Andrew and Lilly met through friends and were so inseparable that night, that even the bartender was joking with them about their instant connection. They began dating shortly after that. Less than a year later, the groom followed the bride all the way from Los Angeles to Chicago. That is how she knew he was a keeper.
Andrew proposed on their 3rd anniversary following a gorgeous dinner on the 16th floor terrace of the Trump Tower Hotel. He was especially nervous that night, as the ring, which he had arranged to be shipped to their apartment on the day of the proposal to avoid Lilly’s sneaking around and finding it, had gotten lost at the post office. Luckily, after a few hours of terror, the ring was located. Needless to say, poor Andrew looked so nervous that night that Lilly quickly figured out what was going on. That only made the proposal more special and meaningful, and the amazing moment was marked with tears and laughter.
Andrew and Lilly’s goals for the wedding day were mainly to focus on the occasion as a celebration of their love and the start of their new lives together. Details such as great food, an elegant yet low-key atmosphere, and a band that would keep everyone on their feet till the early hours of morning were extremely important to the couple.
Mazel tov, Lilly and Andrew!
