We did it! We surprised every guest at last weekend’s Union Station wedding with Lionel Richie! That is not an easy secret to keep and not an easy surprise to pull off…but we are proud to declare the night an incredible success and share a few Chicago wedding photos from the event. It was a luxurious and romantic wedding planned at one of the most grand Chicago wedding venues available – The Great Hall at Union Station. It was the perfect place for a Chicago celebrity wedding planner to sneak in a music legend to start the party.
The bride says that before she met her groom she knew that Lionel Richie would perform her Chicago wedding and sing her first song…and Big City Bride took that dream and made it happen! It’s a pretty incredible dream to get to bring to life and one we loved! Sending him on stage was an unbelievable feeling and the reaction from guests was unforgettable. Every jaw dropped and then every phone and camera came up. He sang “Endless Love” for the bride and groom’s first dance and then continued through a few of his classics for an hour long performance.
HELLO! Here Lionel is with the Big City Bride team! We’d like to consider him our newest member.
Lionel Richie and his band were wonderful people and lit up on the stage – radiating a good time and sharing so much love with the crowd. They are wonderful performers and talented musicians. It was the most fun and celebratory event we’ve been apart of.
It was pure magic….ALL NIGHT LONG!
