Chicago in late August. Lake Michigan on a misty day. Taryn + Zak, always.

Exploring the Windy City is always a weekend pastime we’ll gladly road trip for, but when you get to have these two as your companions, well, the adventure is made significantly more fulfilling. The entire weekend was the perfect prelude to all of the magic and excitement that is going to make up their wedding next May and, truth be told, it’s going to be one of the major highlights that gets us through the cold Michigan winter that is before us.

But until then, we’ll have these precious moments to remind us of what summer love looks and feels like.

Taryn + Zak take Chicago.
