Truth be told, I didn’t find the wind as much of a problem as the rain. The wind I can handle. The rain… makes it tough to get anything done. Initially we planned on visiting Chi-city for three nights; we extended that to five after being rained out two of the first three days.
Rain or shine, Chicago is an amazing city and a place I can’t wait to get back to. Heck, I’d consider moving there in a heartbeat if the weather was a little better; the people are laid back and welcoming, the beer is sensational, the sports are exciting and the food… well, the food is enormous. It’s going to take me a little while to get used to Midwestern portions. But I digress.
Megan and I had the chance to catch up with our pal Aaron Brown who is making a name for himself in the wedding photography business. If you have a moment you need to check him out. If you live in Chicago or the Northwestern Indiana area and you’re thinking about tying the knot you should give Aaron a ring. He’ll do right by you.
I still need to get through what’s left of Canada, Cleveland and Indy before I really get a chance to focus on Chicago, but until then, here’s a sneak peak at some of the work we did in The Windy City.
