Indiana University grads Stephen Rooney and Allison Murphy, who met through mutual friends after moving to Chicago, wed this past fall at Revel Motor Row, the historic former home of the Illinois Automobile Club. Their 150 guests dined and danced in the space that once housed the club’s swimming pool. “DJ Kyle from Green Line did just an outrageously good job,” Rooney said. “He said … ‘I’ve never seen a group of people get on the dance floor so quickly.’ ”
Murphy, 30, wore her mother’s veil, which she had dyed with tea to match her ivory silk gown, and Rooney, 28, and his groomsmen bought suits from a family friend’s shop in his hometown of Mequon, Wisconsin. They gave their guests Uno decks as favors. “Whenever we host people over, somehow Uno always comes out,” Murphy said. Rooney works in technology sales at CDW and Murphy is an account supervisor at Leo Burnett. They live in Logan Square around the corner from Revolution Brewing, where they had their first date.
