The Cook County courthouse building was spilling out onto the street with soon to be newlyweds when I arrived to capture Emma & Vukasin’s wedding vows on Saturday morning. While I waited for them to arrive I wandered around and offered congratulations to the many couples who had just gotten married or who were waiting their turn to enter one of the tiny courtrooms as singles and leave as a married couple. The folks gathered were so diverse; some were adorned in full wedding attire, or cultural dresses made of beautiful West African wax print fabric (I am always partial to African fabrics), or Russian traditional wedding clothes sent from their home country just for this day, and some in everyday street clothes. Some couples were surrounded by many family members and friends and some came with just their soon to be spouse but they all were about to marry in the small courtrooms just down the escalator right off Lasalle & Randolph in Chicago.
But seriously can we talk about how cute Emma & Vukasin are!?!? We had a blast running around downtown Chicago to photograph special moments. Bucket drummer dancing and we had to include a Starbucks cup because that is where they met.
More from this special and intimate wedding day. Blessings Emma & Vukasin!
