Clovers, Green Beer and the Luck of the Irish

From start to finish, Carly and Dermot’s wedding was filled with festive shamrockery and Northwest side Irish pride. They started off with vows at St. Paul of the Cross, continued on to the Chicago Riverwalk for photos and then headed over to Bottom Lounge for bagpipers and green beers. Today, they celebrate their first anniversary. Slainte!

Dreaming of Summer in Chicago

Chicagoans live for summer in this city. As we drag through the last month or so (fingers crossed!) of winter, these images from #allisonwilliamsphotography reminded me (again) of why this city rules. Erin and Stephen said, “I do”, at chic West Loop venue Savage Smyth last July. The decor was timeless and understated in hues of white, green and purple. We especially loved their sparkler send-off with the skyline in the background.
