This wedding, more than others, has a truly authentic vintage feel from it. The bride and groom really through through each detail, including down to where the bride would get ready. From Andon’s gown which has that old world feel, to the beautiful shots in the old Union Station downtown, and the dove release during the ceremony.

A perfect partly cloudy day, set in the foothills of Boulder. A beautiful wedding with earthly accents – it does not get more perfect and simple than this.

Oh, the warm sun, Chicago skyline and Lake Michigan. I never tire of Chicago shoots on the lake – especially when the couple is adorable and the bride-to-be is wearing a pop of color.

I have returned from a refreshing and fun work trip to Mexico (if you can call that work). And, in honor of that fabulous time I had with a dear friend, I bring you today’s Tuesday Shoesday from the lenses of bobbi+mike. Two incredibly sweet, down-to-earth and just truly fun photographers, who happened to capture what I consider to be the true Tuesday Shoesday post just in time for the heat wave that has moved in.

It’s fun to see a couple choose a venue that provides a few different backdrops – and the The Ivy Room in Chicago does just that. Cheryl and Chris chose the venue because it allowed their guests to enjoy the city scape and a beautiful outdoor space.

But the unique thing about Cheryl and Chris is not the fact that they dreamt up a wonderful fun and beautiful wedding. It’s the fact that they channeled their active lifestyle, by incorporating bicycles throughout the day. And, it’s the fact that they both ran a 10-mile race together the morning of the wedding!
