Daley’s Daughter Moves Up Wedding Due To Concerns About Mother

CHICAGO (CBS) — The daughter of retired Mayor Richard M. Daley moved up her wedding plans because of health concerns about her mother, Maggie Daley.

As WBBM Newsradio’s Regine Schlesinger reports, Elizabeth “Lally” Daley’s wedding was rescheduled for Thursday, on short notice.

Lally Daley, 28, had been due to marry Sam Hotchkiss on New Year’s Eve.

More than 100 guests were able to make it Thursday to the ceremony . Uncles Bill and John Daley — and Mayor Rahm Emanuel and his wife — and other guests were all smiles as they walked into Spiaggia restaurant on North Michigan Avenue. Longtime friend Desiree Rogers also was there.

The bride reportedly wore her mother’s wedding dress.

Both mom and dad walked her down the aisle. The colors for the wedding were plum and silver.

Mrs. Daley has been battling metastatic breast cancer for years, and the former mayor recently said his wife had a difficult summer.

But she appeared to be doing well just a few weeks ago, when she made an appearance for her After-School Matters program.

Mrs. Daley’s physician, Dr. Steven Rosen of Northwestern Memorial Hospital, says there is no dramatic change in her condition, but he will not comment beyond that.

      • Jim Hamilton

        LOL I was just reading where Quinn paid 1,200 dollars to play with someone elses ding-a-ling hahaha

  • southside

    This is a PRIVATE matter. Shame on WBBM for blasting it.

  • tom Sharp

    How much are the Daleys charging the taxpayers for this?

    • Roberta Waker

      NOTHING. THEY paid for the wedding. Party pooper. Why can’t you be happy for the newlyweds and just wish them happiness and a long life?

  • fitz

    The bride, groom and parents look amazing. Alot of love there, something too many of us don’t know enough about.

    • Roberta Waker

      Right on. Someone that is happy about the wedding. You are so right, many people don’t know about love and can’t do anything but look a gift horse in the mouth for everything. No wonder this country is in trouble – we don’t look for the good in anything any more. Best wishes to the bride and groom.

        Roberta I hate to have to be the one to tell you this but all those body guards and extra security well the’re not free well it is to the Daleys but yeah we are paying for it. people have come to despise the name Daley and with good reason. The Daley family and yeah family have brought this upon their self.

  • Just Axin

    Happy about a wedding? Are you forgetting about all the corruption that is burdening Chgo that was brought on by the Daley family? Let’s not make Maggie out to be a hero when she finally kicks the bucket. She’s benefited from her husband’s ill gotten gains and still enjoys taxpayer supported chauffeurs. Good Riddance! BTW- What an ugly bride.

  • a cop

    will she get a taxpayer funded honor guard detail at funerel?

    WOW..What a bunch of nasty, cruel and assinine remarks. Say what you will about Daley, but lay off Maggie & family. This is a difficult time for them. I imagine that Maggie is in a bad way if the wedding was moved up without much notice. Whether you love or hate Ritchie to mock his wife cancer struggle or his daughters looks is beyond the behavior of decent people. I hope that you never feel the pain of watching a love one dying, & knowing that every day maybe the last. Living with the emptiness of your life when they are absent for holidays, weddings, birth of babies etc. If Ritchie is/was a crook is up to someone else to figure out. But, while there may have been hints of scandal in his political life, there has never been a whisper of anything but integrity in his personal life. No mistresses kept locked up & knocked up ala John Edwards. I am not a Daley fan, so politics plays no part in my remarks or defense of the woman. I am just sick & oh so tired of the meanless & lack of civility in life. People are nasty if you are from the “other party”, or if you believe in God, if you have a job & are sucessful etc. We have become a bunch of animals preying on each other. What a shi**y group of people we become. Okay, let the snark begin…
