Chicago “I Do’s” with a Mediterranean touch
Andrea and Jimmy’s wedding journey began with a classic Christmas season proposal story at Rockefeller Center’s iconic ice skating rink in New York City. Being Chicago locals, however, they knew they wanted to have their wedding in the city they call home.
The couple’s wedding at Hotel Allegro drew inspiration from their cultural heritage (Italian for Andrea, Greek for Jimmy). This included dancing portion of their reception in the Walnut Ballroom starting with a handful of traditional Greek songs, a wedding cake was even decorated with olive leaves and a generous assortment of Greek and Italian pastries for guests to sample throughout the night.
The couple was sure to make use of the support and services provided by their wedding coordinator Alyssa and the greater Hotel Allegro team in turning their wedding day dreams into reality, ensuring careful attention was paid to every detail. From the cultural nods to the rich autumnal décor (a mix of gold, maroon and burgundy—perfect for their November nuptials) to the crowd-pleasing food selected for the cocktail hour and reception, the couple enjoyed an unforgettable day at Hotel Allegro.
