Abandoned Chicago Engagement

I love to bike! You might be asking yourself why I feel the need to mention it when I should be talking about Kristin & Ryan. Well, first off what's with the attitude! You don't even need to read this, you can skip the whole thing and just look at the photos. More importantly, I love to bike. It's how I find all of these locations. This spot particularly came out of no where. I had never heard of it, never seen a single photo of this place. Then one day I was biking to Indiana, and there it was! I can't believe this spot has remained a secret for so long. 

I just happened to mention this craziness to Kristin and Ryan, and they loved the idea. We spent hours trespassing in this old and decrepit steel mill and this is what we came away with!

This wedding has an absolutely crazy story attached to it. But it's not so blog friendly if you happen to be interested just ask! I also wanted to give Laura a big shoutout! She made so many of the awesome details for her wedding. She hand drew her invitations, she made the cake toppers, and she designed these awesome little cups of candy for her guests. This girl is seriously talented and I'm so glad that we were able to be there for her wedding day. On top of all of that, we even had an opportunity to work with some great people. Mike Hendzel of Henzel Productions worked video for the day and Sharokina of City Girl Just to name a few!

Ritz-Carlton Chicago Wedding | Adam & Arielle

First of all I know immediately that a wedding is going to be perfect when Joan over at Five Grain Events is involved! I swear she knows how to keep a wedding running on time better than anyone I've ever seen, and it doesn't hurt that she happens to be one of the nicest people I know. Arielle and Adams wedding at the Ritz Carlton in Chicago was just gorgeous! I could not have found a more hilarious bridal party if I tried. I knew that Arielle and Adam were perfect for each other but dear god when you mix a few drinks into their bridal party things got ridiculous in the best way.
