Today, we proudly present the local love story of Katelyn and Michael.
“I grew up in McHenry and met Michael right out of high school in a performance based activity! Through time, we have moved on from performing to now sharing our passion by coaching together,” shares Katelyn.
The couple exchanged vows at Saint Joseph’s Catholic Church in Libertyville, followed by an elegant reception at Meridian Banquets in Rolling Meadows.
The bride wore a romantic, soft ballgown from international designer, ÉLYSÉE’s ÉTOILE Collection. The couture dress features detachable off-shoulder tulle sleeves with a hint of lace, a dropped waist and fully constructed illusion bodice, and sparkling floral lace cascading softly into the flowing tulle skirt. Katelyn also chose a delicate cathedral veil to finish her perfect look.
“It was important for us to involve trusted local and small businesses in our hometowns to make our day special. Choosing Kathryn’s not only gave me the reassurance that I would find the perfect dress but the process was seamless and exciting! To this day, I look at my wedding dress and want to put it back on a dance the night away just like our wedding night. Thank you so much for helping me find a dress that expressed myself and helped make the process and wedding day amazing!” ~ real bride Katelyn.
