Chicago Couple's Luxury Destination Wedding | Cape Cod, Mass.
Matt & Kaitlin
It took Kait and Matt over a year and a half to find the perfect timing for a first date. Despite her friends trying their hardest to get them to see each other, it took the power of social media, a Super Bowl Party, and a mutual love for miniature animals to realize they had each found their person.
Kait recalls being swept off her feet from date #1. There was a Valentine’s Day steak dinner, a Slim Jim Bouquet and a dive bar dance party. Matt even managed to stomach particularly delicious broccoli to impress her. Little did she know, just that small act alone proved she was someone special.
One of their annual excursions was to Kaitlin’s favorite place, Cape Cod. A true highpoint for Kaitlin and her family. They have been spending summers on the cape since she was a kid. She loved it so much that she had always dreamed of being married there. Sharing these little aspirations with Matt just seemed fitting and when they started dating, they would start each trip by staying at her favorite resort, The Wequassett before meeting up at her family’s home. In 2017, Matt completely surprised her with a wedding proposal at Sunset on the grounds of the Wequassett overlooking the bay. They enjoyed champagne and dinner at Atlantic 28 with a sunset view. He even had pre-arranged to meet with a wedding coordinator at the Wequassett the following morning!
