Here's a pic of the happy couple:

Anywho, my mom and I threw a rehearsal dinner get together for them. The wedding was held in Chicago where he lives. We rented a large 6 bedroom house/mansion (to-may-toe/to-mah-toe). It was a great place to stay and a wonderful venue for the get together. In our family, we very rarely have things catered or hold parties at hotels or restaurants. I think the very best way to show someone you want them to be your guest is to invite them to your home and serve them food and drinks you've made yourself. Just me . . . . so when we figured out we wanted to throw this party, finding a house/venue all in one was AWESOME.
I went with a black and white and yellow theme. First of all, black and white always make a statement, and I already had some pops of yellow to bring along. Here are a few pix!
