Jackie & Martin


The Perfect Match

When college sweethearts Jackie and Martin began planning their wedding, they knew one thing was a must: fantastic food. They found that and the rest of the items from their wish list - multiple party areas, outdoor space, and beautiful architectural details - at Kimpton Hotel Palomar Chicago, where the luxurious chandeliers and glam touches spoke to their personalities. Guests ate up the ambience (and that delicious food, of course), staying until the wee hours of the night.

A marketing class at DePaul University brought together the bride and groom, who loved the "exceptional planning support" they received from Kimpton Hotel Palomar Chicago.

“Martin and I were able to check out from the planning and focus on celebrating our big day with our friends and family. That was the most valuable thing." - Jackie

Memorable Details

The 90-degree heat made outdoor photos (captured by Brooke Svitak) a rather warm experience, but the sun's rays only added sizzle to the enthusiasm of the wedding party. At the reception, getting the lighting levels just right was important for creating a mood that was warm and intimate.

Memorable Details

When midnight struck and the wedding was over, none of the 140 guests were ready to stop dancing.
