This wedding was really special to me, This is the third bride from this family I’ve shot, the first was nearly 10 years ago and was I believe my 2nd wedding I’d done on my own. I’ve really gotten to know and feel comfortable shooting with these folks. So it was bitter sweet to see the last daughter get married, but at least I know 20 some years from now there kids may start getting married. Rodney and Kate met in Kenya where she was working for an NGO and he was working on a documentary film about the NGO. A good sized group of people made the journey from Kenya to Chicago for the wedding including some friends Rodney grew up with and family members as well. The wedding took place at the colonnades at Soldier Field, which is a pretty amazing location with east view of the museum campus and the lake and northern view of the skyline. Pretty ideal, the weather start off a little iffy with heavy rains which looked like they could spoil the outdoor fun, but everything let up right about the time of the ceremony and it went off with out a hitch. After words great food was served up inside the stadium and then more dancing outside on the colonnades. It’s going to be a long wait until the next family wedding but I’m looking forward to it.
