ILLINI Newlyweds: Dena and Peter

by | Jun 15, 2022 | Real weddings

What a privilege it is for us to share the sweet love story Dena and Peter! These two newlyweds met while students at the University of Illinois and members of the club tennis team. After college graduation, the couple had a gorgeous celebration at Brix on the Fox surrounded by their favorite people in the world. We’re excited to showcase the details, smiles and joy of their beautiful wedding day.

We were close friends for about a year before Peter initiated the first date. I was hesitant, but he was so persistent!  We had the best time on that date, and then became inseparable for five years before he proposed on a trip to Greece. I still can’t believe I really married my best friend and the love of my life! 

 “I tried on dresses at multiple places, and chose Kathryn’s because they had a beautiful selection to choose from. The stylists were patient, kind, knowledgeable and really listened to what I was looking for. The dress I ended up choosing was actually one that my stylist had chosen for me! 

“Our wedding party was spread out across the country, and Kathryn’s was great with helping us keep everyone’s measurements for bridesmaid dresses and the groomsman attire organized even though some were not able to come into the shop until the week of. Kathryn herself texted me on more than one occasion to make sure the details were as I wanted them. Kathryn’s was wonderful and we definitely recommend them!”  ~ real bride Dena
