Lizzie and Mike: Salvage One, Chicago Wedding

Just because it is cold outside – bitterly cold, I might add – love waits for no one in Chicago.

I was lucky enough to witness the wedding of Lizzie and Mike last weekend at Salvage One in Chicago, IL. It was a special occasion for many reasons, one of them being that many of the guests had traveled from near and far to witness the adorable love between Mike and Lizzie. Although  Lizzie is originally Illinois, she now lives in Australia with the dashing Mike. They had friends travel from Australia, England and several other places to witness the exchange of their vows last weekend.

While I am a sucker for tradition, I truly enjoy a couple that is super relaxed and does not adhere to any rules. They helped each other get ready before the ceremony, and had a blast posing for pictures around the amazing Salvage One. Seriously, this place is incredible. It is chock full of amazing nooks and crannies that offer endless photographic possibilities.


These two were such a bundle of fun that they were up for just about anything. I don’t know if I have met a couple that were just so genuinely happy to be around each other as Lizzie and Mike. There is no doubt that these two will have a long, happy and fun-filled marriage – hopefully with tons of kids to share the goofiness with!


The event was just as relaxed and beautiful as their love. Thank you to Shanna Wolf Photography for inviting me to shoot this beautiful wedding. If you are in Madison, WI you should check out S. Photography and the talented Shanna Wolf.
