Kiara-Jade and Chris were special from the moment I met them. When we met for coffee, we connected over my recent trip to Kennebunkport, Maine, which is where Chris’s family often vacations. These two are probably the most easy-going couple I’ve ever photographed and they truly balance each other out so well.

When I sent them my Just Booked Questionnaire to get to know them a little better, they described their relationship as “the most steady roller coaster in the world”. *cue the happy tears*

Their romantic wedding at St. Joseph Catholic Church and Ravisloe Country Club in Homewood, Illinois was nothing short of amazing. Kiara-Jade wore a beautiful long-sleeved lacy gown, which completely matched the aesthetic and vibe that was at Ravisloe.

Kiara-Jade’s bouquet was glammed up with this Norte Dame pin which was Chris’s Grandmother’s. I absolutely adore when couples add personal touches like this to their wedding day, big or small.

Kiara-Jade’s mother traveled from South Africa for the wedding day and was fortunate enough to get to Chicago early so she could spend a lot of time with her daughter and soon-to-be son in law. Her mother is an EXTREMELY talented baker. It’s no surprise that she baked and decorated Chris and Kiara-Jade’s wedding cake. The best part? It was Fast and Furious themed! These two share a love for Fast and Furious and had a wedding cake to match.

Chris and Kiara-Jade – I cannot thank the two of you enough for allowing me to photograph your wedding day. From our pre-wedding meetings at no better place than Starbucks, to your amazing, nautical engagement session at Olive Park, I am so fortunate to have a friendship like yours. I hope you are enjoying your first month of marriage 🙂

xoxo,

Ashley
