I already shared the cool story of the engagement ring. " Now, as promised, the REAL WEDDING profile of Amber & Evan's May wedding at Hotel Allegro....

Amber and Evan were married on a perfect spring day. Before the ceremony, they went around the city with Terri, their photographer from George Street Photo & Video to snap some photos. Here they are in front of the beautiful Chicago skyline.

Of course, we natives know that the "Windy City" deserves its name!
They came back to the gorgeous Hotel Allegro for more photos. I love the lush colors and fabulous decor in this hotel!
The dress was so beautiful - the detailing on the back was just spectacular!

The event began with beautiful music - classical guitar by David Saenger. The ceremony was full of smiles - and lots of love. It was an intimate wedding, with only family and a few friends. But they came from all over the country - Washington, Missouri, Texas, Oklahoma and Iowa! When Amber & Evan said their vows, pretty much everyone was close to tears (even me!) You could truly feel the love in the room.

And, finally - the pretty cake. You know I couldn't leave out the wedding cake! Made by Rolf's Patisserie, the top tier was chocolate with raspberry filling and the bottom was almond pound cake with chocolate filling. Isn't this the most gorgeous blue?

So there you have it - the first REAL WEDDING featured on the AnitaWeds blog. Check back for future REAL WEDDING profiles!
