A Romantic Wedding at Wyndham Grand Chicago Riverfront Hotel in Chicago, Illinois
Ashley (29 and a receptionist) and Marcus DiSandro (28 and an account executive) showcased the sleek, urban beauty of the city where they fell in love by saying “I do” on the terrace of the Wyndham Grand Chicago Riverfront Hotel. In search of an aesthetic that felt vintage and romantic, the pair incorporated a purple and green color scheme into their decor along with lush, floral details. Bridesmaids wore dresses in various shades of purple—including plum, mulberry and lavender—while Marcus’s groomsmen looked effortless in tan suits and ties in a deep plum hue. The reception venue twinkled with vintage-inspired accents, like unique ivory lanterns and gold-framed table numbers as well as rose-filled arrangements. “Our reception was all about the dancing," Ashley says. "We kept the dinner and speeches short and sweet so we could get the party started right way." As the night kicked off, the newlyweds shared a sentimental first dance to 'Blue Eyes' by the Carey Brothers. "It was a song that we both fell in love with, and of course, we both have blue eyes,” Ashley says.
