A Winter Engagement on the Chicago Riverwalk: Christine and Kris

When their story began, they were friends and attending the same college together.  Christine and Kris along with a group of friends, scored $1 tickets to a Chicago Cubs game versus the Brewers in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and decided to make the trip on a spring day in April.  They arrived early to tailgate drinking some brews and eating greasy chesseburgers.  Just before the ballgame began, they started walking into Miller Park and Kris pulled Christine to the side while their friends kept walking.

He said,  “if the Cubs win tonight, I’m making you my girlfriend.”  They genuinely laughed all the way to the top of the nose bleed section they were sitting in and watched until the end of the 9th inning where the two rival teams were tied.  In an extra inning, Alfonso Soriano made a run that ended the game in a Cubs WIN! They cheered loudly with all of the other fans, lost in the moment, and Kris said, ” I guess this means your my girlfriend now.” He winked, gave her a kiss and 7 years later; they are planning the rest of their lives!

Here are a few of my favorites and I can’t wait for their wedding later this year at the Armour House! <3

The day was a little chilly, but that didn’t stop these two from a beautiful E-session

True Cub fans at heart <3

Christine… you are just gorgeous!

Chicago lit up during the winter months is pretty spectacular.

Afterwards they toasted with their favorite champagne to a wonderful life!
