Indie Wed is seriously one of my favorite events every year! And this year was no different! Meeting oodles of adorable engaged couples, listening to some very awesome tunes (You MUST check out Gussied!), and connecting with all the other amazing people in this crazy wedding industry here in Chicago!
Usually I try to make a couple quick rounds during the show to snap up lots of photos for an epic Indie recap post, but this year as I made my way around with my camera, I found myself not taking many photos. I found myself taking a little more time out to actually talk with the other vendors, instead of just shooting and running to get back to my booth as quickly as possible! (Even though I left my trusty assistant behind to keep it running!) I took the time I had to connect with other vendors and meet as many new people as I could. And I have to say that I may not have come away with a ton of photos this year, but it was absolutely time well spent making my rounds, getting to know people better and learn about all the amazing things they do! (We seriously have some MAJOR talent in the Chicago wedding industry, you must get yourself to the next Indie Wed to see for yourself!)
And as we all packed up and moved out at the end of the day, not only did I feel great about getting to chat with the loveliest of couples throughout the day, I ultimately felt so grateful to be a part of this community of amazing people and incredible artists. Because, honestly, it’s pretty cool to get to do what we do! We get to feed our passions and use our talents to make that big day of couples’ dreams come true! And we get to do it together! We get to collaborate and come together to make wedding day magic happen! And we have some true magic makers here that I just can’t wait to work and create with! Thank you Indie Wed for bringing us together and throwing one heck of an amazing event for couples galore! Can’t wait until next time!!!
