Our 2022 wedding season started off early this year with a winter wedding celebration for Kelsey and Mike. These two first met online and set up their first date at a funky little place in the Lincoln Park neighborhood called The Bad Apple. Over a few drinks, the time really flew by when they realized they had already been talking for three hours. Fast forward three years and Mike had the perfectly planned proposal. He told Kelsey they were going to take a look at his brother’s new apartment which happened to take them to the Lincoln Park area. When they walked past The Bad Apple, Mike dropped to one knee and proposed to Kelsey. Although the name of the place may be Bad Apple, it has proven to be nothing but good luck for these two.
Wedding planning can be difficult and stressful but it can be even more of a challenge in 2021 when the pair happen to be first responders – Kelsey an ER nurse and Mike a firefighter with the Chicago FD. We were so happy to see how flawlessly Kelsey and Mike’s wedding day came together – if anyone deserves it, it is these two. It was a treat to be able to see them relax and have such a great time to enjoy each other and their guests on the wedding day. One of our most enjoyable parts of the day was watching everyone crowd the dancefloor around these two while they cheered and applauded as Kelsey and Mike stole a few kisses in between the finest dance moves.
Thank you for your service as first responders Kelsey and Mike. It was a pleasure witnessing all the love and happiness you shared on your special day – we hope you enjoy your sneak peek.
A special thanks to all the vendors who made Kelsey & Mike’s day beautiful.
