Do you remember that ONE night that it snowed in Chicago last winter? We do. We were at Amy + David’s absolutely perfect winter wedding. You won’t want to miss this one…
Amy + David started their day getting ready at home with family and friends and taking some amazingly gorgeous first look shots on North Avenue Beach while they waited for the first snowflake to fall.
After photos, Amy, David, and their wedding party headed to Church of our Saviour for their ceremony. We loved everything about their wedding, including the girls’ prayer circle before heading down the aisle. (And Amy chowing down using a down coat as a bib!)
If you thought this wedding was impressive so far, just wait until you see what’s next. Holy wow. Amy + David (with a lot of help from David’s mom) put together some of the best DIY details we’ve seen in a long time. We were like, what if you did a hot chocolate bar? Boy did they deliver. Sheer delightfulness, complete with coffee cups collected by the couple for each guest to take home? Yaaaasss please!
And of course, the evening ended with just the right dusting of snow before guests headed home in the dark and snowy winter night. Sigh. It almost makes you miss winter (almost).
