Real Wedding: Stefanie Glickman and Jordan Stein

THE ENGAGEMENT
"Come Home” was the message on the final card. Stefanie Glickman had been receiving bouquets of purple roses all day at work. They were from her boyfriend Jordan Stein, and each one included a special note. The last one simply asked her to leave work early; when she did, she found a surprise she wasn’t expecting. “We live in a four-story townhome and as I followed the stairs up each level, candles spelled out ‘Will,’ then ‘You,’ and lastly, ‘Marry Me.’” On the rooftop, Jordan was waiting to propose.

THE WEDDING
But the surprises didn’t stop there. Jordan had arranged both families and friends to meet the couple for a celebration that day. Family and friends also had a big part in their wedding day months later, including Jordan’s sister, Lindsay Stein Cohen of Designer Event Chicago, who served as the planner. “I had a clear vision of how I wanted our wedding to be, and Lindsay was able to make my dream a reality,” said Stefanie. That included matching illuminated aisles to the gorgeous round white chuppah at the conservative Jewish ceremony and finding an orchestra who could play acoustic versions of modern music like Pearl Jam and the Dave Matthews Band. It was also important to include their loved ones during the ceremony, including appointing the Rabbi who officiated Jordan’s bar mitzvah and embedding handkerchiefs from each of their grandmothers into the bouquet. “It was incredible that almost every single person who had an important role in our lives was present in the same room.”
