This story begins in 2005 when I (Howie) moved to Chicago to go to Moody Bible Institute. I wanted to test fate and not specifically request specifics regarding a roommate. So not knowing what to expect, I moved into school the first day of orientation and met my roommate, Chadwick Bacon. We got to know each other very well, from me introducing him to weird smelling chinese snacks to Chad introducing me to his love of Chicago pizzas and we both shared our love for movies. Like most college roommates we shared about the girls we were interested in and girls we liked. But one night as we laid in our bunk beds talking before we went to bed (as we did most nights), he mentioned to me this girl that he was interested in named Brooke. I thought it was nice, but didn’t think that much about it. However, as the weeks went along and as I saw them interact with each other, I had a feeling that this wasn’t going to be like a Gary Grobowski and Brooke Meyers story but more like a Harry Burns meets Sally Albright story.
So my once roommate went on to find a roommate for life. I couldn’t be more happy and excited to play a part in their wedding. Here are just the teasers from the wedding. Can’t wait to post more from this wedding! HC
