dEARBORN1

From Prospect Heights I drove directly downtown, taking LaSalle Street to avoid the distaste of Taste of Chicago.  A movie was being shot with the Board of Trade as the backdrop, like The Untouchables except this was all about touching.  A bride was puckering up to kiss her kneeling new husband. Camera men circling around. Ah, I love this town! Traffic was barely slowed by this.  Then I noticed the bridesmaids near the columns of Northern Trust.  Ermmm, not a movie scene after all.  This was a real wedding.  I love this town!

The party on South Dearborn was equally glamorous. My hostess, the mother of the groom,  flew in from Washington DC.  The mother of the bride flew in from Las Vegas.  The wedding will be in (where did they say?) I think, California or Hawaii.  Much of the family is from the Midwest.  So, natch, you gotta throw the bridal shower in Chicago.  That’s because you love this town!

Thank you, Lou Ann!———————————————

Stonegate1
Stonegate2This is a luxurious, spacious banquet facility in Hoffman Estates. The walls and ceiling in this banquet room were completely draped in white cloth, creating an environment designed to suggest purity. The chairs were covered in white satin with blue sashes. The effect was that of a glossy women’s magazine, heightened by the Barbie-doll perfection of all the young women who attended. The groom, the only male present, must have enjoyed this party. The fabulous gifts were as fabulously wrapped as you’d expect at an all-around fabulous bridal shower. In two hours, I drew twenty-three people, including six in full color. Thank you, Anne Marie!

BrideShowerFriends of the bride gathered together on Sunday morning in a bar to hold this bridal shower hosted by the bride’s sister. The Rail, a bar in the Ravenswood neighborhood, is surprisingly well lit, even has a sky light, which is, of course, where I set up. I drew for two hours: nine-teen in black/white and two, the bridal couple, in color. Thank you, Sophia.
