Meredith & Drew {Alhambra Hall Wedding}

Alhambra Hall Bride and Groom Portrait

Meredith and Drew met through their volunteer work at Imerman Angels – a Chicago based charity that connects cancer survivors with cancer fighters all over the world. It was founded by Drew’s cousin, a two time cancer survivor who served as the couple’s officiant. Meredith had thyroid cancer when she was 23. When she relocated to Chicago and heard about this charity, she immediately got involved. Eventually both Meredith and Drew were on the charity board together and after board meetings, the group would go out for drinks. The pair were always the last two standing. One thing led to another and about 8 months after they first met, they started dating.

One night, after the pair had a nice seafood dinner and cozied up on the couch for a movie, Meredith mentioned how it was a perfect Friday and she was happy to be home with relaxing with him. Drew left the room, came back, and proposed with his grandmother’s engagement ring. Meredith was in a state of disbelief. She said, “Even after I opened the box I had no idea what was going on. Drew told me that he wanted to spend every Friday night with me and asked me to marry him.” Originally Drew had no intentions of proposing that night but said that he felt it was the perfect moment to do so.

The couple wanted their wedding to be fun and relaxed. They decided on a backyard BBQ theme that included a pig roast, cornhole, and oyster roast. They chose some of their favorite colors for the wedding – orange, navy blue, and teal. A perfect fall palette to adorn Alhambra Hall. Meredith and Drew also included their favorite canine in the festivities – their adorable dog Artie. After exchanging vows waterside on the back lawn of Alhambra Hall, the couple joined loved ones for a classic bbq spread by Crazy Dutchman Catering. Following dinner, DJ Beats Bailey’s playlist got everyone on the dance floor to close out the last hours of the celebration.
