Sarahi and Omar’s love truly shined through to family and friends during their Oak Hill Farm Wedding. After meeting at work while they were in the same training class, the couple became good friends. Friendship turned to a relationship, and a relationship turned to lovers.
“From that day on, we began a wonderful journey of taking chances and leaps of faith,” Sarahi says. After touring the city of Chicago by helicopter, Omar proposed in front of her family with a sign that read, “Marry Me.” The wedding planning immediately began and within 9 months, the couple said I do at Oak Hill Weddings. The romantic barn wedding was filled with mint, ivory, burlap, lace and all of the vintage trimmings you could ever imagine. A DIY wedding with a whole lot of love!
Tara Melissa Photographie says, “My absolute favorite part of the day was Sarahi’s gift to Omar’s children. In marrying Omar, she was also promising a part of her heart to his children. During the ceremony, she presented both with a token that symbolized her commitment to them, and wrote vows just for them as well. I’ll admit, I definitely cried. It was a truly beautiful thing to witness.”
With gorgeous light trying to shine through overcast skies, Tara Melissa Photographie was able to capture all the love in the room.
