Wedding Samantha and Justin

In 2008 I was invited to come to the wedding of my niece and nephew Samantha and Justin in Chicago. It was my first time in America and it felt like I had come to the land of the giants. Everything from the roads to the portions of food are big! 🙂 It was the first time I was witness to a full fledged dress rehearsal of the wedding on the evening before.The whole wedding was pre-enacted from start to finish and it was a different experience because in The Netherlands where I am from it is absolutely not the standard. Sam and Justin obviously already had a photographer for the wedding day but I could not resist bringing my camera to the wedding of course making sure not too stand in the way of the official photographer. I managed to make some great shots anyway and immensely anjoyed my first trip to the USA!
