It's a tale as old as dating apps. Dave and Allie both swiped right, Allie made the first move (thanks, Bumble!), but Dave took the offline date lead and planned their first date at a wine bar in Lincoln Park in January 2017. Both took it as a good sign that it was a couple hours later than they expected when they finally got up to leave the bar. After just a few dates, they both knew something special was brewing, and by Valentine's Day, Dave asked Allie to join him for his friend's wedding in the Cayman Islands (thanks, Bruners!). Allie is incapable of refusing tropical vacations, so it's a good thing she was really into Dave. Since then, Allie & Dave have been hopping around the country together, going on various (mostly wedding-related) adventures, and using Dave's wingspan to get great selfies in front of historic landmarks. In October, back at home in Chicago, Dave recreated some of their most meaningful date moments and asked Allie to marry him over the Chicago river. (She said yes.)
Please share any dietary restrictions/concerns in your RSVP notes - thank you!
Come by to say hello and have a drink or two on the rooftop of The Pit, down the street from the hotel. If you're interested in delicious NC BBQ before drinks, stop in downstairs for dinner before heading up (you won't be able to order food upstairs).
