Casey & Phil

by | Jan 2, 2023 | Real weddings

We have the joy of introducing you to our first couple of the new year, Casey & Phil.   

The newlyweds met at an area Young Adult Ministry Gala. And according to the bride,  “As the event started, we all sat down for dinner and Phil walked into the event so late that everyone clapped and cheered as he strutted in. When everyone cheered I thought “who is this man?” and I knew I wanted to meet him. We connected on the dance floor, danced together, and he invited me to more group events. We started dating two months after that, became engaged a year and a half after meeting, and were married 10 months later.

The couple exchanged vows at Saint James Catholic Parish followed by an elegant reception at Chevy Chase Country Club. The bride wore a beautiful gown named Kirby from Kathryn’s Bridal Private Collection.  Kathryn’s Private Collection is a gorgeous curated group of chic gowns  personally selected for our unique brides by our owner Kathryn Trocki.  The dresses are size inclusive yet style exclusive and not available in any other area boutiques. Additionally, the Private Collection gowns include couture details, luxury fabrics and sophisticated styles that are highly romantic.  

“I chose Kathryn’s Bridal because I grew up in McHenry and it felt like I got to wear a piece of my hometown on my wedding day. The other reason I chose Kathryn’s and the reason I would recommend it is because the wedding gowns are stunning, high-end designer while still being in my price range, and they have a variety of styles to find the perfect one. I would also recommend Kathryn’s because everyone there is knowledgeable and kind. When I went for my appointment, I felt like I was the top priority and every fitting with the seamstress made the dress more perfect,” ~ real bride Casey
