Adrian & Hoa’s Wedding!

I love it when Adrian makes Hoa smile and laugh. There is a little glow in her that comes out when they are together. I got to see this briefly during their engagement session last summer.

We started the day at Hoa’s parent’s house. It was quite lovely to see how these sisters show their love to each other in the little ways. =)

The ceremony was held at the gorgeous St. Mary’s of Angels in Chicago.

Adrian is looking for some help in taking the cord off- =)

We were quick to grab some relaxed portraits in the church before departing-

The bridal party was super hungry after the ceremony, so before we continued with our photoshoot, we stopped by for some happy meals- I jumped out of my car to grab these shots.

umm…”20 happy meals please!”

Afterwards the impromptu meal, we headed to a location that I had scouted out the previous week. Who knew such a cool park existed in Des Plaines?

The reception was at Grazie! in Des Plaines- They have two reception halls and I almost freaked out when the wrong names were on the tables! It turns out that I was in the wrong room! =P

He’s fighting the emotions-

She’s fighting the emotions-

You have got to love a well executed tango-

Too funny, and the look of concern from the guests!

This was an intense dance…

And when the guys came through…you had to make sure you were out of the way!

And to close out…a ring shot-

Thanks you guys for an awesome time! It was great getting to know you both and capturing all the emotions of your day. May you both continue to make each other laugh as you grow closer and close together.

with love,

Kenny Nakai
