We are excited to announce that Hilary and Chris’s wedding has been featured in Together Journal. We are so honored to have been able to share their big day through the planning and design process!
Together Journal describes themselves as “a fresh new concept in niche global wedding and lifestyle magazines and celebrates creative and authentic real weddings, celebrations and love from all over the world.” Their mission: to celebrate love in style.
The feature illustrates how Hilary and Chris first met through a mutual friend. The story is heart-warming and hilarious, and begins with Hilary telling Chris, “You can’t handle me.” To which he replied, “And you are…?”. They connected in person on her birthday at 11 PM and spent hours talking and getting to know one another. It must have gone well because the two stayed out until 4 am.
Two weeks later they found themselves signing a lease together. “They’ve been inseparable ever since.” One year later Chris proposed on the Kinzie Bridge — “the bridge right next to Gilt Bar, the very spot they first laid eyes on each other.” They were meant to be.
Hilary and Chris got married at the Cape Hotel on the beaches of Cabo San Lucas. Along with the black and white color scheme, they also had a tequila theme layered in the décor. Each guest found their name tag attached to a small tequila bottle at the reception. “The cigar roller added to the theme that was Chris and Hilary — as they frequently enjoy cigars and scotch at their favorite scotch bar in Chicago (Hilary’s Distillery).” Together Journal
They shared their first dance to Milky Chance, Stolen dance as that was the song playing when Chris knew he first loved Hilary. Magic was shared between the two and the night ended with fireworks.
