Brittany+Scott's Renaissance Hotel Wedding

The Proposal: Their first trip together was to Ohio University in Athens, OH in Dec. 2010 (which is Scott's alma matar). They were there for a wedding. About 3 years later (Oct 2013) Brittany and Scott returned to Scott's college for homecoming. Scott suggested they take a walk from the hotel to the campus to get to the homecoming tailgate. Once they got to campus, Scott began started to give Brittany a tour and the next thing she knew,  he proposed in front of his freshman dorm. Brittany thought all his friends were going to jump out and be taking photos, but it was just her and Scott alone, making it really romantic and special. It was fun to celebrate in a place that is near and dear to Scott and now is near and dear to Brittany and all their friends too. Brittany was very surprised, as she thought it was going to take place the following weekend, as the couple had a trip planned to London for Scott's 30th birthday. It was so fun to be surprised in Ohio and then to celebrate in London. Speaking of surprises, Scott is also planning the honeymoon and the location is a surprise!

The Wedding: The whole days festivities, planned by Linda Alpert, took place at the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Chicago. We started with Brittany getting ready. Her makeup was by Kristy Oliverio, hair by Gianna Pulia of Rocco & Rocca Salon, gown by House of Brides Couture, shoes by Kate Spade, and jewelry by Nadri. The Bridesmaids wore LulaKate from Bella Bridesmaids, and the Groom and Groomsmen wore Vera Wang suits from Men's Warehouse
After everyone got ready, we put Scott out on the balcony so Brittany could sneak up behind him for their first look. Then we took the whole wedding party to the Chicago Theater area for some photos before heading back to the Renaissance for the Ketubah signing and wedding ceremony. Videography by R.E.M, florals by ArtQuest LTD, and the evenings entertainment was by Front of House. The couple gave away favors of Garrett's Popcorn to their guests, and a great time was had by everyone!
Congrats Brittany and Scott!
