Magic was in the air as we played a historical wedding of a Baseball Love Story at Boulder Ridge Country Club in Crystal Lake, IL. Like the rest of the country and ALL of Chicago at the time, the wedding party had been anxiously watching the plight of Chicago’s perennial underdogs, the Chicago Cubs. They had finally made it to the brink of the World Series and the world’s population held a collective breath as both the Cubs and the newlyweds took destiny in their hands and made history. Needless to say, both the bride and groom were enormous sports fans.
A Baseball Love Story: How will it End?
The groom went so far as to request the staff to wheel in a television so we could all watch the drama unfold on the dance floor as the Cubs push to clinch the Series. And after decades of waiting, the Cubs were on their way to seal their place in history as the Bride and Groom cemented the night in their own historic fashion. By dancing the night away in a celebration for more than just love and commitment, Memories were truly made that night. We even managed to get everyone in a circl on the dance floor to see who had the funkiest moves. Was it the groom’s teenage son, or would grandpa shuffle them all away? Perhaps it was the lone Irish Dancer who tapped her way into a thunderous applause from the rest of the crowd.
The Cubs won, the youngsters had a dance-off with the elders, two beautiful people were brought together for life, and it couldn’t really get any better than that. I cannot say enough about how great a host and venue Boulder Ridge was to us and the guests. From classic architecture to eloquent design, this party room had everything to make this Baseball Love Story, a home run.
