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. And the fact that it’s the city where everything began for them, it was only right that they get married there! There was no better place than Chevy Chase Country Club to match their timeless and elegant style. If you’re looking for elevated and classic you may want a Chevy Chase Country Club wedding.
The day started in the dreamy bridal suite with the girls. 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. The coolest part of it was that they traded the traditional unity candle for a unity wine pouring. Since the two 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 as they greeted each guest after the ceremony.
The newly married couple celebrated the night away. They had some quiet moments on the golden hued golf course at sunset for some golden hour portraits then danced with family and friends.
