One Treasured Day: Trolley Time

Once we finished taking formal photos on the altar, it was time for even more photos. We had three hours between the end of the ceremony and the beginning of cocktail hour to take photos around Chicago. If you’ll recall, we hired a trolley for the occasion.


We made our way out of the chapel and paused for a few photos in front of the building.




Then we loaded up and drove away to begin my favorite part of the day. My nerves melted away once we boarded the trolley. The ceremony was finished and there were no guests to entertain. I got to hang out with my best friends and siblings and roll through my favorite city on a gorgeous day. Simply heavenly.

We popped a bottle of champagne…






…and made our way through Chicago while rocking out and having a dance party.




Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy…
“So I put my hands up, they’re playing my song!”

    Great pictures !!

    You really caught “the after the tension breaks” moments sooo well.

    And great that you had time to unwind with your Hubby and closest friends.

    LOVE Trolleys… and well your pics both inside the trolley and outside looking at the City of Chicago are awesome. Thanks for sharing.

    (Looking forward to the next blog entry… and “the ride” you are taking us on)

    Might I ask, how did your guest react to the 3 hours between the end of the ceremony and the beginning of cocktail hour? We are planning a 2 hour gap

    @Sapphire-Dreamer: I’m Catholic, so a multi-hour gap is standard in my family and circle of friends. I think I’ve only ever been to one wedding ever that didn’t have a gap between the ceremony and reception.
