It was a hot and cloudy day in August, and the day marked a new beginning for Christina and Alek.
The couple had their ceremony at Old St. Pat’s in Chicago and their wedding reception at the historic Chicago Cultural Center. The reception was filled with Lithuanian traditions, and one of our favorite ones was the newlyweds entrance into the reception. Christina and Alek were greeted by close friends and family holding an archway of Lithuanian woven sashes, and at the end of the line the couple was then met by their parents holding a tray of bread (symbolizing work), salt (symbolizing tears) and wine (symbolizing joy)—the three elements of life. One of our favorite highlights was the grand wedding party table and backdrop as a stunning focal point of the room!
Christina and Alek were sweet, open to my suggestions for vendors and trusted in me to take care of them on their wedding day, so they could truly enjoy their day. I’m honored to have been a part of one of the most special days in their lives, and I wish them both all the love and happiness in the world!
