What’s a birthday without a few gifts? For guest of honor, Patrick, turning 30 marked a day of celebrating with less frenzy and more classy. The GQ inspired fete was held at the new art gallery of Gallery Guichard in Chicago’s historic Bronzeville neighborhood. Guests dressed in swanky suits and evening dresses celebrated over Moscow Mule, the signature drink for the night, and the sounds of urban R&B classics, spun by a private disc jockey. And then the night took a surprising turn after the champagne toast; Patrick took the mic and got down on bended knee. And popped the question… YES, the question; to his dazzling girlfriend Annette, who that night became his fiancé!
The experience for me as a planner was extremely heartfelt. Both Patrick and Annette are passionate people dedicated to making one another happy and I learned a lot from them during the planning of Patrick’s 30th birthday celebration. Congratulations!
