Last summer I had a blast hanging out with Alex and Alex – aka Alex squared! We kept things local to their neighborhood of Lincoln Square, starting at home with sassy calico Rory 🙂 One of my favorite things about visiting their home (besides Rory) was getting to see all the space-themed decor! These two are getting married at Chicago’s own Adler Planetarium in ONE MONTH (!!), and it was clear before our session that this was the perfect location for them to tie the knot.
When I first heard from Alex², they told me:
“If ‘space but classy’ is a theme, then that would be ours. We’re huge science/space nerds and have had too many dates to count at the Adler Planetarium… If you’ve ever attended an ‘Adler After Dark’ event, that’s the vibe we’re trying to achieve.”
As you can imagine, I am counting the days before we get to see their vision come to life!
After photos at home, we headed out into the neighborhood. The Ainslie Arts Plaza had recently opened, and it was the perfect place for a colorful afternoon stroll. We even got to stop at Sulzer Library for some romantic reading… and Alex to show off his perfectly on-theme new shirt!
Finally, we made our way toward the lakefront for photos with the skyline at Montrose Harbor. I think we even felt a few raindrops – but Alex and Alex weren’t fazed! This was such a fun session and I absolutely loved hanging with the Alexes. I’m so excited to do it again very SOON 🙂
