Couple: Katy and Bryce
Venue: Chicago History Museum Wedding
Style/Inspiration: Chicago Romantic.

How you both met: We met at a “health school mixer” at a bar in New Haven, CT on Bryce’s first day of medical school at Yale. Katy was starting her second year of nursing school at Yale. Katy texted one of best friends (and bridesmaids) and said she had met a guy that she couldn’t wait to set her friend up with! Obviously things turned out differently.

Your proposal: Bryce took Katy to Mirror Lake Inn in Lake Placid, NY. Mirror Lake Inn is where Katy’s parents spend their honeymoon every year. After a day of skiing on White Face, Bryce proposed at sunset in their suite overlooking the lake. Afterwards, they drank a bottle of Malbec that they had been saving since their trip from Argentina in 2012.

Style/Inspiration for your wedding: Romantic.

Details that mattered to you: How beautiful the food presentation is, the flower and table details and the stained glass in the room.

What you love about your dress: The bodice/neck line.
