Chris and Katie met in junior high and went to high school together. They reconnected 18 years later and the rest is history!
Chris proposed in a beautiful suite at The Loews Hotel in Chicago on Valentine’s Day in 2016. They were married two weeks later while Chris was still on leave from the army. He was stationed in Korea and they waited until he came home to have their reception here at The Haight!
Katie knew she wanted The Haight to be where her reception would take place from the moment she walked in. She was hired by a Haight family member to do a family photo shoot here and thought it was beautiful!
Katie said “our reception day was 100% amazing, it’s hard to pick my favorite part.” Dancing with her husband was really special because he was finally home from Korea after being gone for a year! Also, having her mom by her side all day was special because she is her best friend! Overall being on the dance floor with her husband, family, and friends made the day!
Katie wants newly engaged couples to remember to take it one day and one item at a time when planning. She says don’t over stress, everything will fall into place!
