Last time we visited Chicago we had our hands full: we shot two weddings, assisted two more, and did a family session. In this post, we’re sharing a few pictures from Dayna and Itunu’s wedding which took place at Space 1858. It was a warm day but this couple was really cool and we enjoyed working with them! And I really admire them for all the traveling that they’ve done together. In 8 years of knowing each other, Dayna and Itunu have visited 15 states, 6 countries, and multiple Caribbean islands. Amazing!
But let me give you some details of their wedding. Itunu looked handsome in his outfit which consisted of blue stylish suit and was complemented with subtle details like wooden hexagonal cuff-links and green tie and boutonniere. But a few other details contributed to his handsome look were his genuine smile, laugh and the gentleman’s manners that he treated his beloved with.
Dayna looked super stunning herself. In her beautiful white wedding dress, she breezed through the ceremony’s room lighting up all the faces around the room. Her face was also illuminated with a gorgeous smile. The moment Dayna entered the room was the moment when some of the first tears were shed and warmth filled the room’s atmosphere. She joined Itunu at the altar and the heart warming ceremony began. It was truly amazing seeing how much they absolutely adore one another.
Dayna and Itunu, with their lovable personalities, made their wedding day exceptional. They made sure that everyone had a great time and was taken care of. Working for them was a real pleasure. It was another one of those days that remind me why I do what I do :-).
Dayna and Itunu: congrats on your wedding and all the best wishes!
