This wedding was such an amazing day and I can’t wait to share some of my favorite images captured during Nikki and Vili’s special day! A little background on their love story…Vili is from Finland and Nikki lives in Chicago. They met and fell in love at another wedding. They made the long distance thing work and Vili moved to Chicago to be with Nikki and to begin their lives together! The setting for their wedding was just stunning. The ceremony and reception were both held in Nikki’s grandparents’ backyard garden. This space is just beautiful, and it is her grandfather’s pride and joy. Nikki and Vili are perfect for each other and it was truly amazing to see their friends and family from near and far come together to celebrate their love! Enjoy the joy and happiness that radiates in the images below 🙂

We then went to capture some photos of the wedding party before the ceremony. Nikki’s nephews 🙂 How adorable are they?!Fanni is Vili’s niece and just the most precious little flower girl! (and traveled all the way from Finland!)All three of Vili’s groomsmen flew in from Finland. I love this image (there is always one jokester in the group) 🙂 Speaking of jokesters…haha this one cracks me up with Nikki’s grandparents! Meet Elmeri – Vili’s nephew and fellow photographer. He was so stinkin’ cute in his bowtie and carrying around his camera all night taking photos. 😀 First dance!It’s time to DANCE!
Elmeri you are the cutest! Perfect ending to a perfect night.
Thank you Nikki and Vili for choosing us to be a part of your special day! We had so much fun and are so happy for you!
