if that title isnt confusing enough, allow me to explain. i just realized, while preping my pictures for the blog, that there are entirely too many. so you get the pleasure of 2 posts about chicago day 2. the first part is morning through pre-ceremony and the second part will be the ceremony and reception on… so saturday morning we woke up bright and early, ran downstairs to get our luggage (lost remember) and guess what??? not there so we got ready the best we could. which meant that i had to use hotel shampoo, conditioner and soap. and if you have never done that, trust me it is not pleasant. i felt like a wreck. luckily they had a hair dryer and i had bought hairspray the day before, but no makeup or hair straightner. i will never again take forgranted having my own beauty products on hand. you don’t realize how much certain things matter, especially certain things that are irreplaceable, like my charlotte russe eye shadow. so we made another trip to target for new clothes and makeup. also, you don’t realize how much replacing your makeup in one pop $$costs$$. so before heading over to tammy and mikes house for getting ready shots, we stopped by the hotel once more just to check and HOORAY! our makeup/hairstuff/hygiene bag was there! (but not the clothes) i was so excited. so i did my make up in the car, but no time for hair. but at this point, i am not complaining.
we got to mikes house and it was raining cats and dogs. no joke, we dont get that kind of rain in utah. so now for the getting ready shots….
tammy had an entire wall in her kitchen full of post it notes of stuff to do or done for the wedding. it was awesome!
wedding day checklist. very prepared!
we went downtown chicago before to a hotel called the palmer house. unfortunately we had to do them inside because of the rain, but tammy found this amazing hotel and i think they turned out awesome anyway!
seeing each other for the first time! i love their reactions!
i loved this elevator area. it was amazing!
thats is all for now. more from the ceremony and reception later! let me know what you think!!!!
