Ari and Matt’s Chevy Chase Country Club wedding was stunning. From sun up to sundown, the day was beautiful and sunny. It was also complete with typical Chicago summer June heat. Matt and Ari went to high school together in the Chicago suburbs. They have since put down roots near their hometown in the northern suburbs.
If you asked anybody who knew the two of them in high school, most (including Matt and Ari), wouldn’t guess they’d end up together. They were good friends but that was it. Regardless, life has a funny way of bringing these things about and the two re-connected over a Chicago Cubs game. And the rest is history. Matt and Ari love all things Chicago. It was only right that they get married there because it’s the city where everything began for them! Chevy Chase Country Club matched their timeless and elegant style. If you’re looking for elevated and classic you may want a Chevy Chase Country Club wedding.
The Day | Chevy Chase Country Club
The girls got ready in Chevy Chase’s dreamy bridal suite. Later, The bride made her way out to the sunny golf course to have her first look with the groom. After the first look we spent the afternoon on the golf course before the ceremony. The ceremony was filled with sweet and funny custom vows that reminisced on their history and all that is to come in their life together. They traded the traditional unity candle for a unity wine pouring. It was one of my favorite parts of the day. Matt and Ari have a deep love for all things wine (they even got engaged in Napa Valley). It was the perfect personal touch to their joyful ceremony. You could feel the joy and excitement from friends and family.
They celebrated all night long. They stepped away during sunset and enjoyed a quiet moment together. We took portraits on the golden hued golf course. Then they danced the night away with family and friends.
