Nina and Olivier came all the way from Vienna, Austria to get married in Chicago!
OK, so Chicago is actually Nina’s home town, and her family welcomed friends and colleagues from around the world for the celebration, including Olivier’s family from France. Their day was a mix of old Ukrainian traditions–including the ceremony at St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral–and modern style (Nina’s dress!!!), and it all culminated with a beautiful reception at the East Bank Club. (Oh, and Olivier even took over the piano for a bit during the reception….amazing!)
My French is terrible so I’ll just sign off with a heartfelt “félicitations” to the beautiful couple! It was an honor to capture this day!
