As some people know, Matt and I had originally been planning our wedding for June of 2010 at the lovely Le Jardin at Cantigny Park in Wheaton, Illinois. Long story short, we felt 2010 was too long to wait to get married and had our “Courthouse Chic” wedding instead in November of 2008 with a reception at Meson Sabika this past February. That being said, we still LOVE Cantigny and rank it among our favorite places on earth…our little piece of heaven…in the western suburbs!

The weather was so stunning this afternoon that I felt compelled to stop by Cantigny for some afternoon splendor…I was pleased to see they’ve been working diligently on the gardens and other improvements to the park, and it is just as breathtaking today as all of the other times we’ve gone there. I love that it is only 15 minutes from our home but feels like an entirely different world. A world equipped with a stunning historical mansion, acres of gorgeous gardens and of course, who could forget the tanks?! 

I took a ton of photos today and a lot of them came out great! See the splendor that is CANTIGNY!
