Evan & Evan

Dunn - Munch Wedding

The Drake Oak Brook, Oak Brook, Illinois

Our Story

Our story begins in July 2017.  After finishing graduate school in Philadelphia, Evan D. landed a job in Chicago, moving to the place where he knew he'd start the next chapter of his life.  We met four days later.  Evan M. thought — regardless of the outcome — it would be a memorable story to talk about the time he went out on a date with someone who shared the same first name.  The rest, as they say, is history.  While it may mix up other people, having the same name is never confusing between us. It's just something else to add to the long list of things we share: our new home, our loving families, our sweet bulldog Maddie, and our love for one another. 

 

On August 16, 2020, on a windy summer day in York, Maine, Evan M. popped the question.  Evan D. said "yes" to the next several chapters of our story together — a story that begins on May 7th and ends with a happily "Evan" after.

A Few Words About COVID-19

  • To protect the health and safety of our guests — including older adults and others with conditions that place them at greater risk of severe COVID-19 illness — we are requesting that all attendees be fully vaccinated prior to our wedding date.  We believe this is a responsible decision aligned with public health recommendations for an event like ours.  However, we understand this is a sensitive issue for some and encourage anyone with questions to reach out to us.

  • We will enthusiastically welcome any and all (vaccinated) guests who are most comfortable wearing a mask at our wedding.

  • Anyone experiencing COVID-like symptoms on the day of our wedding should stay home.  We promise to be understanding and will try saving you a piece of cake!

  • The coronavirus pandemic is evolving and unpredictable.  We are closely monitoring the situation, appreciate your flexibility, and will communicate about any adjustments to our safety protocols if needed.  Check this site up until the wedding day for our guidance.

 

See You on May 7!

We can't wait to celebrate with you.
