The first word that comes to mind when I think of Adam and Naiomi’s wedding day is DREAMY! From the moment I arrived to document Naiomi getting into her sari, to the heartfelt speeches and jam packed dance floor, everything felt so perfect.
Naiomi said that her favorite part of their wedding day was either dancing or seeing Adam’s face when she changed into her dress.

Naiomi wore a traditional sari from Sri Lanka. Her aunts and uncles picked out the fabric and then brought it to a tailor to make the blouse. She didn’t see the whole thing until the day before the wedding and it fit perfectly!
Adam and Naiomi did a First Look before the ceremony and it was magical. In the middle of a forest of aspens, it didn’t even feel like we were in Chicago.
I loved seeing the different traditions during their sweet ceremony.
We scheduled a few minutes directly after the ceremony to take a few portraits of the newly married couple. The venue had so much to offer and we took full advantage of the 15 minutes we scheduled.
Family and friends traveled across the country and even across oceans to see the couple vow their love to each other. It was truly heartwarming to see so much love in one space and I am thankful to be able to document such a beautiful day/night.
