And we were off to the Train Station because it was a windy, take your breath away 12 degrees outside in Chicago…and had to be in the double negatives with the windchill! Yikes!

I can’t believe Diane endured this….she’s such a trooper! I was totally scared I would have my first bride with frostbite!

One amazing cocktail hour…complete with incredible food and LOTS of it…which continued through the end of the night with meals, snacks and desserts galore! Oh soo tempting for a pregnant chick! ๐Ÿ˜‰

And then the stunning reception…

Hunter and Diane did the countdown! HAPPY NEW YEAR 2010!!!!!!!

After the incredible cocktail hour, then salad and a full dinner, then cake, then a full dessert and fruit bar, they had a late night snack to complete the night!
