The last time we walked these streets, it was cold and rainy. Hardly anyone was outside, and the people who did brave the cold and rain hurried from one building to the next. But this evening was not like last time. The sun reflected off of the skyscrapers, lighting up the downtown with beautiful, golden light. However, the real stars of the evening were not the skyscrapers, but instead were Ashley and Brett! They welcomed us in and showed us a side of Chicago we hadn't experienced yet, but we are so grateful that we got to spend the evening with them!
Even though an entire great lake separated these two as they grew up, they eventually found out after they met for the first time that they actually lived only a few blocks away from each other! One could say that that would have been enough to say that these two were meant to be together, but after spending the evening with them, we think it goes so much deeper than that. Ashley and Brett seem to have this special excitement about the things they enjoy, and as we walked and talked through the streets of Chicago, we found ourselves seeing more and more how these two literally "complete" each other; not to mention the fact that they just look so cute together!
Ashley + Brett, thank you so much for showing us a fantastic evening out on the town! From exploring the ale house where you had your first date to Josh trying his very best to getting that bridge shoot, we left Chicago feeling like we could come back and do it all over again with you two! October is coming up fast, which means that we get to spend the day with you again, but this time on our side of the lake. Until then, just make sure you keep practicing the advice our Uber driver gave us.
See you soon!
