chicago weekend

Jim and I ventured to Chicago this past weekend for an extra-long weekend getaway for the wedding of our friends Alexa & Matt!

Once again, I think it’s best if the pictures tell the story!

Saturday

Wedding day!! It took a while to get from Wrigleyville to Park Ridge due to Comicon happening across the street from our hotel (I kid you not), but it was so much fun once we were there! Beautiful ceremony, great reception with awesome service, yummy food, good company and a great DJ!

on our way to the ceremony!

Our 6am flight was rough. I do not do well with motion, lack of sleep, and alcohol prior.

Noted. Maybe..
