AJ and Katy

A fall wedding in Chicago, IL.

About the Wedding

AJ chose to stand out in a navy blue suit while his groomsmen wore textured gray groomsmen suits for his and Katy's fall wedding in our home city of Chicago. AJ's tie color paired with Katy's bouquet while the groomsmen's tie color paired with the purple bridesmaids dresses.

Please, tell us your engagement story!

AJ proposed on my birthday and for the entire week leading up to the day he gave me a card every day. I knew he was going to propose when the card I opened on my birthday had a bride and groom on the front. He made me a photo album and every photo had a caption next to it, but the last spot had an empty photo and the caption read "The day you said yes."

What made you choose your venue and theme?

We knew we wanted to get married close to our neighborhood in Chicago and love industrial buildings. Prior to getting engaged I had my eye on the venue we ended up being married at, Ravenswood Event Center. It was our first an only venue sighting, we booked it on the spot and they happened to have had a cancellation for that fall so we got married 6 months after getting engaged.

We'd love to know more about your experience in working with SuitShop.

We found SuitShop through our wedding planner, Suzanne from Couture Events Chicago. We knew we wanted our wedding party to be able to buy a suit they could wear again rather than renting and the pricepoint was hard to beat. We ordered AJ a navy blue suit along with fabric swatches of the other colors. The suit fit perfectly out of the box which sealed the deal. The team was great to work with and the guys only had pleasant things to say about the experience.

Do you have any advice for marriers to be?

Decide what is important to you on your day and make it happen. For us, our main goal was to have a good time. We wanted to eat great food, drink, dance, and be surrounded by people we truly loved. That to us was way more important than flower arrangements and table settings and in the end we had a blast and so did our guests.

Thank you so much for the amazing suits! We could not have been happier with them.
