Monsignor Thiele Center | Chicago, Illinois | Marika and Joel • These two are our perfect type of client. Fun, outgoing, care-free, and madly, deeply, in love. They wear their emotions on their sleeves, are unafraid to cry or laugh as hard as they can at a moments notice. More than that, they are unfailingly kind. Marika and Joel’s wedding was our first time seeing a Nigerian wedding ceremony. And lucky for us, it took place over two days. This is part one (the first day), the traditional Nigerian engagement party. At this wedding we also discovered Nigerian food which is now something we’re actively pursuing to try cooking at home! As you can likely tell from the photos, it was outrageously fun — full of dancing and singing. And in case you’re wondering, yes. Yes we want to do more Nigerian weddings! Stay tuned for part two! • We also did a mini-session near our lake house with Marika and Joel. You can see it here!
