Illinois-Chicago

BIG changes, please help me before I drown.

So my fiance and I were set to be married on March, 14, 2015 in Newport Beach, CA (we live in Chicago Suburbs). Well my fiance is going to be deployed
(US Air Force) very soon so we have to bump it up to February. We are making it a VERY small thing. My parents, his parents and sister. So five people plus us. My father is taking us all out to eat after but I would like to have a cute ceremony if possible. Any ideas anyone? Any help would be MUCH appreciated.

    First, a huge thank you to your FI for his service and keeping our freedom!!!

    Not sure where you are with all the planning but if it were me I would probably go with where we got engaged - the Sky Deck at the Sear's Tower in Chicago, IL. Have you considered where your parents were engaged or got married? They may be honored you asked them first! If that doesn't work I would go with a beautiful setting such as a park district, greenhouse, beach, etc.

    Joliet has a beautiful greenhouse called Bird Haven Greenhouse Conservatory and I just un-booked them yesterday for the 1:30 time slot becuase we decided to go with my church instead.

    Best wishes for both you and your FI.

    I know this is a very delayed response, but you can book a private dining room at the Signature Room at the John Hancock, and you can have a ceremony there too. Gorgeous.
