Mimi & Martin


Hotel Palomar is a brand new Chicago hotel on State & Illinois.  They just began hosting weddings, and Gerber+Scarpelli has had the honor and privilege of doing three of the only four weddings held there.  It's a fantastic space and for the right sized party it's the perfect location for a downtown Chicago Wedding.  

Mimi and Martin overcame a number of obstacles leading up to their wedding day.  While planning for the big event, Mimi was assigned a project in Sweden so she had to do most of the planning over the phone while trusting Martin's judgement on making sure it was executed the way she'd envisioned.  Not only that, but the Palomar hadn't even been finished by the time they booked it!  When it came time to sign Martin and the fabulous planner Melissa Philips were standing in a concrete room with hard hats on imagining what the room would look like while imagining how their decor would fit in.  Needless to say, they did a great job.  One of our favorite things about this wedding was the super long 40 person table for their whole party.  Not only did it enhance the feeling of everyone being a family at the wedding, but it was surely something different than most of their guests had ever seen.  It was a fabulous event with a fabulous couple.  Thanks to Mimi and Martin for having us be a part of your day!
