In my last post, I shared Kelsey and Dave’s getting ready and photos around the city. Now, I’m excited to share their ceremony and reception!

Kelsey and Dave held their ceremony in the atrium at the Ravenswood Event Center. The room was filled with beautiful, warm sunlight and the couple accented the room with big, red balloons! Their ring bearer was even lucky enough to walk down the aisle with a big red balloon of his own.
What a beautiful aisle for Kelsey to walk down in a fantastic space!
Finally, Kelsey and Dave were officially husband and wife!
While the ceremony was taking place upstair, I was downstairs making sure everything was ready for the cocktail hour and dinner.
Kelsey and Dave’s cake incorporated special details, including their cat, the Chicago skyline and the London skyline.
Mustaches were a theme throughout the day, and I love how the couple incorporated them into their escort cards! The gentlemen received mustaches and the ladies received big, red lips.
They were a big hit with the guests!
During dinner, I went back upstairs to the atrium to get ready for the dancing part of the reception. Kelsey and Dave crafted an amazing sweets table for their guests! They provided some chocolates and other items that were special to them, and then Luscious Layers provided delicious whoopie pies and all kinds of tasty treats.
The red balloons from the ceremony were also repurposed around the room.
Kelsey and Dave shared their first dance…
…and then the dance floor was opened up to everyone. This group was not shy and everyone had so much fun!
To keep the party going, a hot dog cart was rolled out and Chicago-style hotdogs were provided as a late night snack. Yum!
Kelsey changed back into her cheongsam and the couple danced the night away!
Kelsey and Dave, I had so much fun being a part of your day!
