Morton Arboretum is a place in the south-western Chicago suburbs where people go to relax, find inspiration, and admire the full beauty of Chicago’s flora. This place isn’t just a place where flowers bloom; it’s also a place where love and shared live paths commence. Two such live paths that were recently unified at Morton Arboretum were those of Matt’s and Christine’s.
Matt and Christine are among the most adorable couples. Their stories are full love and dedication. One of such most recent stories is the one of their proposal. Christine anticipated the proposal on multiple occasions. One such occasion was when a magician they had randomly walked into, pulled a card out with a ring on it. The actual proposal, however, was much more elaborate. Matt had conspired with Christine’s boss to arrange a fake business trip to Wisconsin. It took a lot of planning and coordination to find the boss, plan the trip, and get it all executed seamlessly. When the day of the “business” trip arrived, Christine left the house. However, soon after, she learned that she was going to Disney World in Orlando with her beloved one.
On the wedding day, the two got ready in separate locations while surrounded by loving family and friends. The morning went by quickly. Once Matt was ready to start the big day, he went to one of the small forests in Morton Arboretum where he waited patiently to see his beautiful bride wearing her wedding dress. This first look was a sweet and sincere moment; the two exchanged cute looks and adored each other. Following it was the ceremony which took place out in the beautiful hedge gardens and the reception inside a beautifully decorated banquet hall. The day went by many smiles and cheers and occasional tears. The speeches were filled with sweet, heartfelt stories.
Matt and Christine, thank you for allowing us to be a part of your beautiful wedding day. We’ve enjoyed working with you and your friends and family. We hope that the images from your wedding remind you of this beautiful day forever.
