Kimberly and Matt grew up down the street from each other, but didn’t formally “meet” until they ended up in the same downtown bar and were introduced by friends. The rest is history! Their summer Chicago wedding features lovely floral by FlowersFlowers. Planning by Ever After Planning and photography by Ed & Aileen Photography.
Matt had told me a few months prior to reserve a date in a February for a dinner reservation at a hard-to-get into restaurant. That night we went to an early dinner, and when we came home he proposed at our home. After the proposal we went on a quick walk to the grocery store to buy champagne. Little did I know my family was hiding out nearby, and when we got back they greeted us inside. He then planned a third surprise at a local bar where all of our friends had gathered to help us celebrate.
DIY Table Numbers
We made our table cards based off of our childhood photos. It was really fun and funny for our guests!
