Ninna & Eric | Chicago Wedding Photography

I have known both Ninna and Eric for several years now, and it’s always been a pleasure to meet up with them in various cities as our friends gather together. It was such an honor to help them capture their wedding in Chicago this spring. With Ninna’s kindhearted nature and Eric’s enthusiasm for new ideas and old friends, they somehow made their 400-person wedding still feel like an intimate celebration amongst friends and family. Here are just a few highlights below:

Ninna’s wedding gown was just ever so slightly blush toned.

Despite chilly temperatures and forecasts for rain, they were still able to pull off an outdoor ceremony, and we even got a peek of sun midway through!

During the cocktail hour was the Thai Water Ceremony in honor of Ninna’s Thai heritage. Guests were handed vessels filled with water to pour over the couple’s hands as they offered their blessings and congratulations.
