plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

From the Bride-to-be:
Shortly after Doug moved back to Chicago from San Diego his friend Eric Gural came to visit him for the weekend. Eric and I became friends while attending Wright State University together several years prior. Eric insisted to both of us that we should meet one another. I didn’t think much of this at first, but Eric actually told Doug before we met that he better be invited to our wedding. The first time I met Doug was after a long weekend of male bonding (ie: lots of adult beverages), but I decided to give him the benefit of the doubt. The following Friday we met up for drinks after work and continued to talk until the sun came up the following morning. We both knew how lucky we were at that point to have met one another and couldn’t be more thankful for Eric’s introduction.

  1. What beautiful pictures, and a really nice story. Chicago has very special meaning to me too, so I really am touched by this post!
