A little fun story about The Park Wedding!! Courtney and Dan were my first 2022 couple that I had booked. Courtney reached out to me in August of 2020! I had no idea at the time that 2022 would turn into a wedding boom, but her reaching out just shy of 2 years in advance should have been my first clue. So when we were celebrating a couple of weeks ago, it truly felt like we were waiting on this day for a long time! And their Saint Pius X Wedding came together so beautifully.
Courtney and Dan met at work. PHMG was Courtney’s first job after college. Courtney was the only new sales start and Dan had a new engineer starting. Their company takes new starters out for drinks and dinner to help them meet other employees and get to know the company a little better. They had sent Courtney with Dan and his team, since she was the only new starter in sales! The two hit it off that night and have been together ever since. They even have a picture together from the first night they met on Michigan Avenue. How sweet is that? Not many people have those precious photos from the very first night they met their husband or wife.
Dan had a plan to propose to Courtney in Jamacia, but when the world shut down, plans changed, but that didn’t mean the proposal wasn’t going to happen. Instead he proposed in their first apartment together with flowers and champagne. How perfectly intimate!
Their springtime Saint Pius X Wedding in Granger was absolutely stunning. The neutral champagne colors complimented the navy blue suits. Poppies did a perfect job with the delicate white florals making it feel fresh and classic. I am so excited to share this beautiful day with you! Congratulations again Mr. and Mrs. Park!!
