On June 18th, we said, "I do" in a vacant parking lot located in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood. We had a huge turnout and can't say thanks enough to all of our amazing friends and family who helped us make the day amazing and worked their butts off to make the day possible!!
We can't say enough wonderful things about our photographer, Clarissa Bonnet of I Luv Photo. Anyone out there gettin' hitched? Call her up! I Luv Photo is also a husband and wife team who usually shoot together. Their creative approach seamlessly captures every last moment!
