Recipe 15: Sunday Wedding
This is one of the many recipes that Aaron and I want to share with you. We are overjoyed for you to come with us on our journey as we put together different concoctions and laugh together (all while hoping to not burn our apartment down). Please enjoy these recipes as much as we have. We welcome you to a small, but intentional, part of our lives.

What You’ll Need
- Fancy Clothes
- A full tank of gas
- E-Z Pass
- A defensive driver (Chicagoland driving stresses me out)
- Your significant other
- Somewhere to go (in this case, a wedding)
- Old college friends
- Good food
How We Did It
1. Prepare that morning for the drive
- Fill up your gas tank.
- Prepare gluten free snacks just in case.
- Remember you are switching time zones (hooray for an extra hour of getting ready!).
2. Get fancy
- Heels are optional — shoot for comfort, everyone will be looking at the bride (stop worrying).
- Wear that dress that you’ve been dying to show off.
3. Remember at the last minute that your E-Z Pass needs updating (toll roads for the win).
4. Drive in crazy Chicagoland traffic.
- Huge shoutout to my sweet husband for his defensive driving skills.
5. Arrive at the most beautiful venue.
6. Watch your friends get married.
- Cry at how beautiful everything is.
- Be encouraged by their love and support of each other.
7. Find out that you’re sitting with college friends for the reception
- Catch up, laugh, and be encouraged.
- Eat amazing food (be incredibly thankful to the catering staff for making GF modifications).
8. Watch an incredible first dance between the bride and groom.
9. Leave before you can dance — that time change is a bummer coming back.
10. Reminisce about going on your first date with your husband two years ago on that exact day.
A Final Note
Although this week is not technically a ‘recipe’, Aaron and I are incredibly thankful for the intentional time that we got to spend with each other, with old friends, and that we got to celebrate a new marriage. Thank you to the sweet couple for including us in your day. We couldn’t be happier for you two — may God bless you and keep you.
