With a little help from online technology, we first met at The Southern in Wicker Park. After our first date, we were inseparable, and rest is history! Riley and I are the type of people who bring people together. That’s the way we’ve always been before we met and that’s the way we are as a couple together now. So we looked at our wedding not only as a celebration of us and starting our life together, but as a way to bring all of our favorite people from near and far underneath one roof.
The vision we had for our wedding was a combination of industrial + vintage. We chose Bridgeport Art Center for a variety of reasons, but mainly because of Christine’s ties to the South Side, and because it was the perfect open space and blank canvas for us to personalize with our style, and have all of our favorite people under one roof.
