The wedding of Kristen Hines and Patrick Gannon on Saturday, July 23, 2022 at The Indiana Roof Ballroom was a genuine celebration of their love and friendship. The two met while they both worked at Yelp in Chicago, and Patrick was Kristen’s boss! It was love at first sight for both of them.
The two shared a 700 sq. ft apartment at Marina Towers (including the outside balcony) for two years, and that was a true test of their love for sure!! Kristen always dreamed of a fairy tale wedding, and the Indiana State House and Indiana Roof Ballroom were perfect backdrops for a fairy tale wedding and romance!
They had a magnificent sparkler exit; the band did not take one break so there were three straight hours of dancing and a full dance floor! Kaitlin Pennington, Maid of Honor, broke tradition by making her speech more of a “drinking game”! Every time she said “Pat”, the groom’s name, the guests had to say “Cheers” and drink! Kristen and Patrick are a very fun couple and this was fitting for their special day!
