2012's 1st wedding

Our first wedding of 2012 was in January.  That already seems so long ago.  The mild winter and 80 degree days in March make it difficult to even remember what snow in Chicago looks like.  But this wintry celebration was perfect for the season.  Thank you so much to Avery House for the beautiful images!!

The bride wore emerald green.  We love that!

The ceremony & reception were held at Spiaggia.

Congratulations to Kim & Derek!

Leaping

It's Leap Day, and the word "leap" is sticking out today.  The strides we've made (especially in the last few years) are large & long.  Although sometimes tiring, we're so very proud of all our work and so very grateful for your support.  Thank you!!!

In other news, here is a beautiful Chicago wedding from this past November.  When I met Anna, I thought she was a designer.  Her ideas were so beautiful & well thought out.  Mix-matched metallics & crystal embellishments contrasted with soft blooms and deep textures.  Enjoy!

Anna's bouquet, above, is rich in texture.
