I am anxious to book my flight this week - I've never been to Chicago, and I am excited to get a little taste of this amazing city the day over Labor Day weekend. I don't know too much about the area, or the venue where the wedding and reception are being held, so I did a little research. I thought I was excited before, but now I can hardly stand it!
About an hour away from the heart of Chicago is the Colby Byron Barn in Grayslake, Illinois. Built in 1885 for use as a county dairy barn, the barn and premises has an enchanting and rustic aura. It was restored in 1996 to serve as a community center.
The happy couple will be exchanging vows during a classy ceremony in the courtyard, with a lively reception in the barn to follow.

Sunflowers, live blue grass band, two-step dancing, cowboy boots...it sounds like we are all in for an amazingly fun evening! I cannot wait to be there. (Am I gushing? I'm gushing. Sorry - I can't help myself!)
Stay tuned for images from the big day...only a month away!
