Emily and Andrew had the quintessential Memorial Day weekend wedding! Absolutely perfect weather, which is such a gift in Chicago. Not only did we have gorgeous weather, but it was such a stunning day visually as well. The bride was very hands on with the design of the wedding and all of the details, and they had some really unique touches. Two of my favorites were the champagne wall at cocktail hour and the couple’s grand entrance with light up balloon wands (you definitely need to scroll down to see this).
These two live in California, but grew up in Chicago area, so it made sense to have a hometown wedding, especially since they have been together since high school. I’m so thankful they made that decision, and that I was able to be a part of their day.
Lastly, I can’t end this post without giving a shoutout to Hailey from The Simply Elegant Group – she was such a blast to work with!
