St. Charles Tent Wedding

Friday, November 30th, 2018

Happy Friday, Chicago!

For today’s blog, we decided to take a trip back to memory lane! Back when the flowers were still blooming, greenery was popping out of every corner, back to when it was summer time!

This magnificent tent wedding took place in the suburb of St. Charles. We particularly remember this day, because it was one of the hottest summer days Chicago had seen in a long time. However, the flowers stayed strong and we could have not been happier with the outcome of this beautiful, one of a kind décor.
