Melissa and Patrick knew a Stan Mansion wedding in Chicago was the perfect fit for them! They both went to Big 10 schools and incorporated their love of a good rivalry into the reception by naming all their tables after Big 10 schools – how fun!? Enjoy this gorgeous violet wedding!
When Mel and Pat were planning their wedding they knew although they now reside in Arizona that Chicago was the place for them! Having both grown up in Illinois and attended colleges in the midwest (him at University of Iowa and her at The University of Illinois) they wanted to head back to their midwest roots for the big day. They were married downtown at the gorgeous Assumption Catholic Church before we headed out for some iconic Chicago photos at Board of Trades and the Riverwalk. And of course a stop at for a quick photo at the United Center with Michael Jordan… it is Chicago afterall! From there it was off to party at Stan Mansion! The staff there, Art of Imagination and Juliet Tan Floral Design had the place looking amazing upon our arrival. They stayed true to their Big 10 college rivalry by naming all the tables after Big 10 schools. Ruby with Toast & Jam kept the place rocking all night! – Becky Brown
