Matthew & Christiana were married in July. Their ceremony was held at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church and the reception was held at the Palmer House. We spent some time taking photos around Millenium Park prior to heading into the reception location. What a wonderful wedding day and a gorgeous couple!
A little information about how the bride and groom met.
In September of 2011 Matt was a senior emergency medicine resident at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago. One day an anesthesia intern named Christiana showed up for her first shift of her required emergency rotation. Both were wearing scrubs and neither looking their best. Showers may or may not have been omitted that morning.
Despite that, Matt asked her out for drinks about halfway into their first shift together (it was all very Grey’s Anatomy), they went out later that week and started dating quickly after that.
After about 2 years Matt figured he’d better lock this down… In the words of a close family friend of the Roussis family “what the hell are you waiting for?”
So he made her a photobook about their relationship that culminated in a proposal. She said, “oh my gosh! I can’t believe you did all this!” and then after some further prompting said “yes!”
They celebrated with family and friends at the Drake Hotel.
