On April 27, 2013 Rana & David were married at the beautiful Hilton Hotel in Rosemont. Rana & David had such a great wedding day and Rana turned out to be one of the happiest and most relaxed brides I’ve ever encountered. That’s how it should be! She truly enjoyed her day and it showed. Rana & David met each other through e-harmony and had their first date on January 9, 2011 at the La Bella restaurant in Oak Park. Rana loved David’s sense of humor the fact that when she asked him a question he gave very detailed, thoughtful answers. David loved the fact that Rana enjoyed talking about the same topics he did and found out that even though they came from very different worlds they were very similar in many respects. Rana was born and raised in Iran and David is a Chicago native.
David proposed to Rana on September 8, 2012 and this is what was written about their proposal day that I thought was beautiful!
Birds were chirping, the sky was blue
It was almost sun down; he said this is about me and you.
Driving through the woods, my heart was beating fast
Is he going to propose, I wanted this moment to last
The narrow road to St. Mary’s was so serene and peaceful
He was setting the stage, this was planned and thoughtful.
There was a narrow bridge, we stood and looked around
The beauty of the lake was breathtaking; wonders abound
Walking down the steps, we got to the lake
A dome on each side stood tall, nature was awake.
Orange, green and red, were painted on each tree
A picture so perfect for the moments that were about to be
We walked back into the woods, sat under a tree
He held my hand and said, oh how much he loved me.
I have waited so long he said, and finally found the one
You are the best thing for me, you are my number one
From now to eternity, I want you to be my wife
The mother of my children, a partner in my life.
Here are some of my favorite images that my second shooter (Bryon Landerman) and I took at their beautiful wedding. The day was filled with both Persian and Jewish influences . As you can see it was a really fun day for everyone and a truly joyous occassion. A special thanks to Rana & David for choosing me to be a part of your special day! It was an honor!
