"We had our first kiss playing spin the bottle at my parents' house on Pine Street, and Mount Prospect is where we grew up together," Susie told the Huffington Post. "It just seemed more meaningful to be home for our big day and anywhere else."
The couple told the Post that Miles was the star quarterback of the football team. Susie turned him down many times before she finally fell for him during her junior year of college.
When Susie asked neighbors if they would be OK with a block party wedding, they all enthusiastically agreed. She said everyone immediately offered their help.
“Although we were so thankful, we weren’t surprised. That’s Pine Street,” Susie said.
Neighbors helped make the center pieces and the wedding runner for the ceremony.
Wedding photos show Susie and Miles standing in their neighborhood street as they said their vows, with lights strung above their heads.
Even their wedding photographer was impressed with the touching and meaningful venue.
"If I could sum up yesterday in one word it would be 'deep,'" photographer Lindsey Kay wrote on Facebook the day after the July 30 wedding. "Family and friends that love and support each other is exactly what life is about and EXACTLY what yesterday was about."
