HoneyBook Chicago Launch Party

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of attending HoneyBook’s Chicago Launch party!! Over the last few months, HoneyBook has been expanding to cities around the country so they can better serve us, the creatives. I love how dedicated HoneyBook is to helping their members, they are seriously so amazing (see how switching to HoneyBook gave me my life back!)

I made the 3 and 1/2 hour drive (without heavy traffic, YES!) down to Chicago for the big event. Chicago’s TuesdaysTogether leader, amazing wedding photographer, and my good friend, Elizabeth Nord, greeted me with open arms as soon as I arrived! We explored the city and she showed me some of her favorite spots. I enjoyed drinking delicious french press coffee and snacking on yummy macarons but my favorite part just had to be snuggling with Liz’s sweet little dog, Charlie! What a little cuddler and he seriously has stolen my heart!

When we arrived at the Launch Party hosted at Gallery 1028, the space completely blew me away! Storybook Weddings & Events and Ever After Planning did an incredible job transforming every inch of the place. All the vendors involved put in so much time and hard work to make sure everything looked amazing. What I loved even more than the space was catching up with some of my favorite people including Natalie Franke, The Siners, and the wonderful ladies from HoneyBook! I had so much fun and I even took a few iPhone snaps of the night to remember how beautiful everything was!


Loved hanging with these super fun girls!!


Liz and I had so much fun wandering around the city before the party!


Thanks to all the wonderful vendors who helped make this launch party a great success!
