Amelia and Shane were married earlier this summer at Greenhouse Loft and we can’t stop looking at their photos! It was such a beautiful summer day in Chicago and you can almost feel the love between them!

Amelia is such a stunning bride and she rocked that flower crown! The couple and their wedding party got ready at the Le Méridien Chicago Oak Brook.

How We Met

We met nine years ago at Elmhurst College when we were both in the same Political Science class and after talking one day after class, about bands and travel and languages, we were totally hooked! After getting through college and taking several amazing trips and getting our first our first apartment together, Shane proposed in Manhattan on our seven year anniversary :)

About the Wedding

Our wedding was so great, we had so much friends and family that traveled from all over the place to come and celebrate with us. My matron of honor and her husband came from Norway to be with us!

A Fun Memory

Also, thanks to Hanna and AJ and our limo breaking down in the York Forest Preserve, we were able to get some of my favorites photos in the city including ones of Shane and I in Ipsento Coffee. Those are definitely going on our Thank You cards :)

The Ceremony

One of my favorite things was we did a hand-fasting during the ceremony, which is an ancient Celtic tradition of "tying the knot". Neither of us are religious but we wanted something old and meaningful and so we thought it was perfect.
