Ashley & Rhett // Wedding at The Peninsula

Ashley & Rhett, who hail from Laguna Beach, CA decided to have a destination wedding in none other than Chicago, IL. I’m not gonna lie, at first I thought that sounded like a funny idea. I’ve been to Laguna Beach. It’s amazing! A destination in its own right. But then I remember just how awesome the great Windy City really is and how, sadly, I have been taking it for granted as of late. In the end, I had to agree with Ashley & Rhett. Chicago is a pretty incredible place to have a wedding! And despite the crazy Chicago heat and humidity, this adorable duo still managed to look absolutely fantastic on their big day! I had a great time getting to know them when they came to Chicago for their engagement session this spring and an even better time getting to see them interact with their dearest friends and loving family.
I was super excited to work with Five Grain Events on this  gorgeous wedding at The Peninsula hotel. They do an amazing job of making everything run smoothly. And Hello Darling transformed the ballroom with their incredible floral designs and decor!
