When Emily and Ben were planning their Chicago wedding, they made sure to incorporate important traditions from her home state of Pennsylvania: homemade cookies and premier Pittsburgh wedding band, the John Parker Band! The band was a huge hit at the couple’s rustic chic outdoor wedding and reception at the Galleria Marchetti, an exquisite wedding venue in the heart of Chicago. The evening’s photographer, Olivia Leigh described the reception as “one of the most epic dance parties I photographed this year.” EVERYBODY got out on the dance floor to celebrate with this fun couple. One guest even joined the band on stage during We Are Young, a song the band learned and performed just for the newlyweds, and the bride’s mom shared a family tradition by singing along with the band to New York, New York!
“I had so many people approach me that night, referring to the band, saying “best….decision….of your life”. I might argue that my new husband was the BEST decision, but you and your band were definitely a close second. You far exceeded our expectations!” – Bride Emily
Thank you to Olivia Leigh for sharing these incredible photos of the evening, and congratulations to Emily & Ben!
