I wanted to share every single little detail about how beautiful our day was and how much fricking fun we had. I want to relive it again and again and again.

I remember the first day of our honeymoon thinking how life doesn’t get much better after the high of your wedding day. Being surrounded by everyone you love so much and then it’s over. However, every day since September 20th has been the best day ever. Being married to Dave has been the greatest gift and looking back at these photos and remembering that we started married life with the biggest smiles and the most grateful hearts – that’s pretty great. And remembering the speeches and dances and hugs and tears that were filled with so much love. I will forever cherish these photos and this day.

I have detailed all of our vendors below and instead of writing rave reviews about each one {because I would and this post would be obnoxiously long} I’m just going to say that if you are getting married in the Chicago area, I can’t recommend any one of these amazing companies enough. Our day was a dream thanks to them and in large part to my beloved wedding planner, Nicole, of LK Events. I love you, Nicole! From the food, the decor, the venue, the band, the photographers, the videographers, the stationary, the calligraphy – every single detail was over the top perfect. My parents and I still get calls from family and friends asking for names of our vendors because they were above and beyond amazing. Thank you thank you thank you to all of you {if you’re reading} from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you for patiently scrolling through all of these photos! I hope this makes you feel like you know me a little bit better and reminds you that this computer screen is just a screen and that behind it is so much more.

  18. It’s become easier to deliver cash now than in the past.
    Delivering cash online is a fast and easy process that frequently leads to
    cash coming fast as well. Lots of people desire to learn how to online money transfer money to Europe to Ireland.

  19. Your pictures are gorgeous! Where was your cake topper from? It is perfect!

    1. It actually was handed down to me from my grandmother, to my parents, and now my husband and I! A special family tradition. 🙂
