Patrick & Sarah’s wedding was quite an event. Sarah is a celebrity hairstylist that works in New York – check out her site www.sarahpotempa.com, which is very cool! The wedding was full of exquisite details and surprises. The ceremony was held at St. Hyacinth Basilica, which I still declare the most beautiful Chicago area church bar none, while the reception was held in the Gold Coast room at the Drake Hotel.
Singer/Songwriter Will Knox made a surprise appearance (at least it was a surprise to the guests and Patrick) to perform the first dance song of Hallelujah. Will did a superb job with song originally written by Leonard Cohen and covered by many artists over the years including one of the better known covers by Jeff Buckley. You should check out some of Will’s songs on iTunes and his site.
