Jenn and Tom's Wedding

Big

Our wedding was absolutely perfect! I think our guests were leery of a wedding on a boat, but the raves we got during and after proved it was a brilliant idea. Everyone asked how we thought of it. We used a wedding planner which reduced enormous amounts of stress. Chicago has incredible meaning to us and it was the perfect backdrop as we said our vows as the sun was setting beyond the skyline. Friends and family who aren't city people really enjoyed themselves being out on the water. The fireworks at the end of the evening capped it all off.

These are two kids who are/were photography students at Columbia University. While sweet, they are not a licensed or insured photography company. We used then b/c they are friends of a friend, but unfortunately, they were not very professional and despite giving them a complete list of pictures we wanted, we barely got 10%.

I was thrilled with my makeup the day of my wedding. My hair wasn't exactly what I wanted despite having a picture of the exact style. But both girls are incredibly sweet and I would definitely use them again.

Awesome! The Harbour has a great view of the city from the east side of Solider Field. Joe, the captain, knew all the perfect spots to go and right where to put us for our ceremony and the evenings fireworks. The only reason this is a 4 and not a 5 is because I prefer more communication and details when planning. Joe's a more laid back kind of guy, but when he says to trust him, I know that I can.
