Liz + Colin ~ ARTango Bistro Wedding ~ Unique Chicago Wedding Venues

Liz and Colin are two of the most awesomely down to earth, yet somehow totally beautiful, intelligent, stylish and funny people we’ve had the pleasure to get to know through this crazy business! If they weren’t so nice you’d kind of want to punch them for being so beautiful and smart. 😉 haha. When I first met with them I just knew their wedding would be as unique and amazing as they are – and I was right!

From their gorgeous dried floral bouquets, to the ladies’ mix and match little black dresses for bridesmaid dresses, to their delicious family style dinner – it was all perfectly Colin & Liz! Oh and let’s not forget that they included the dinosaur love story, “A Lovely Love Story” as a reading in their ceremony (which I happened to give James when we first started dating with personalized captions and all)!! LOVE.

All in all the day was just SO much fun, laid-back, emotional, beautiful, and topped off with delicious food and one crazy dance party to end it! That’s my kind of wedding! 🙂 And now these two love birds are celebrating in Ireland and I’m living vicariously through their Instagrams, thankyouverymuch. 🙂

Liz and Colin ~ Thank you so much for being so, SO amazing and wonderful to work with!! I hope these photos capture the awesomeness that was your wedding day – from the funny, goofy sides of each of you – to the emotional moments… I hope it takes you back to that beautiful day, always. I’m imagining you two sitting at a cozy little pub in Ireland with free Wifi, sipping on some tasty beer while going through these photos (so you better not disappoint me by not living out that vision)! 😉 Enjoy the rest of your #Fitzmoon and we’ll see you kids when you get back, because we’re taking you up on that invite for grilled food and doggie play date! 😉 XOXO! Christy & James


Oh did these two have me in tears!

LOVE this set below that James captured!

Liz!! Just. Stop. 🙂

And then we headed to ARTango Bistro for the wedding and it. was. fabulous! Such a beautiful and unique space!

I saw this frame James captured while culling the wedding and I squealed. YES.

And then Colin’s grandparents, who have been married 60 years, slow danced like this. And I cried.
