Kevin & Emily were married at the beginning of August and had planned an outdoor ceremony and reception at the Hinsdale Golf Club. However the weather didn’t quite work out and a storm blew through right prior to the ceremony. The HGC club staff did a great job of transitioning to an indoor ceremony which turned out beautiful. We were lucky that after the ceremony the weather cleared up and we were able to head outside to grab some really great photos on the course. Overall the wedding turned out great and the reception rocked all night long!
Here are a few words from Emily on their relationship and wedding planning.
Kevin & I met in the Fall of 2005 at Michigan State University through mutual friends. We got to know each other by spending time with our friends at the best places East Lansing has to offer – the Landshark and Lou & Harry’s! By the Spring of 2006 we were “official” and have been dating ever since.
On August 18, 2011 Kevin proposed – we decided to go for a walk on the lakefront on our way to our favorite neighborhood spot for dinner, Mike Ditka’s Restaurant. Kevin unexpectedly dropped to one knee, pulled out a sparkly ring & asked me to marry him!
We decided we would need a year or so to plan the wedding… Kevin’s only request was that our date “not interfere with football season” – for anyone who knows Kevin, this was a serious request. So August 4th seemed like a good choice. We are so happy to spend our day surrounded by our closest friends & family to celebrate!
It was a pleasure to have been asked to document Kevin & Emily’s special day.
