Groom's Name: Matthew O'Brien
Date of Wedding: 7/27/13
How they met: The internet, arent we modern?!
How he proposed: Interesting story, he didnt actually, his daughter did. After much covert planning and getting a ring he had a wonderful surprise at a romantic restaurant in Chicago all lined up for our dating anniversary. However, his very adorable then 3 year old, who had been with him when he picked up the ring, came running into the house screeching with excitementHeather Heather, its a beautiful shiny ring, and I have a secret its for you! With his plans ruined he went ahead and went with the flow and proposed that day instead!
Wedding colors: navy, lime green, and fuchsia
How many bridesmaids: 6
Theme of Wedding (if you have one): Vintage library (the groom is after all getting his PhD in literature!)
Wedding Venues: Hilton Garden Inn (for both wedding and reception)
Why you chose to shop at Michelles Bridal & Tuxedo: Dress selection and the reviews of many happy former brides (including the maid of honor, my sister)
Part of your wedding you are most looking forward to: Really the whole thing. I love planning and I am really excited to see how everything falls together. We are having a special ring exchange for the grooms daughter, which I think will be incredibly moving ( I hope I make it through it), and well of course the most important part would be getting to be married to someone who I am pretty crazy about!
Where you are going on your honeymoon: Napa, CA
