Christina and Truman had a blissful summer wedding at the historic Pleasant Home, a prairie style house museum in Oak Park, just outside of Chicago. Their love for one another is just as vibrant as the coral tones the couple selected for their wedding.

From the photographer Rhea Whitney Photography:

Christina and Truman met in DC the old school way, through family. Truman’s relatives live across the street from Christina’s family and they had wanted the two to meet for a while, but the timing was always off.  Well…on this particular day the timing was just right.   Truman and his grandmother stopped by while Christina was visiting her Aunt and Grandma. When they came by the Truman and Christina chatted a bit and then Truman suggested that they go on a date.  Christina told him she wouldn’t have another day off work for over 2 weeks (which he thought was a clever way of saying she wasn’t interested, but it was actually the truth). So Truman flipped it and suggested that they go on a date right then!   They went to dinner and the movies and the rest was history.

Christina and Truman’s wedding was full of unique details with vibrant colors, on a perfect day in June! Summer days in Chicago are always enjoyable, so the witnessing and being able to capture the love of these two was such a great experience! Her bouquet was very unique with multi-textures. It accompanied the multi-color bridesmaids’ dresses perfectly! The bride loved the old-timey, woodsy feel that the venue, Pleasant Home, provides which made photographing her easy!

The couple relocated to Chicago after the wedding and is looking forward to starting their journey together there.
