Chi-Town

Last Thursday my husband and I left town to visit Chicago!!

We traveled to Chicago for the wedding of a great friend of the family (and the couple has also recently moved to Charlotte... yay!). My in-laws also attended the wedding so it was great seeing them as always! I haven't been to Chicago since I was a girl, and really all I remembered was it being cold and riding the train that goes above the city.

This time around it was still cold (and very windy!!) but we had a great time... it's a BEAUTIFUL city. Everywhere you turn there is marble and granite... yum.

Here are a few pictures from our weekend!

The wedding was GORGEOUS!! The reception was held at the Palmer House. It was the most elegant wedding I had ever been to.

  1. Beautiful photos! I love cities right at the water's edge - skyscrapers contrasted against the waves is so lovely!

  3. I'm glad you liked Chicago!!  I've lived there my whole life and can't really see myself anywhere else...though the winters do get a little rough.  But I suppose I don't mind that much, I did get married in Chicago, in the middle of the winter.

  5. Thank you! This isn't much help but I found it at a local consignment store! It's a size 2 and I'm normally a size 6.. but I loved it so much I squeezed myself into it (thanks to the flow-y skirt!). Although in some pictures I looked a little pregnant haha! The brand is Donna Morgan.

  10. I looove Chicago! Half of my family is from there and I try to go at least once a year to visit. This is THE perfect time of year to go. Unlike the South, they actually get a nice long Fall season :).
