Skokie Banquet Center | Chicago, Illinois | Marika and Joel • This is Part Two of Marika and Joel’s wedding. Be sure to check out their , too. I (David) don’t have much of a filter. I don’t keep my feelings to myself. Maybe that’s why I get these two. I cannot express to you the joy and excitement and emotion that seeps through the pores of this amazing couple and my only hope is that our pictures do that justice. When people look at these photos, my hope is that potential brides get a chance to see how a wedding is supposed to be. Fun. Happy. Exciting. Care free. And while weddings can be glamorous and gorgeous (and theirs was — I mean look at her dress) they aren’t meant to be stuffy or taken too seriously apart from commitment and love. My opinion is that the wedding is the first day of the rest of your life together and so, it should be an example of how you want your life together to be; these two showed how that’s done. 🙂
