Stephanie & Chris’ Martha Stewart Feature

Stephanie and Chris designed their wedding day keeping in mind the cities and countries that had been host to special moments throughout their relationship. They went with an old-world-European-meets-modern aesthetic, with bold décor set against the Swan House’s aged stone façade and overgrown foliage.

An aisle dotted with potted greenery led to a birchwood chuppah, where Margot and Drew said “I do”. Post ceremony, guests indulged in Jewish fare in the form of open-faced Reuben sandwiches and Westwood’s famous cheese bagels. For cocktails “Nothing makes Drew happier than a frozen pina colada,” Margot says of treating guests to tropical and watermelon-basil drinks. In a move that caught her groom completely off guard, Margot invited one extra guest to the alfresco cocktail hour: a Clydesdale horse. “My favorite memory of the day was when Drew caught sight of the surprise,” Margot says.

From the couple… The story or how we met is almost a punchline… We met on Tinder (before it got creepy). However we quickly realized we did have a connection as she was the beautiful babysitter of his next-door neighbors that he didn’t have the courage to ask out, in the traditional sense. We quickly realized our connection and were engaged 18 months later! Our styles are somewhat conflicting, she likes classic and he likes contemporary. The Chicago Athletic Association provided an opportunity to have both. The building was originally opened in 1890 but was painstakingly restored in 2015, adding modern amenities to a very historic piece of Chicago architecture. Wanting to create a formal atmosphere while still keeping things simple, we invited guests black-tie optional and went with classic themes, white flowers, gold accents, and tried to highlight the beauty of the location as much as possible. Our favorite moments were certainly having all the nieces and nephews gathered for photos before the ceremony and witnessing several meltdowns, including a classic photo of one of our flower girls completely shutting down before walking down the aisle! So many memories from that day, from fantastic September weather conditions to some incredibly creative/funny toasts to having our 90-year-old grandparents lighting up the dance floor! We couldn’t have been happier with that day and we hope it is symbolic of our lives ahead of us!
