Gelato with Julia (and a bonus of her gorgeous yellow sapphire)

//If you're looking for my most recent wedding or engagement work, click here!\\

Today I want to share with you one of my favorite neighborhood spots, Caffe Gelato! It's on Division right in-between Damen and Hoyne so it's literally one block from my old place. Yes, that was dangerous. And yes, I am on a first name basis with most of the staff.

If you're wondering what the best flavor combination is, it's chocolate with lemon. Lemon is the best though, and if you aren't a chocolate person (and you should maybe see a doctor if this is the case) you can also do lemon with vanilla (like my husband).

Julia is one of my first friends from Chicago! I love her dearly and am so excited to celebrate her wedding in less than two months (and I should mention being photographed by the awesome Christy Tyler -- a great friend and APW sponsor)! You may remember, if you've been around for a while, that I took her engagement pictures last winter. We had so much fun at the Field Museum and ice skating at Millenium Park. But I didn't have a macro lens back then...so I decided to have a little fun with her AMAZING ring while we were enjoying gelato.

I would also like to quickly plug that if you're in the market for a ring, we have the best guy in the city. I found him from another dear friend Rachel, and have already passed him on to Julia and others :-) Just let me know when you need his info!
