On a gorgeous Saturday in June, Christina and Mike became Mr. and Mrs. Procaccio during their sweet ceremony at Notre Dame Parish in Clarendon Hills, and celebrated at their fun-filled reception at the stunning Hyatt Lodge at McDonald’s Campus. Saturday morning, the lovely ladies had their hair and makeup done by Tamara Makeup + Hair Artistry, and Town & Country Gardens delivered their dazzling bouquets. After taking a few separate portrait shots with Misha Media, Christina and Mike shared an emotional First Look outside the hotel in their beautiful gardens. A Touch of Class Limousine brought the bridal party to Notre Dame Parish, and after their traditional ceremony, the bride and groom sped away in the groom’s dad’s red Jaguar before Jimmy John’s delivered sandwiches for the bridal party for the ride back. Back at the Hyatt Lodge, MDM Entertainment provided draping behind the royal table, as well as pretty pink uplighting, a photobooth, and, of course, fabulous DJ services. Cocktail hour followed the ceremony in the Prairie Foyer, before guests were invited in to the Grand Prairie Ballroom for dinner and dancing. After a rowdy reception introduction to “Turn Down For What”, Mr. and Mrs. Procaccio cut their awesome blue ombrè cake together. The bride and groom then listened to heartfelt toasts from both sets of parents, the sister of the groom, and the groom’s best friend. The theme of this wedding reception was undoubtedly “no one goes home hungry”- Christina and Mike enjoyed a magnificent dinner of grilled filet mignon with caramelized cipollinis and Sauce Perigourdine, pan roasted Amish chicken breast with tomatoes, basil, Fontina cheese and pesto cream, filet of salmon with oven roasted tomatoes and capers, and, of course, family-style pasta! For dessert, guests were served cake and ice cream, AND offered a delectable sweets buffet including Italian pastries, biscottis, chocolate covered strawberries, and lemon ricotta cookies! But that wasn’t all- Christina and Mike also surprised their guests with late night McDonald’s in between packing the dance floor with a wide range of music from classic slow oldies to bass- thumping hip hop.
Congratulations again, Christina & Mike!! We had so much fun being a part of your special day!!
