From Big City Bride... Michael Stagliano ABC's The Bachelorette star in 2009, Bachelor Pad 2 winner in 2011 and Bachelor Pad 3 in 2012 tied the knot in Chicago over Memorial Day weekend, exactly two years from their first moment together in Chicago. Michael Stagliano and his beautiful fiancee Emily Tuchscherer's love is quite the fairytale. Chrissy Magliano of Big City Bride planned the wedding of their dreams at Galleria Marchetti, an enchanting venue. The outdooor ceremony was intimate and romantic. The couple shared their vows under a beautiful structure covered in soft white draping and flower petals lining the aisle. Cocktail hour followed in the courtyard. During this time guests signed Michael and Emily's one of a kind guest book. The couple asked each guest to help design art work for their home. Guests grabbed a bottle of spray paint and designed!

The reception moved into the tented area at Galleria Marchetti. The design was classic and elegant. The reception was full of fun surprise dances performed by the wedding party. Michael, Emily, Michael's twin brother (married to Bachelorette winner DeAnna Stagliano) and Emily's sister surprised guests with a dance to "Classic" by MKTO. Later, Michael and his groomsmen performed a surprise dance dedicated to Emily, which was a mix of songs showcasing Michael's breakdancing moves. Many Bachelor/Bachelorette alums were in attendance at the wedding including: Tenley Molzahn, Kiptyn Locke, Robby Descant, Ed Swiderski and Michael Stagliano’s twin brother Stephen Stagliano with his “Bachelorette” wife DeAnna Pappas.
