Situated in the charming suburb of Arlington Heights, the Chez Hotel is a 4-star luxury boutique hotel that ended up being the perfect wedding venue for Emily and Garrett. On May 20, 2022, Emily and Garrett said “yes” to forever on an absolutely beautiful day.
The day started with the bride, groom, and their wedding party getting ready at the Courtyard by Marriott for the big day. The bride and bridesmaid’s looks were completed by Lily’s Bridal Hair and Makeup and once everyone was ready, the bride and groom headed outside for their first look.
The first look is definitely a heartfelt moment between the bride and groom. Garrett’s reaction to Emily says it all! The two shared this special moment together and Garrett could not hold back his tears. The couple got to have some time with just each other to soak it all in before the rest of the festivities began.
The couple and their wedding party made their way to Busse Woods to continue with portraits for the day. The bridesmaids wore mauve dresses, complemented by the spring color palette of the bouquets, floral arrangements, and groom’s and groomsmen’s ties.
During the ceremony at St. James Catholic Church, you could feel the love in the room. Garrett and Emily shared their vows in front of their loved ones.
The beautiful Chez Hotel is where the reception was held and Five-O DJ Entertainment got everyone out of the dancefloor to celebrate the newlyweds.
Thank you for letting me be part of your big day! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Knox!
