SOPHISTICATED WEDDINGS Presented by ey say the third time's the charm, and this was true for Stacy and Ilya. The two met as teenagers, went on a date in college and reconnected through the Russian Jewish community when they served as members on the same board in 2015. Stacy knew Ilya was something special when he brought a dog toy to their "second" first date at Sushi Bar in Broad Ripple for her dog, Wallace. After adventuring to Iceland (in the winter, no less), Aruba, Italy and across the United States, Ilya surprised Stacy with a proposal at the top of the Willis Tower in Chicago. e two fell in love with Newfields for their wedding venue; Stacy had gone there many times as a child and it held sentimental value for her. e groom's father officiated their March 30 wedding in front of 200 close family and friends, and guests enjoyed a specialty wedding cake made from Stacy's grandmother's recipe. Although candles and lush florals created a special ambience, a surprise spring snowstorm was a romantic touch. sl Photo by Erin Evangeline Burns Photo by Erin Evangeline Burns 102
