Terri and Adam – what can I say?! Incredible energy and just plain FUN! Remember their urban engagement session here? It’s not often that I hope for snow in Chicago but this time I begged mother nature and nada. At least my flight to Chicago was without delay, but it was sad to see all the snow from Snowpocalypse melted. It’s not everyday you have a couple that wants to play in the snow on their wedding day :) So instead we threw confetti, enjoyed Montrose Harbor and continued our adventure in the nooks and crannies of Architectural Artifacts antiques! Thank you Amy for your creative eye. Now let’s dive into this periwinkle blue and red color goodness wedding!
