Emma and Curt kicked off their wedding weekend right: by treating their family and friends to the ultimate wedding rehearsal and dinner at none other than Wrigley Field! Since the majority of their guests were from out of town, the couple really wanted to give their guests a taste of their beloved city. Emma and Curt planned fun city activities including a pizza party, a picnic in Millenium Park and welcome cocktails at Goose Island Brewery in Wrigleyville! Emma and Curt officially tied the knot during their Jewish ceremony on a gorgeous Sunday at the Art Institute Modern Wing. That morning, Curt got ready at his parents’ home in Lakeview while Emma, her bridesmaids, and both moms relaxed at the University Club, sipping yummy mimosas while Tamara Makeup + Hair Artistry took care of their hair and makeup. Matt from Averyhouse Photography and Zander Nunnelly (video) arrived just before Emma got into her gown to capture a few silly candids. After taking some photos around the University Club, the ladies walked across the street to the Art Institute Gardens, where Emma and Curt shared their First Look. Later that afternoon in the Art Institute Nichols Trustee Suite, Emma, Curt, and their families took part in signing the Ketubah before their ceremony. After their sweet ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails outside in the Pritzker Garden or strolled through the third floor galleries during Cocktail Hour. Guests then made their way upstairs to Terzo Piano for a delectable dinner including watermelon tomato salad, grilled hanger steak, and housemade gnocchi with cherry tomatoes, parmesan reggiano, and tomato basil sauce. Hello Darling created modern, ingenious florals and decor for the bouquets and reception, with arrangements wrapped in birch wood that included artichokes! Stitely Entertainment kept the dance floor jam-packed, starting the reception off with “Uptown Funk”, Curt’s son Micah’s favorite song! My favorite detail? Emma and Curt don’t like cake, so they decided to cut something they both loved: cheese! Their three-tier cake was composed entirely of different types of Brie! And the final Chicago-themed detail? Frango Mint favors!
Congratulations again Mr. & Mrs. Weiss!! We loved every single minute of your special day!
