As dusk fell upon the Redfield Estate in Glenview, Illinois, Arlyn & China met beneath a Gazebo on the grounds of the historic landmark. After their triumphant exit from their ceremony, the couple and their guests share cocktails outside the 1856 Kennicott House before retiring inside for their reception.
