Mara and Mike were set up on a blind date by mutual friends and instantly connected over their shared passions of travel (they plan to kick off their marriage with a six month around-the-world backpacking trip!), good food, marathon running, and most importantly, friends and family. Five years later, during a trip to Puerto Rico Mike dropped a knee as the sun set over the ocean.
On February 11th, Misty Winter Photography was honored to document their wedding day!
Having a mutual love for the city of Chicago, Mara and Mike wanted to incorporate the "energy and romance" of the city into their big day. Italian restaurant Spiaggia, with its "world-class food" and a variety of stunning event spaces to choose from, was the ideal place for this couple to hold their special day.
