Hitched: Lauren & Austin’s Rookery Wedding 2

See Part 1 of Lauren & Austin’s Rookery wedding!

This may be one of the most unique vantage point shots I’ve seen!

Is there even any question why this is of my favorite Chicago wedding venues?

Mmmm, sweet cupcake-y goodness from Lauren & Austin’s favorite bakery (and mine too!), Sweet Mandy B’s.

Congrats, Chris & Donna! Thanks for My Louboutins!

I am SUPER excited for Chris & Donna’s wedding tomorrow! Why all the special excitement? Because they are amongst our closest friends… in fact, my husband is the Best Man! Chris and Borton have been BFFs since they were like 11 or 12 years old, and we’re so excited to share this day with them. And we can’t wait to celebrate with a roomful of our closest friends!

I think this picture from their engagement shoot perfectly encapsulates Chris and Donna:

And as a little extra sumthin’ sumthin’ to show their appreciation for my help… they surprised me with the most extravagant gift I could ever (or never!) have imagined!!!!! They said they wanted to get me something I would never buy for myself. And boy, were they were right… I could never have pulled the trigger on these babies.

Oh Yes… My Very. Own. Pair. of. CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTINS.
