Christian and Mark aren’t just super easy on the eyes, they’re also extremely intelligent and ambitious. Both working attorneys in Chicago, the moment they met they knew that something big had just happened.
When Mark decided to proposed, he pulled out all the stops. Pretending he was just pampering his soon-to-be-fiance for her birthday, he arranged for her to get her hair, make-up and nails done before taking her out that evening to celebrate. Creating a rouse to stop by the house real quick on the way, he led her to the back yard where – SURPRISE! – all of her loved ones were waiting to witness the moment Mark asks Christian to marry him.
A DJ and photographer were there to help make the moment even more amazing. They spent the rest of the night celebrating with their nearest and dearest and the rest is history!
When they reached out about booking their engagement session, they knew Lincoln Park and North Avenue Pier were the perfect backdrops to highlight their love story. We lucked out with a perfect summer evening. A warm sun, slight breeze coming off the lake and gentle golden light helped make these two beauties even more radiant.
Congrats, you crazy kids!
