Christina and Jimmy had a photographer’s dream celebration — 1) Outdoor reception? Check. 2) Unique, modern style and decor? Check. 3) Sweet couple, friends and family? Check, check, check. Overall, their day was a perfect blend of the classic tradition we often get in Chicago — with a beautiful ceremony at my favorite church, St. Clement — and a fresh, modern reception outdoors on the terrace at the Museum of Contemporary Art, which needless to say, we do not get a lot of in Chicago. They were blessed with a truly beautiful summer day that complemented the bright, modern palette Christina chose for the celebration that was brought to life by La Belle Fleur Events and Life in Bloom. Jimmy loves music, and Sarah Zimmer designed beautiful table numbers featuring all the couples favorite bands. Guests celebrated on the terrace, danced indoors, and then whisked the couple off with a sparkler exit on the front steps before enjoying ice cream from a Jeni’s ice cream truck. Such a fun day!
