Hotel Arista featured in "Chicago Style Weddings"

Hotel Arista was recently featured in the September / October 2013 Edition of "Chicago Style Weddings" Magazine.  Check out the entire feature on pages 268 & 269.  Katie and Jimmy were such a pleasure to work with on planning their dream wedding!  A beautiful palette of Platinum, Fuchsia and White set the tone for a wedding that no guest could ever forget!  The ballroom was draped with sheer white draping and the dance floor was covered in white vinyl with the couple's signature logo and lounge furniture.  Elizabeth Wray designs helped to create a room that was not only breathtaking but magical.  The cocktail hour began with guests being greeted with butler passed hors d' oeuvres and champagne cocktails with a purple orchid as the garnish.  Dinner began with a First Course of Wild Mushroom Soup with Truffle Oil & Parmesan Crouton and Second Course of Classic Caesar Salad.  A decadent entree of Pekin Duck Breast and Filet Mignon was served.  After dinner, guests danced the night away to beats provided by Back Third Entertainment and enjoyed late night snacks.  The highlight of the evening was a special surprise mini-wedding cake presented to Katie's Parents for their 30th Wedding Anniversary.  Best wishes to Katie and Jimmy!
