Rachel & Scott in Chicago, IL

The Bride Rachel Garko, 29, a nanny The Groom Scott Pasquini, 32, director at Madison Dearborn Partners The Date November 13 Rachel and Scott wanted a quintessential Chicago venue for their formal reception. So the iconic Drake Hotel, with its ornate gold columns, crystal chandeliers and floor-to-ceiling windows, was a natural choice. Instead of going with traditional fall colors, they let the amethyst bridesmaid dresses Rachel had found dictate the romantic color palette, while flowers decorated everything (including Rachel's gown!).
