Julie Hilgendorf and Caleb Eplett, John G. Shedd Aquarium
“Caleb and I met at a track meet our senior year of high school. We went to different schools and were about to start colleges 300 miles away from each other in the fall; yet it didn’t stop us from spending every second we could together. We dated long-distance for four years before Caleb moved to Chicago after graduation. Eight years (and many fantasized wedding plans) later, we tied the knot!
“Since we are both from Michigan, having the wedding in our new city of Chicago was a big deal to our families. We wanted all of our 100+ out-of-town guests to feel like they were having a real Chicago experience and fall in love with the city just like we did.”
