Couple: Ashlyn and Brian
Venue: Chicago Athletic Association Wedding
Style: Classic Chicago with rustic touches

How you both met: We both grew up in the same small Chicago suburb of Glen Ellyn, but it wasn’t until our college years that we met. Our first date was at the driving range, which was only the start of a number of sports-themed dates to come.

Your proposal: Brian surprised me after work on a Friday at my apartment with flowers, candy, and every single birthday/anniversary card I had given him since we’ve been dating! We then took a champagne limo ride around Chicago including a selfie photo in front of Wrigley Field. The night was capped off with both of our families meeting us to celebrate at our favorite pizza place, Spacca Napoli.

Style/Inspiration for your wedding: For our Chicago Athletic Association Wedding we wanted a classy Chicago Rustic feel.

Details that mattered to you: Flowers/Band/late-night pizza.

What you love about your dress: Lace/ Capped sleeve.
