North Avenue Beach, Chicago, Illinois | A (Windy City) Chicago Elopement

I swear the temps dropped 20 degrees the instant we were on the lake, at North Avenue Beach.

That’s Chicago weather for ya, I guess.

Marisa + Tanner braved the windy city for the sweetest Chicago, IL elopement!!

The temps were skin-numbing, the ground was a sheet of ice, and the sun was slowly dropping inch by inch.

But that didn’t stop us from jamming to music on the beach, laughing till we couldn’t breathe, and allllll the cute as heck PDA!

The hair for this elopement was done by Emily Rae Hair, the dress designer is BHLDN, the signage is done by Ink Love and Paper, and the floral was created by the amazing Ashland Addison Floral Decor.

Here’s to cold Chicago days still being some of the most beautiful days, and here’s to beautiful Chicago elopements (planning a Chicago wedding or elopement? I’d love to hear more ->)
