Couple: Jolie and Mike
Venue: Chicago Rookery wedding
Style/Inspiration: Architectural elegance

How you both met: We met at the University of Kansas through mutual friends. We had the same friends throughout college but did not cross paths until senior year!

Your proposal: Mike proposed in our apartment with four dozen roses to represent how long we had been together. There was champagne and lots of candles – very romantic. He knew better than to do it in public!

Style/Inspiration for your wedding: My inspiration was The Rookery’s gold-filled light court; I loved the architectural detailing and historical significance of the building. We chose our ceremony venue, the Chicago Temple, to match this similar architectural significance. I wanted the day to have a “big city” feel combined with a romantic ambiance, filled with lots of blush and pink tones.

Details that mattered to you: The pink and gold theme was important – I tried to represent that throughout the ceremony and reception. As mentioned, the Rookery details mattered to us as well.

What you love about your dress: I love the beading on the top and how it continues in the train!
