We were thrilled to take part in another fantastic Indiewed event at the Ravenswood Event Center on February 6. We look forward to taking part in this show of curated wedding professionals every year. Indiewed is an alternative to a traditional wedding expo event, exactly the type of event where we feel at home! We enjoyed having our booth on the first floor among the main action this year. The third floor “Camp Indiewed” lounge was pretty amazing as well! Here are a few shots recapping the day by Cage and Aquarium photographer, Alex Friedland.
