This couple's journey has been challenging, yet so rewarding, and after working hard to train their adorable puppy Wrigley, they decided to take a vacation. On that vacation, the bride and groom flew home to go on a family lake weekend where the groom proposed! A short time later, they said "I do" at Trademark Venues on a perfect 80-degree day in Southern California. The bride danced beneath the stars in a twinkling garden that was truly magical thanks to Nancy Lobo Designs, all set to music courtesy of Pacific Entertainment.

This bride and groom met at Illinois State University where their first date was a chilly late-night dinner at Destihl in Normal, Illinois. After the groom graduated in 2016, they decided to move to Chicago, moving into a cute one-bedroom apartment on Clark and Cornelia in the heart of Wrigley, and it didn’t disappoint when the Cubs won the World Series in 2016! Ultimately, the bride and groom ended up in Las Vegas, with the groom pursuing his dream career as a police officer and the bride being a practicing nurse while dancing for the Vegas Golden Knights dance team. Spoiler alert: Scroll down to see a picture of the bride's surprise dance for the groom during the reception!
The bride wore a dress by Netta Benshabu, complemented with a cape by Calla Blanche. With lace detailing around the neckline blending down into a cathedral length train, it was hard not to feel the regal vibe of this statement bridal accessory. The look was completed with natural glam courtesy of Devynne Johnson and Jessica Keife - OC Bridal Hair.
