This past weekend we had a quick 24 hours in Chicago to attend the wedding of one of my girlfriends (check out her bridal boat party here!). The wedding and bride were SO beautiful, I can't wait see all of her pictures!! The wedding was black tie optional, which in my mind is the best of both worlds: you get to dress up more than usual but don't have to go all-out black-tie formal. Since formal dresses tend to be really pricey, I rented mine from Rent the Runway and chose a couple of off-the-shoulder beauties.
I obviously did not wear sunglasses to the wedding. I have to be honest with you guys, I meant to take photos before the wedding but we ran out of time and had to take them when we got back to Seattle the following night, and I was feeling like total crap. Really bummed because I was looking forward to this post for a while!
