day before the big day

by | Aug 31, 2009 | Daily life, Travel

On the day of the rehearsal dinner, Eric and I took the train downtown a little early to take advantage of the Art Institute of Chicago’s free admission summer days after 5pm. We had a little extra time, so we wandered around Millennium Park and watched everyone take photos of themselves and friends at The Cloud Gate, aka The Bean. It was our first time here!

The skyline view, while not the classic one, was still pretty great.

On our way to catching a cab to Holy Name cathedral, we quickly snapped a few photos of the living photo wall and were even lucky enough to get a fountain shot!
