Street Signs

It's been a while since I posted something about my actual wedding. I'd say I would love to get back into that but November is National Novel Writing Month and I have signed up to write 50,000 words by the end of the month so...let's just say I'm going to try my hardest.

Richard and I knew our "theme" early on. I guess it's not really a theme but a lot of our little details are going to be related to one thing and that is Chicago. It's where I grew up and always wanted to get back to once my parents moved me out to the suburbs. It's where I came back to and fell in love. His parents and grandparents are always telling us that they are amazed at how much we do in the city while we really don't notice it but I suppose looking back it's true.

here we are skating on Wrigley 8am.

Museum of Science and Industry...which I thought was boring prior to this moment.

at the Lincoln Park Zoo visiting the beavers.

So that gives you a little taste of our Chicago lives. Now this idea I came up with before I was even dating Richard. (Don't deny you thought of wedding ideas too when you had no intentions of marrying any time soon. It's ok. We all do it.) I didn't like the regular numbers for tables. I mean, it's not something that bothers me at other weddings, I just didn't want it for mine. I wanted street names instead of numbers for the tables.

table names that look like street signs...thank you etsy!

We used streets that mean something to us in our relationship as well as the streets that my parents, his grandpa and my grandparents lived on. Jackson Blvd for instance...that's the street where we met. :)



  1. Great idea! Very cool and personal and meaningful!

  2. does every girl start thinking of their weddings as young as age 5??

    very cute blog post today, girlfriend. :)
