Ricky and Allie were married on December 12 at Westwood Tavern in Schaumburg. The restaurant is huge on the ground floor and the upper level is even larger – plus there is a large decorative room in the basement where Ricky and Allie had their reception. The wedding was in a large wooden room on the 2nd floor that was decorated for Christmas. We stood in front of the burning fireplace for the wedding. Allie was a little nervous before the ceremony began, so I spent a little extra time with her and she was beaming and beautiful when she came down the aisle. Ricky was very taken with emotion when he saw her and I gave him a handkerchief. The ceremony had just the right touch of fun, laughter, tears, seriousness and romance.
