The Couples Who Get Married on a Weekday

Other couples find themselves attached to a particular wedding date. Mary Nisi, the owner of Toast & Jam, a Chicago-based DJ company, has seen an increase over the past five years in the number of weekday weddings she and her colleagues have DJed for. A number of those couples, she recalls, chose the day of the wedding because they wanted a particular date for their future wedding anniversaries. Certain types of couples, she notes with a laugh, love getting married on purposefully spooky days, such as Halloween. “Whenever there’s a Friday the 13th, those are usually huge dates to get married,” she says. “They’re quirky people—like their cake will be black, or whatever.” (Nisi has also witnessed firsthand the effects of work schedules on weddings: Because Chicago has a vibrant theater scene, stage actors and other theater workers, whose days off are traditionally Mondays, often book Toast & Jam’s services for Monday weddings.)

Classic Wedding at the University of Chicago Quadrangle Club

Tyler and Devon celebrated their marriage at the historical Quadrangle Club at the University of Chicago. Their wedding was full of personal details, from the guestbook- 52 dated envelopes to be opened each week during their first year of marriage- to the hand-designed escort cards, programs, and menus. Their pup Bishop (the ice breaker from their first conversation!) made a special appearance in this emotional and fun-filled day captured by Ingrid Bonne Photography!
