When two attorneys, Kaitlyn and Eric, practicing in the same courthouse, cross paths, a unique love story unfolds. They met in the bustling environment of their shared workplace, and from the moment they started spending time together, they knew they had found something special. Feeling at home and at peace in each other’s presence, Kaitlyn and Eric soon realized that their lives fit perfectly together. Their journey of love has spanned two beautiful years, culminating in a wedding that was nothing short of magical. This is the a love story at Cog Hill.

A Day of Love

Eric’s proposal to Kaitlyn was nothing less than a fairy tale. He meticulously planned a day filled with Kaitlyn’s favorite activities, making every moment special and memorable. The day’s adventures concluded at the picturesque Naperville Riverwalk, where Eric led Kaitlyn to a charming bridge. With the serene surroundings and the love of his life by his side, Eric popped the question. It was a heartfelt and emotional moment, marking the beginning of their new chapter together.

The Perfect Dress

Finding the perfect wedding dress is a significant moment for any bride, and Kaitlyn’s experience was no different. She visited Brides by Young in Schaumburg and found a dress that brought tears to everyone’s eyes when she first stepped out of the dressing room. Kaitlyn described the moment as magical, feeling beautiful and confident in a dress that perfectly matched the vintage elegance she envisioned for her wedding. The dress set the tone for a day that was both elegant and timeless.

A Vintage Dream Come True

Kaitlyn and Eric’s wedding at Cog Hill was a testament to their love and the beautiful journey they embarked on together. Originally aiming for a theme of vintage elegance, the wedding evolved into something even more wonderful than Kaitlyn had imagined.

One of the most poignant moments of the day was their decision not to see each other before the ceremony. This choice made their first look, as Kaitlyn walked down the aisle, incredibly special. Eric’s face lit up with love and admiration, and Kaitlyn felt the depth of their connection with every step she took toward him.

Eric’s favorite moment was seeing Kaitlyn for the first time in her stunning dress, while Kaitlyn cherished the celebration of their union with friends and family from various walks of life. The day was filled with laughter, joy, and an overwhelming sense of love and togetherness.

Advice for Future Brides and Grooms

Planning a wedding can be overwhelming, but Kaitlyn and Eric have some sage advice for couples embarking on this journey:

  • Trust the Process: Planning a wedding can be stressful, but trust that everything will come together beautifully.
  • Dedicate Time for Photos: Kaitlyn wished she had more time for photos after getting ready and before the ceremony. It’s important to capture those precious moments.
  • Be Intentional: Once the reception begins, it’s easy to get caught up in the festivities. Try to be intentional about getting photos with everyone, even though you’ll also want to enjoy the party.
  • Just Do It: Don’t overthink the planning process. Be present and intentional in your decisions, but don’t let it consume your life.

Kaitlyn and Eric’s wedding was a beautiful blend of vintage elegance and heartfelt moments, a day that will be remembered fondly by all who attended. Their story is a reminder that love, when found, is worth celebrating with all the joy and beauty it deserves.
