‘Englishman Henry Monsell grew up with Jagermeister on tap, so when Maggie Cunningham sent him a shot from across a New York City pub, he know it was fate. For her part “it was the accent that got me,” she said. 

Nearly 300 guests from around the globe gathered in Maggie’s hometown for their ceremony at Saint James Chapel. “It was less about the physical space that made it special, and more about the people and the miles they traveled to get there”. 

The Palmer House set the stage for an old-Hollywood-style bash–gold line tablecloths, leafy palms, strong cocktails and Frank Sinatra, courtesy of tribute artist Dave Halston. He might have stolen the show if not for the groom’s makeshift band, which performed an original country number titled “My First Rodeo” for the bride.’ – Modern Luxury Weddings

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!
