How Sergei Knew He Had Found the One

“We spent quite a bit of time together and during that time I could tell we shared the same values as one another. I loved her calm nature and clear thinking and one day I knew I needed to tell her I loved her.”

Why Chicago?

“Our friends and family live in Chicago and New York so in order to make it work logistically we decided on celebrating our big day here in the Windy City.”

Attention to Detail

“Pinstripes has large windows and gorgeous wood surfaces in their halls, so our florist was really able to bring the space to life with roses, gold accents, and romantic lights.”

Renata’s Favorite Memory

“We had planned an outdoor ceremony for our wedding and with rain in the forecast, I knew all hope was lost. My spirits were low, but Sergei reminded me about faith. The rain had subsided just long enough for us to take our photo session in our favorite outdoor locations before the rain resumed.”
