We are absolutely crazy about Christmas, and this winter themed shoot at one of the cutest Chicago-land venues totally hits the spot! Get your hot cocoa ready cause things are about to go overboard! ☕️☕️
This year has absolutely flown by. And let me tell you, if there is one thing I love – it IS Christmas! From the moment Beth, owner at Elements Preserved told me she was planning to open a venue I knew I wanted to get in there and showcase it for her. (Because Beth is seriously the best!) So, when I came out this past October, that is exactly what I did.
I am so glad we came up with this idea too! Elements Preserved is seriously one of the best naturally lit venues I’ve been to in awhile. So for us, it only made sense to capitalize on the bright walls, natural light and exposed duct work. Not to mention they have some absolutely stunning vintage pieces!
Knowing some other really talented vendors didn’t hurt either! Janet Gallagher‘s florals never fail. In fact they always go above and beyond any expectations. Combine that with my gorgeous friend Tessa and Meghana‘s hair + makeup talent! Gah!! ❤️😍
