Post wedding photo session
Earlier this week, I showed you Kelly and Scott's beautiful Italian Restaurant Wedding by Monika Thorpe Photography.  The wedding day was a blur so the couple decided to meet on a Friday evening for a fun after wedding photo shoot in Chicago. Scott had purchased his suit and sported the ensemble once more, sans his lapel boutonniere. Kelly wore her lovely "after-party" dress. The pictures were taken at various places in Chicago, including the Miracle Mile. Here is the gorgeous shoot!

Small and unique wedding favor ideas
Your reception table may not have enough room for favors so you may need small favors for the table. I've rounded up three great ideas for small and unique favor ideas. The small favors can be put in boxes by Jaclyn Peters Designs. There are so many beautiful boxes to choose from. The image below shows a gorgeous display of the boxes. 

 
 
Bride and groom
Kelly and Scott had a beautiful city wedding in the most intimate venue, which also happened to be their favorite Italian restaurant, Trattoria Gianni, in Chicago, Illinois.   Monika Thorpe Photography did an excellent job of capturing this beautiful September wedding.  The day began at the W Hotel where Kelly and her bridesmaid got ready. The first look photos also took place there. After the ceremony, the bridal party gathered at the Nature Boardwalk of Lincoln Park. It's a perfect location to incorporate a wedding, nature and the city of Chicago's architecture. I love the bride's blue shoes...nice addition to this lovely wedding!

DIY Wedding Bouquet
It seems a strange inconsistency; the rational, economically savvy couple who watch their money like hawks and spend wisely then decide to get married – and all hell breaks loose in their bank account. Ten minutes of research will uncover stories of the man and wife who opened their purses and wallets and spent a year’s pay on a day with reckless abandon.
