October 4, 2013 | Café Brauer

Cheryl wowed in a Jim Hjelm gown from Dimitra’s Bridal Couture, and Barrett looked dashing in a classic Ralph Lauren Black Label tux as they made their getaway in an authentic DeLorean, which was a surprise for Barrett based on his favorite movie growing up, Back to the Future.

The Couple
It all began at a wedding of mutual friends, where Cheryl bribed a fellow bridesmaid so she could be paired up with Barrett, one of the groomsmen. They hit it off instantly, and he popped the question in 2012 while decorating their Christmas tree.

The Details
Clementine Custom Events spotlighted the city to the guests, who were mainly from out of town, with a rehearsal dinner on the Chicago River and Chicago hot dogs by Blue Plate as a late-night snack.

The Party
The reception kept spirits high with energizing tunes courtesy of Ken Arlen Orchestra and fun photo ops provided by ShutterBooth.
