After sightseeing all day in Paris, Christine and Jason had dinner one evening at Tour D’Argent at a window seat overlooking the Notre Dame Cathedral and the River Seine. Jason could not hold back his excitement and during the second course he got down on one knee, took out a beautiful engagement ring from his jacket and asked for Christine’s hand in marriage.
Why the Ritz….
The Ritz-Carlton was our wedding venue of choice because of its reputation for incredible food and service. We were also looking for a location in Chicago where we could have beautiful views of the cityscape during our wedding reception. The reception and venue exceeded all of our expectations, as did every member of the Ritz-Carlton team.
Highlights from the big day…
Seeing each other for the first time as Christine walked down the aisle to Jason at the front of the church.
Walking into the reception and seeing the beautiful setting created by the Ritz for our wedding party and guests.
Performing our much-practiced first dance and having no missteps.
Eating – every bite from the appetizers to the cake to the late night snacks provided by the Ritz-Carlton were deliciously first-class.
Having all those who we love there to support us during this magical day.
Sharing laughs as we took pictures in the photo booth.
Dancing until our feet hurt.
