Rebekah and Josh first met in college where their relationship started as a friendship and after a few years blossomed into something much more. These two realized how much they enjoyed each other’s company and knew their love was meant to be!
It is Josh’s hard work and kind heart that Rebekah loves most about him, and let’s not forget to mention his handsome beard! Rebekah’s thoughtfulness, strive for perfection and beautiful smile are only a few of his favorite things about her that led him to propose.
After a day full of activities, including lunch, ice skating and walking around downtown Chicago, Josh proposed to Rebekah with the city skyline as a backdrop. With a yes, the next step in their love story began!
It was time to choose a venue and start planning! The uniqueness of the Haight is what made them choose this space for their special day. The exposed brick and industrial look of the venue blended perfectly with the style they had in mind!
It was a short engagement for Rebekah and Josh since September is just too pretty to pass up! The day flew by and everything seemed like a blur to both of them. The best part of the day for Rebekah and Josh was the exchange of vows and saying “I do” with Josh’s grandfather officiating! Once the pre-ceremony nerves were out of the way, they were able to enjoy the good food, friends and family!
Rebekah and Josh felt that having their family and friends traveling from all over made their day even better. The personal connection they had with most of their vendors simplified a lot of things for them. The special touches on the flowers, food, cake, etc. were made specifically to the likings of Rebekah and Josh!
Even though the day goes by fast, Rebekah says that every detail you have planned should go as expected—with the help of the Haight staff.
(We are always here to make your day easier!)
The advice that Rebekah and Josh have for newly engaged couples is to enjoy your engagement, wedding day, and find time to enjoy each other in the midst of it all!
