Guest Star: Kaitlin and Frank’s St. Paddy’s Day Soiree

The luck of the Irish was with Kaitlin Wylder and Frank O’Hare as they tied the knot this past St. Patrick’s Day at the Atrium Events space at Architectural Artifacts. They couldn’t have asked for a more warm and sunny day in the middle of a typically frigid Chicago March! Keeping with the festive spirit of the day, Frank & Kaitlin looked fabulous with their emerald accents like her adorable green shoes!

The ceremony began with a Stitely string trio playing some classical selections, including Pachelbel’s “Canon in D” and Handel’s “Allegro Maestoso” from Water Music. However, Kaitlin’s processional down the aisle was extra special with a surprising performance of “Theme 1 (Waltz)” written by Chicago native and Indie whistler, Andrew Bird.

With the buzz of the ceremony still in the air, the couple socialized with their guests until dinner. Their fantastic venue made for some excellent photos as they and their family and friends mingled amongst antique lighting fixtures, drawings, and architectural relics from around the world.

During dinner the Stitely contemporary quartet serenaded the diners with some of Kaitlin & Frank’s favorite indie tunes from artists like Radiohead, Wilco and Weezer. For their first dance together as husband and wife, the Stitely Orchestra opened the dance floor to Frank & Kaitlin with a jazzy version of “First Day of My Life” by Bright Eyes. Next Kaitlin danced with her father to Marvin Gaye’s classic, “How Sweet It Is,” and Frank danced with his mother to Smokey Robinson’s “Shop Around.”

Then Stitely kicked off the party with tons of Motown, R&B and Soul, and kept the floor packed with a mixture of party classics and modern hits like “Moves Like Jagger.” To satisfy Kaitlin & Frank’s love of ‘90s R&B and hip-hop, DJ Vincent spun during band breaks, playing hits from artists such as Boyz II Men. DJ Vincent kept the celebration rolling even after the band ended with Ray Charles’ “Shake Your Tailfeather.” But all good things must come to an end, so at midnight he fixed his final tune, “All Night Long” by Lionel Richie before sending the couple off.

Congratulations again to Frank & Kaitlin! We’re so pleased to be a part of your special day and we wish you nothing but the best in the future. Thanks also to our fantastic vendor partners: Food for Thought, Atrium Events, Victoria Sprung Photography and Hollie Smith from Sweet Chic Events!
