A Glamorous White and Gold Rooftop Wedding at The Ambassador in Chicago

It was a family affair for Kristen LeSchander (40 and an interior designer) and Andrew Johnson (45 and works in commercial construction sales), who exchanged vows after nearly a decade together with their son and daughter by their side. Acrylic elements offered a modern flair to the design, while silver lanterns and compact clusters of white hydrangeas spruced up the expansive ceremony space where onlookers enjoyed unparalleled views of the Chicago skyline high atop the hotel’s open-air terrace. “I wanted an evening lit up by the skyline and stars,” Kristen says of their rooftop nuptials. Dinner plates were adorned with geode napkin rings and personalized thank-you notes, and the couple further customized their party with a modern monogram that appeared throughout the stationery suite.
