I feel so lucky to have met Ari & Ted.
I could say so many things about their beautiful summer wedding at Ravenswood Event Center, and about their adorableness as a couple, but in the interest of getting to the photos, I’ll just mention a few things that stick out the most in my mind.
To begin with, when you talk about Ari & Ted, you have to also talk about Ari’s love for their cats. Since these two members of the family couldn’t be in attendance at the wedding, Ari got Cuddle Clones to ensure that they could be there in spirit. As someone quite partial to her own cat, I wholeheartedly approved of this.
Also, I just love how funny Ted & Ari are. Throughout the wedding planning process, several of their emails had me literally laughing out loud. They made tackling the inbox a joy, and for that, I am forever thankful.
Lastly, and on a completely separate note, with the wedding being at Ravenswood Event Center, Toast & Jam DJing, Hendzel Productions filming, and Gina of Gina & Tony Photographers seconding with me, this was truly a dream team of vendors. So much of the awesomeness of this wedding is also thanks to them!
