Couple: Kate and Pete
Venue: Room 1520 Wedding
Style: Romantic, winter wedding

How you both met: They Say You Meet Your Future Spouse at Work…
Pete and Kate worked at COTG-Xerox for about 6 years until Pete finally got the courage up to ask Kate out for dinner. Since she already knew him and found him charming and funny, she thought she’d take a chance on a co-worker. The good news is, from their very first date (at Bristol on Damen Ave. in Bucktown – also where Pete proposed!) they’ve been laughing together ever since. They’ve created a fun lifestyle both living, working and enjoying downtown Chicago together!

Your proposal: Pete told Kate they were headed to a new speakeasy in Bucktown on a Friday after work while their friend was hiding behind a car to take pictures. Once they reached Bristol on Damen Ave, where their first date was, Pete looked at Kate and said they weren’t going to a speakeasy and started to get down on one knee at the front door of Bristol…..where they had their first date 4 years ago. The bartenders and servers were in on it and had a bottle of champagne waiting for them when they walked in to celebrate!

Style/Inspiration: Romantic, elegant, and simple. With lots of greenery, candles, and rose gold for late October

What you love about your dress: The front of it above the waist – very classy & sassy. Also, the handkerchief hemline and how It sways and twirls.
