Chicago Wedding at The Standard Club : Emily & Jon

This wedding at the Standard Club designed by wedding decor artists from Ronsley Special Events and Frost Lighting and planned by Reva Nathan and Associates left me, and the clients, speechless. I remember following Emily and Jon along with their families to unveiling of the ceremony room.  When we walked in, you could hear a pin drop.  All jaws were on the floor.

Decor aside, I have had my share of over-the-top, kind, loving clients.  So I will refrain from placing the Chapman's and Mark's at the top of that list.  To me, these special and unique clients are merely lumped into one big, gratitude-filled place in my heart.  To start, thank you both, and your families for making the day special for me as well.  
I released a few teasers to Emily and Jon last week.  Because of a busy end-of-the-season, and all the holidays, we are about 1 week behind in making our deadline.  While they were incredibly nice about the extension, they wanted a few images to wet their palette.
I sent them off, and that started a series of emails between the bride, groom and her mother over the course of three days.  Emily and Jon were both in tears, and could not be any happier.  And then Mrs. Chapman chimes in with a 48-page email about my adoption into the family, and already has provided me with a long list of every holiday I am to attend with notations about each Holiday.  
To give you a sense of Mrs. Chapman's out-of-control sense of humor, read her holiday list and rules below:
  • Valentines Day (Only jewelry gifts accepted)
  • Nana’s Birthday 3/28  (Bring 83 of whatever you buy to celebrate her 83rd)
  • April 1st Party (You will be the only one showing up)
  • Passover (BYOL—Bring You Own Laxatives)
  • July 4th (Jell-O-in-the-Park Chapman Family Picnic- Very gross and hot)
  • August (Month off from all Chapman family events)
  • September (Rosh Hashanah 4-hour svitz bath in apples & honey)
  • October (Wear-your-Halloween-costume-to-work-all-month family tradition)
  • November (Hang your Thanksgiving-belly-out-of-your pants family dinner)
  • December (Chanukah Family Bill Swap Party-Bring a bill you don’t want to pay and swap with someone else in the family!)
Looks like this is going to be a busy year.  And as Emily wrote to me the following day, "my mother is now convinced that you are her biological son so I understand if you need to get a restraining order or go into the witness protection program."
We all wish this world was filled with kind, generous and fun-loving folks to make the universe a better place.  Emily and Jon are clearly a result of their incredible parent's upbringing.  And the best news?  The two of them will pass this along to their children.  And then, there will be more people just like them in this world.  One person at a time.  
Emily, Jon, Mr. and Mrs Chapman as well as Mr. and Mrs. Marks, thank you all.  If you liked the teasers I sent last week, you are in for an enormous treat.  
Please enjoy the blog post I made for you.
Be well.

mens tall ugg boots chanel outlet If the foliage around a tree starts to die off then this suggests that the soil isn’t of a good enough quality to sustain the tree. In fact, this can be one of the first signs that the tree isn’t getting enough biological support from the soil. This is because if a small plant cannot survive then it means there are deficiencies that could cause the tree to die also. If you notice this occurring to your tree then you’ll want to water it some more and maybe add fertiliser. Make sure you check up on your tree to check that it is making improvements.
