Erik and Cara were wed in the greater Chicago area this fall — way to go cuz! His family is from Rochester but as Wheaton grads working Tingdale House publishers, Chicago was ideal. In exploring the local options, I stumbled across a gem and chose to liberate the couple from the confines of their church to an interactive environment of an old pioneer village nearby. The old single-room school house was especially fun as Erik’s mom is a teacher and the wedding party got into the roll-play. Dunce’s hat in the corner, rulers, spelling lesson, chalk boards; we had a blast and a great tension release! Enjoy.
