BRIDGET & BRETTArt Institute of Chicago Engagement Session

Here’s a quick peek back at a fun holiday engagement session at the Art Institute of Chicago!

 

Let’s be honest: in Chicago, winter-time engagement sessions require a combination of creativity (in selecting a location), and bravery (for facing the inevitable cold weather.) Bridget and Brett were ready and willing to face the elements, but we decided to spend a little time first in the warmth of the Art Institute, wandering the galleries. It’s a pretty magical place on any day, but it was especially fun to see the interior and front all decked out for the holidays.

 

And then we took a brisk stroll through the nearby Lurie Gardens (where yours truly WIPED OUT just moments after warning B+B to watch out for the ice.) Oops. Luckily, neither photographer nor camera suffered any permanent damage.

 

Congrats, guys — can’t wait for your wedding in July!
