Adam Bachert was visiting friends in Chicago for the weekend, and on Friday night they celebrated a birthday in Wrigleyville. When Adam spotted Meghan Sable across the room at the party, he asked one of Meghan’s friends to play his wingman. After being told that the cute guy in the booth by himself wanted to meet her, Meghan gave him a quick once-over. She agreed to go talk to him, sure that they’d chat for a few minutes and then part ways.
But as Meghan talked with Adam, she noticed just how easy going and genuine he was. They agreed to meet up on Sunday at a little cafe in Lincoln Park for brunch, and they quickly realized this relationship was meant for something more. They had dated for five years when they took a trip to Paris, France together. At the beginning of their trip, they went to the famous Pont des Arts bridge to lock away their love, throwing the keys in the river below. On the last night of their trip, they returned to the bridge to see if they could find their lock among the thousands clipped to the bridge rails. When Adam shouted, “I found it!” Meghan hurried over, only to find him down on one knee, a ring in hand.
The pair married on April 24, 2014 in the bride’s home town, Alexandria, with a reception at River Farm. They fed their guests pistachio and strawberry cupcakes and seasonal beers and danced before all of their loved ones to “Our Song,” by Ellie Goulding.
