Virtual Event Details

All of the Love

We would love nothing more than to celebrate in person with all the people we love and cherish, since we are required to limit our in-person guests, we would love nothing more than for you to join us virtually. Time: 6pm (cst) Where: Eventlive - evt.live/sivtoka/grace-keith-wedding (copy/paste this link) What's going on: Please join us for the ceremony and then raise a glass together for a few speeches to follow. Please join for some or all. We will most likely go from 6:00 -6:30pm and then pick back up around 7:30 for another 15-20 mins. Any time you are able to celebrate and join us would mean the world.

Swipe Right for Love: A Modern Day Love Story

The Fateful Meeting April 2019

While we both were living in Chicago, Keith in the South Loop and Grace in Lincoln Park. We had both decided to try our hand at the dating app, Hinge, with the hopes of swiping right on a promising date but more importantly hoping we would find our person out there. To keep the story short ... we started talking, within a week went on our first date, then second and third and within 2 weeks, the app was deleted and we were officially a couple...we both knew this was forever. And so the story continued... we quickly realized our mutual unhinged love for pizza, live music, books, and adventure. And we began building a life together filled with travel, keeping ourselves active, time with friends and family, lots and lots of music, and taking in all we love about Chicago.

The Proposal

A Magical Start to 2020

On January 4, 2020, on a freezing cold night, Keith had planned a proposal on the 11th street bridge in Grant park overlooking the skyline. Enticing Grace with a holiday light display (non-existent) before an evening at our favorite (and weekly visited restaurant) Victory Tap. After the amazing engagement that was so magically caught on camera and video... Keith surprised Grace again, with her friends and family awaiting their arrival at dinner. The night was magical and so special.

The Wedding Plan

April 24, 2021

Originally we had planned a beautiful fall 2020 wedding, excited to get married the same year we got engaged. Due to, well 2020, we have pushed our wedding back to April 2021, with a much smaller and more intimate evening planned with a much smaller in-person guest list. Because we can't imagine celebrating without so many important people to us, we will have a live virtual ceremony and raising a glass together: evt.live/sivtoka/grace-keith-wedding We are both beyond excited to get to celebrate our love and life together surrounded by our family and friend both physically and virtually.
