CHICAGO — Love was in the air Sunday morning on the Magnificient Mile.
Under the arch of the iconic Wrigley Building, couple after couple said ‘I Do’ for the “Marriage on the Mie” event. Joe Kuechnmeister and Tula Georgopoulos told WGN they decided Michigan Avenue was the perfect place to exchange vows.
“Beautiful day. Beautiful weather. This is pretty much as optimal as it gets if you’re going to get married in downtown Chicago,” Kuechnmeister said.
Shaun Airey and David Gombert agreed that Sunday’s festivities were much better than getting hitched at a courthouse.
