The Love Story
“We are a tinder success love story. We met on tinder and our first date was at a sushi restaurant in Chicago. Since that day, we have been together ever since. Our proposal was intimate in our apartment with no cameras or other people. Kate proposed first and had roses and a book of all the reasons why she wanted to marry me. It was perfect.”
“Kate made it clear she did not want a big proposal… no pictures, no one else there. She actually proposed to me the day before I had picked up her ring… I was hoping to have it ready to do at the same time! I picked up her ring and she wanted it on as soon as I had it. I came home, got down on my knee, and she said yes! My ring is a green diamond in the center, surrounded by other diamonds. It’s vintage inspired, but created by a fabulous jeweler at the Wedding Bands Company in Chicago. Kate and I stopped into browse and when I saw it for the first time I knew it was the one. Six months went by and I stopped in to see it two more times. When it was still there the last time, we both new it was meant for me.”-Kate and Suzie
Favorite Moments of the Day
“Cliche; but it was our first look. We hadn’t seen each others dresses and were filled with overwhelm and tears when we saw one another. We took our family to help us the day of shopping and we were blind-folded side by side so they could see the looks together. We both wanted dresses that would suit us both and compliment one another’s choices.”
“Another wonderful moment was walking down the aisle and seeing one of our siblings and sister in law wearing pride face masks. It was so nice to feel supported by family and by our church.”-Kate and Suzie.
Advice for Engaged Couples
“Don’t forget the day is about you and your love. We kept our wedding small (in part due to Covid) and without a wedding party. This worked for us and we really felt like we got to focus on one another. The reception/dinner was a time we got to include and focus on our guests and family.”-Kate and Suzie
