Hey, remember that absolutely gorgeous styled shoot we did back in 2016? Well, that beautiful couple tied the knot for real back in April! And they happen to be great friends of ours, so Carolyn got to be a bridesmaid while Lauren and Kaitlin ran the show. 

Erin and Chase aren't just models though...they are hilarious, kind, generous, and know how to party. It is such a great honor to be trusted with a friend's big day, and this was no exception. They had a lovely ceremony, performed by Erin's father, delicious food by Antique Taco, and a dance party that didn't stop until the lights were on. The biggest Cubs fans, the sweetest loves, the most beautiful of couples, it was an incredible day that we won't be forgetting any time soon!

Congratulations, E&C! We love you so much, and wish you the most happiness in the world!

What an absolutely wonderful couple. We loved Laura and Max's book themed wedding! They pulled all of their details off so well, and it was absolutely gorgeous. From their touching ceremony in the gorgeous Bond Chapel, to the homemade challah on every table from the MOG, and the absolutely packed dance floor, these two had a wonderful sunshiney day. And if the love in the room is any indication of their future, these two cuties are going to have a very long, happy life together.
