Guest Star: Mike and Shaska’s Chicago soiree

Shaska & Michael were married in a beautiful ceremony on May 12 at the Chicago History Museum. The Stitely Orchestra was thrilled to be there as this super sweet couple tied the knot.

This modern couple shook up the traditional in more ways than one, beginning the evening with an hour of cocktails followed by their ceremony. Stitely’s solo pianist played a few of their fav. indie tunes like “Chicago” by folkie Sufjan Stevens for the processional and “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea” by Neutral Milk Hotel for the recessional. During the the delicious dinner catered by Food For Thought, Stitely’s contemporary quartet serenaded the guests with songs by artists like Wilco and Radiohead.

After dinner, Mike & Shaska kicked off the party with their first dance- a special version of “Wonderwall” by Oasis that segues into the fourth verse of “Born to Run” by Bruce Springsteen. Then Shaska and her father danced to “Stand By Me” by Ben E. King, followed by Mike & his mother’s dance to Elvis’ hit “Wonder of You.”

With the cake cut, toasts given, and special dances danced now it was time to party! The Stitely Orchestra packed the dance floor with an evening filled with hits from the ‘90s, 2000s and 2010s for the modern bride and groom. A favorite moment was watching Shaska, Mike and all of their friends rock out to “Fire” by Bruce Springsteen. After the band played their last song, “Remix to Ignition” by R. Kelly, DJ Vicente stepped in to spin and keep the energy going until the very last minute.

Congrats again to Shaska & Mike, we wish you nothing but the best! Thanks to the wonderful vendors who helped this evening shine: Zeena & Savira at Oliveaire Artisan Events, Robert at REM Video and Photography & Jennifer from Food For Thought.
