Claudia & Tyler

Venezuelan beauty Claudia met her native Chicago boy online and seven hours into their first date, they knew they had found something very special. A couple years and a sweet little pup named Cali later, Tyler popped the question while the two were glamping in the Smoky Mountains!

Planning the wedding during Covid brought on a slew of unprecedented challenges, but these guys were definitely up to the task! They assembled an amazing team of vendors who beautifully brought Claudia’s vision to life. The wedding day itself was perfection; 75 degrees and sunny which was ideal for their outdoor reception. After a beautiful Catholic mass ceremony, the couple made a pit stop at one of their favorite date spots for ice cream!

The reception was held at the elegant Exmoor Country Club in Chicago’s northern suburbs. Luscious white blooms offset in lush greenery, golden candlelight and the most beautiful sunset imaginable truly made this a knock-out day! While they did have to make major concessions due to Covid (the guest list was cut way down, family couldn’t travel from South America, dancing was limited to just the first dances and the decision was made the day before to move entire affair outside to keep people safe!), the resulting ‘do was absolutely jaw dropping, elegant and full of so much hope and joy.

This wedding goes to show that you can safely celebrate your love without sacrificing one iota of style during Covid!
