Feast your eyes on this joyful Chicago elopement with donuts & dogs

Chris and Anne's Chicago elopement took place one April afternoon on the six year anniversary of the day they met. The guest list included immediate family, including their adorable pups, Coorah and Luka. Anne's sister officiated the intimate lakefront ceremony on Lake Michigan underneath two budding trees.

Afterward, they hopped on a trolley and headed downtown to Stan's Donuts for some Raspberry Bismarks.

This viking elopement inspiration is all about untamed beauty on the coast

We love a good viking wedding and this viking wedding inspiration was more wild and untamed than we'd ever seen. It's adventurous, romantic, and seriously inspiring if you're planning one of your own. Set on the beautiful Oregon coast and inspired by Nordic traditions, they rocked bold blues, silvers, and greens to match the atmosphere. There are two different looks to see, both separate love stories in themselves. Don't miss the era-inspired weaponry, the gorgeous geode cake, the cave-dotted landscape, the custom-made gowns, and the chill-inducing florals. I can almost hear the battle cries now…
