Mari & Douglas


A Complimentary Couple

Marriage is about two becoming one, and Kimpton Hotel Palomar Chicago reflected that for Mari and Doug by combining his modern aesthetic with her penchant for the traditional in one beautiful space. "The ballroom particularly was fabulous," say the bride and groom. "In contrast to many other hotel ballrooms in downtown, the ballroom at the Palomar has windows on three sides and outdoor space. It was so elegant and was so much more than a ballroom." The central location and superb service also made it an ideal spot for friends and family from out of town to stay.

Best. Night. Ever.

After the ceremony, the guests enjoyed cocktail hour while the new bride and groom took a moment to themselves before joining family and friends. With a sneak peek of the ballroom, they were ready to get the party started.
