They made it official: Brian Rody and Karsten Sollors had an outdoor wedding Sept. 25 in the Lincoln Park area of Chicago.

Rody and Sollors met in August 2015, on Facebook, and continued talking on Facebook and Skype. Rody wrote to Windy City Times, "I responded to a friend request from him with a note back telling him it was nice to meet him and after looking through some of his pictures I complimented him on his look and photos. Little did I know he would write back and on that 20th day of August I would meet the person that I would want to spend the rest of my life with.

"We met at the airport in Phoenix on Nov. 4, 2015 and started our life adventure together. ... We were instantly connected. I was in love with him from the very beginning and being with him in person was the most natural thing I've ever felt. Our love was so apparent to everyone we would come into contact with on our adventure in Sedona."

Sollors moved to Chicago permanently in February 2016. They were in Hawaii when they announced their engagement. As for the wedding ceremony, Rody added that it included "the pouring of sand from Germany; France; California; Vancouver and Kelowna, Canada; Wisconsin; and Chicago—with the pouring symbolizing the blending of the families and the new family that is created with our marriage."

The reception took place at Gilt Bar.
