Hitched: Meredith and Brad’s Architectural Artifacts Wedding – Part 1

Our last wedding of 2011 was Meredith & Brad’s wedding at Architectural Artifacts, one of the most unique venues in Chicago! (If you haven’t been to AA, you definitely should, it’s open daily to the public!) The husband and wife team of Pen Carlson were photographers on my *I WANT TO WORK WITH THEM* list for ages, and they did not disappoint! Asrai Garden created lush florals in shades of white and silver with pops of red.

Meredith was a stunning bride, rocking the bright red lips and an old Hollywood glam look… not everyone can pull that off, but she certainly did! Meredith and Brad were such a relaxed and gracious couple, we loved helping them pull together their wedding which was a wonderful reflection of their warm personalities … what a great way to end our 2011 wedding season!
