“We met cheering on the Purdue University Boilermakers to their eventual, albeit close, loss to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Through conversations online and a few mutual friends, we began meeting for lunch on a regular basis. We bonded over good conversation and the adventurous eating our dining halls afforded us. Andrew charmed Rachel with his break dancing skills, and Rachel with her biology fun facts and never ending supply of charming personal anecdotes.
“Our wedding was no exception to the excitement and humble grandeur that seems to permeate Chicago. Getting married at Rivers was like having a corner of the city all to ourselves. The ceremony felt like everything was as it should be, including the zealous boaters as they passed by. Officiated by Andrew’s grandfather, we committed our lives to each other, and also to God.
