Chicago's most notable society blogger, web tv personality and former playboy centerfold, Candace Jordan opens up about her dream wedding...
"The venue would have to be absolutely the Drake Hotel" which, as she tells us is "one of the most romantic hotels in the world - I love the history, I love the way it looks - it's the perfect place. Not a big crowd but not a small crowd either, maybe three hundred people or so. I would have a big cake and a dress from Gigi's Closet, a specialty stone in a setting that I design myself and then of course, the ultimate honeymoon in Paris where we would stay at a little Left Bank hotel called Le Relais Christine."
And then she exclaims, "Wait - that WAS my wedding!"
"Chuck and I have been married 23 years now on July 21st and it was a dream come true. I feel like I’m still on my honeymoon, too!"
