Hillary and Ben met at the University of Kansas. After 4 years of long distance dating, they finally got to live in the same city! 8 years after they started dating, Ben took Hillary to the rooftop of the building where she works in Chicago, and overlooking the city he asked her to be his wife. She said yes, and we’ve been wedding planning with this fun-loving couple ever since! Since Ben is a Birmingham native, they decided to tie the knot in his hometown. One of the fun details of their wedding is that it’s actually on their 9th dating anniversary. How cool will it be for them to not even have to change their anniversary?! This wedding is especially exciting because so many of Hillary and Ben’s family and friends will be joining us from out of state to celebrate these two…and enjoy their first trip to the South! We can’t wait to show these folks what Southern hospitality is all about! One a recent trip to Alabama, these two met up with their photographers, Eric and Jamie for a fun engagement session and Ben’s parent’s house in Mountain Brook. We love how special their engagement session location is. Check out some of our favorites below! Hillary and Ben, we can’t wait to celebrate you two this weekend!
