A Glam, Romantic Wedding with Modern Flair at Loews Chicago O'Hare Hotel in Rosemont, Illinois

A lush flower wall, crushed white velvet aisle and sequined linens lent a glam look to Marcy Sklar (27 and a pediatric nurse manager) and George Nissan’s (30 and a sales account manager) black-tie nuptials.
 
To honor their shared Middle Eastern heritage, Marcy and George incorporated Assyrian customs and music throughout their haute hotel “I dos.” “I wore a traditional yalekhta scarf and George carried a kopala cane,” Marcy says of their ceremony attire. The newlyweds gifted guests with colorful scarves before dancing the hora. “They were a hit,” Marcy says. “Everyone danced throughout the night.”

Pink peonies cascaded down the couple’s chocolate cake, which was filled with sweet strawberry jam and cream cheese.
