We hope you’re ready to smile. Emily & Ivan’s day was all about happiness, and we cannot deny the amount of pure joy in everyone’s faces. Is it possible to have a wedding day theme that focuses on an emotion? If so, Emily & Ivan have “happy” covered. Surrounded by their loved ones for an intimate affair in Humboldt Park, they make love look effortless. The straight-forward ceremony and reception allowed for personal touches throughout the day, from the pinata to the unforgettable first dance.
Their photographer Nick told us some of his favorite moments from this happy day!
What makes Emily & Ivan unique as a couple?
Emily & Ivan are spectacular dance partners, but it seems like their partnership extends well beyond that. They don’t just seem like people that like being around each other, but people that are stronger when they are around each other.
How would you describe the look & feel of their wedding day?
Emily & Ivan made their day into a truly personal event. It was intimate enough that everyone seemed as if they knew each other, and every detail seemed to fit Emily & Ivan’s personality. I especially loved the ice cream cart that greeted everyone on the way out of the church on such a hot day.
Is there any wisdom for other couples that could be taken from Emily & Ivan’s day?
Keep it simple. Focusing on the things that mean the most to you will do more than just make you happy on your wedding day. Your family and friends will get a genuine look into your relationship, and what makes it special/unique.
What was your favorite moment from the day?
By far and away it was their first dance. A medley of different latin dances, it wasn’t just an impressive routine but it represented the way that they met and their favorite pastime. People went crazy for a solid 5 minutes watching them, I didn’t see a single person tuning out and looking for more cake.
