Detroit May Couple of the Month: Gina + Terry, Royal Park Hotel

Gina and Terry both lived in Chicago’s exciting South Loop neighborhood at the time they met.  Three years ago, Gina and Terry were both at a nearby restaurant in the neighborhood having dinner and drinks with friends.  Later in the evening they caught each other’s eye. Terry asked Gina if she would like to have a drink with him.  Of course, she said yes, and the rest is history!

Their courtship has been nothing short of traditional and romantic.  For their first date, Terry dropped off flowers earlier that day to Gina’s building so she would have something to remind her about the fun night ahead.  Each week Terry continued to bring flowers and eventually a “Monday night Flowers” tradition was established.  Come rain or shine and even different cities or while on vacation, Terry faithfully brings flowers to Gina every week. 

Both Gina and Terry had never been to Europe.  So in April of 2012 Terry surprised Gina with a trip to Madrid, Spain and Paris, France.  While Gina was hoping that a proposal would somehow be incorporated she didn’t want to get her hopes up.  However, her dreams did come true atop the Eiffel Tower where Terry purposed. 

Gina and Terry will both live together in the South Loop and will enjoy being newlyweds in the city!  They love to spend time with each other’s friends and families and plan to travel more once they are married.

Gina currently works as a Project Manager for a General Contracting company in downtown Chicago.  She works on exciting and interesting building and transit construction projects within the City of Chicago. 

Terry is an attorney for the City of Chicago.  He is the in-house counsel for the Department of Procurement.

Gina really enjoys mixing old, new, expensive and inexpensive and drawing inspiration from all over… not really any one place or era. Her theme for her June 1st, 2013 wedding is Traditional, Vintage and Romantic (with just a hint of modern!) with the colors fuchsia and ivory. The wedding ceremony will be held at Academy of Sacred Heart with the reception to follow at the beautiful Royal Park Hotel in Rochester Hills, Mi. Gina’s Dress is Emmaline by Rivini By Rita Vinieris and her shoes are by Vigotti Metis. She will be accessorizing with a Vintage blue Cameo ring (something borrowed and blue) from Terry’s Mom, vintage beaded clutch that was my great grandmothers and simple pearl earrings.   

Gina’s cousins will be serving as her brides maids and Terry’s Brother will be the Best Man, his best friend Jerry and Gina’s brother Tony are his groomsmen. The bridesmaids will be wearing BCBG Khloe Lace Cocktail Dresses and Kelly and Katie Casilda Pumps.

Congratulations on your engagement and we wish them many happy memories!
