When we think back to Megan and James’ July wedding, we think of a beautiful church, fascinators and mounds of yummy British candy! These two had so much fun and you can see it in the photos!

Megan and James separately and didn’t see each other until their ceremony at St. Alphonsus Church in Lakeview. What a stunning ceremony!

How We Met

“We met the modern way - Bumble :)  Our first date was at a dive bar, and James invited me to meet him...and two of his friends (the latter part not shared).  His crew was fun, and he immediately set up a date for the next day...just the two of us.  That date was a stroll through Lincoln Park and a stop at a British Pub, The Red Lion.”

About the Wedding

“The wedding day was the end of a great week of British and American fun with our families.  Both families came to Chicago early, and we were able to enjoy each other and the city.  The day of, the groom and his friends / family had brunch and then an early afternoon pint at Revolution Brewing before getting ready.  For me, my sister and I were able to get a 606 run in, and then we were off to get ready for the day.”

Hearty Boys catered and provided guests with watermelon pops, chicken & waffles, bacon wrapped dates and a beef tenderloin on a parmesan crisp all passed during the cocktail hour. Dinner included a chimichurri sirloin carving station, balsamic chicken and lots of veggie options! Yum!
