The Couple
Jim, the U.S. chief restaurant officer of McDonald’s USA, met Carl, a psychotherapist, through an online dating site. The couple was married legally in California and then joined friends and family a few weeks later for an unforgettable Chicago wedding celebration.

The Details
Planner Frank J. Andonoplas oversaw the vision for Jim and Carl’s celebration, which included calla lilies from Anthony Gowder Designs.

The Party
The evening began with Champagne and then wrapped up with a late-night meal of cheeseburgers and McNuggets courtesy of McDonald’s, naturally.
