I am so excited to finally launch a blog my friends Hanna and Linn and I have been working on this Summer. It's called xo Chicago, it's a place for us to blog about our different culinary adventures around Chicago! This is a great place to eat and we're always hearing about new favorites, so this blog was kind of an excuse for us to get together and discover all the wonderful eats this city has to offer!

Join us on our food journey! You can also follow us on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter!

A big thank you to Christy at Hello Gem for making us our gorgeous logo! Wish I could get married again so she and her team could put together a beautiful wedding for me!

Hello! I'm back and inspired! I've been wonderfully busy traveling, shooting and getting obsessed with Game of Thrones (judge me if you must). I'd like to make a better effort at sharing the weddings I shot here. I am so lucky to work with the sweetest, most loving and creative clients! Each wedding is filled with individuality and so many personal touches and I'd like to share those!

Carly and Ryan had a small, intimate backyard wedding. Carly's parent's backyard was a beautiful place for the occasion. I loved all the table settings, they were all different! I was so excited to shoot all the little details of their day, which was so laid back and elegant.

Some of my favorite things included the cute tie that Carly made Ryan, the bruschetta bar (genius!), the fact that they took time to visit their favorite little spot for a bloody mary with their friends, and how much Ryan & Carly enjoyed themselves with their family and friends.

I have such a rad job! I'm so thankful I have a job that gives me a glimpse of the love two people have for each other!
