Marisa and Antonio wanted their summer wedding at The Empress to be a classic night to remember in Chicago, and they certainly got their wish! Every detail was glamorous, from the soft shades of pink in the peonies, to the pure ivory roses and glittering silver and crystal reception décor. Between the church ceremony and the reception, they traveled to Dominican University, where Antonio went to college. Once at the reception, the bridal party was announced with celebratory sparklers in hand and Italian cheers! After loving toasts were made, dinner was served to their 300 guests. Antonio took to the microphone to thank their guests, and Marisa was then escorted to a chair at the end of the dance floor. The groom and his groomsmen had a pre-choreographed dance for the bride, and everyone was out of their chairs dancing by the end. Annie Steele Photography captured their joyous celebration!
