Will & Jen were married earlier this summer in July. Their ceremony was held at St. Isaac Jogues Church followed by a reception at Esplanade Lakes Ballroom. We also stopped off at Morton Arboretum for some beautiful relaxed portraits in between the two events.
Here are a few words from Jen on how they met!
We actually went to high school together, but did not start dating until college. We both attended Indiana University in Bloomington. Will proposed in December of 2015. Jen’s family has a long standing tradition of building and decorating gingerbread houses together as a family each holiday season. Jen’s extended family comes over and everyone creates their own gingerbread masterpiece. Will had told Jen that he was just planning to build a normal gingerbread house, just a little bigger. Since Jen was so focused on building her own gingerbread house, she did not notice when Will snuck away to add a steeple to the top of his gingerbread house. Will then asked Jen to come in front of the Christmas tree to take a picture with his finished “house”. At that moment, Jen’s uncle carried out Will’s gingerbread church at which point Will got down on one knee in front of everyone and proposed.
