul Michaels. After a nice dinner (with a few great speeches) all the guests transitioned once again to the couple’s condo association’s parking lot where DJ Shannon was ready to rock with them for an outdoor celebration!

We really love how this couple adjusted their plans throughout the year so they could celebrate their marriage safely with their family and friends!

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!
