I have always loved wild animals (and even wanted to be a zoologist when little!) so when I came across this wedding I knew we had to feature it. Maureen and Chad wanted to have an unusual destination wedding- one of their first ideas was to travel to Iceland, but they eventually decided to celebrate on safari in Africa. After exchanging vows in a city ceremony in Chicago, they had Nordica Photography follow them to the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya to capture some amazingly different wedding photos. Get ready for wide vistas, rumbling skies, and of course- lots of animals!

Maureen and Chad spent their days on safari getting up early for leisurely drives through the still grasslands searching for wild animals. At night they tried tribal dances and spent hours storytelling and laughing.

“Our African wedding photos captured our love affair with foreign countries, and allow us to remember our beginning as man and wife. Our love for each other is obsessive and consuming; our wedding day and honeymoon was a beautiful yet simple representation of us.”

Thanks to Nordica Photography for sharing these stunning images with us, we’ll be featuring more from them soon so stay tuned!
