Can I let you in on a little secret? I've never been to Chicago. Ever. With all the lovely weddings coming out of that windy city, I've been dying to pay that pretty place a visit. Well this very weekend, I am doing just that. My only regret is that I won't be attending a soiree as stylish as this one by Jason & Anna Photography - that I won't get to sit in those pretty ceremony chairs or twirl around with my mister in that lovely ballroom. However, I do plan on spending quite a bit of time drooling over the full gallery during my travels, so it will almost, almost feel like I was there. See so much more here.
From the Bride & Groom... We had the wedding of our dreams on June 23 at Room 1520 in Chicago. The day was captured perfectly by our friends at Jason & Anna Photography. We planned our wedding to include all of our favorite things in our favorite city, surrounded by our friends and family. Anthony and I met in the Omaha airport six years ago when our flight was delayed. We built our life together in Chicago, where we both were living at the time, although I am from Arizona and Anthony is from Boston. Anthony proposed to me with a surprise trip to Paris five years later, and we found out we would be moving to Los Angeles immediately after the wedding because of a job promotion for him. We decided to feature in our wedding the places we love, with a venue that showcased the skyline of Chicago, a guest book that was a vintage poster of Chicago, a Paris-inspired sweets table and table names of places we have traveled with together. We included a whiskey bar, a photo booth, vintage plates and decor, signature cocktails and beautiful lighting that brought the concept together. We were able to personalize every detail of the wedding, and it was amazing to see it all come together so perfectly. We want to thank all of our vendors for being so delightful to work with and making our dream wedding come true!
