Stepheny + Sean | Wedding | Harvard, IL

It’s a family affair! This is the first time I got to photograph a relative’s wedding. Stepheny is my cousin from my dad’s side and when she asked me to photograph her and Sean’s wedding, I was ecstatic! The reason why I call it a family affair is not only is it because it’s my cousin’s wedding, but my brother, owner of Nora Events, provided the entertainment, and my uncle and cousin from California sang a few songs and played the guitar. It definitely was an experience I’ll never forget working along the side of my family.

The Starline Factory is definitely a crowd pleaser! I am amazed by the skylight above the ceremony and reception and I’m also in love with the rustic features in the entire building. There were so many hidden gems in this building perfect for portraits. Stepheny and her friends were able to do a lot of DIY decor which all turned out BEAUTIFUL! The ceremony backdrop are dangled paper cones that were all individually handcrafted by her sister. I can not believe they were all handmade! Kudos to you, Jackie. The white, pink, and gold tassels hung behind the last row of chairs are also made by the bridesmaids and myself. These tassels added so much fun to the ceremony!

I am so happy to be a part of Stepheny and Sean’s wedding and I feel even greater knowing I can give them this memory. It’s a wedding I’ll never forget because it’s the first time I did something I loved in front of those that are close to me. A lot of my relatives are not from Minnesota, so it’s occasions like this that bring us together. I left that evening thinking how important my family really is to me. There is so much love, support, and FUN in the Norasingh family! :))))

I hope you can feel how much love went around this day when you look at these photos!

XO,

Sammy
