Farnaz + Matthew ~ Persian Wedding at The Drake Hotel in Chicago ~ Chicago Wedding Photography

Where to begin with these two?! Oh my goodness, the way Matthew looks at Farnaz (I can’t even keep track of how many images we captured of him gazing at her like she was the only person on earth in their full gallery – just truly the sweetest thing to see!!!)… the way they seem to have these quiet little inside jokes between just the two of them… the way he is always ready to lend a hand – carrying her dress, her bouquet – anything she needs. And don’t even get me started on the friends and family that surrounded them on their day!! In James’ words – probably one of the best wedding parties ever – just SO positive, happy, welcoming, and willing to offer help to them (and us!!) literally all day long. Seeing who they surround themselves with and who loves them so dearly says so much about what kind of people they are themselves!! On top of all that – it really was just such a gorgeous day, filled with so much joy.

Farnaz + Matthew – We can’t thank you enough for having us along on this long awaited day in your lives!! It was such a joy to walk alongside you two and be witnesses to the beautiful love between you two! There is no doubt you have a wonderful life together ahead of you! Sending you all our love, always! XOXO ~ Christy & James
