Dinner with a view

Looking for the hottest new venue for your next celebration?!


I’ve got a stunning one for you! I am always inspired and amazed by some of the occasions I get to document with my clients in any given day, but this event was something that I can’t stop thinking about. It was brilliant! A formal dinner for 12 outside on the lakefront with one of the best views of the Chicago skyline. Where you ask? Planetarium? Odyssey?  Some exclusive venue that could take months to get a reservation or cost you an arm and a leg………

Not exactly….The grass just south of the bird sanctuary along Montrose Harbor nestled between a few evergreens and some picnickers . Our public lakefront.  Access to everyone!  My client along with her parents, Jan and Mick, celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary took a risk and embraced the possibilities of what the evening could bring. It turned out to be the perfect evening with a killer sunset.

It was gorgeous, fun, and heartfelt. It was a true celebration of this couple, their family, and how to live in the moment.  Big Delicious Planet came to make the amazing meal all prepared behind a batch of evergreen trees and the running path.

I love what I do, but I am learning that it allows me a front row seat to what is most important in life…. celebrating friends, family, love and life!
