David Parker and Dale Roberson were married on August 11, 2018. The ceremony took place on the terrace overlooking the Chicago River cityscape of the Wyndham Grand Chicago Riverfront Hotel. The weather was perfect and the couple's dog, Zoe acted, as ringbearer. The wedding reception immediately followed, featuring a lounge reception in the hotel's Penthouse Ballroom, featuring two sets of different passed small bites and a risotto and carving station. A decadent dessert buffet featuring French macarons and other French pastries followed later. Guests danced the night away against the stunning city views.
