We were so excited when Lisa Forbes contacted us about Yesim and Craig’s wedding. We knew it was going to be the perfect day focused on what we love the most. . .family. Well, that and belly dancing. Yesim’s family traveled all the way from Turkey for the celebration, and one of Craig’s sons flew in from Poland. It is clear just how much this couple is loved and how excited everyone was to be part of their big day.
Kemper Museum is one of the most beautiful buildings in this great city of ours, and it was the ideal backdrop for this beautiful modern wedding that perfectly married Turkish traditions and American culture.
One of our favorite things about this day was all the red lipstick that kept ending up on Craig’s face. Yesim seemed to get a real kick out of it, and she always had a hankie nearby to quickly get him back to his manly looking self.
Yesim and Craig, thank you so much for allowing us to document your story. Congratulations!!!
