Honeymoon Adventures: An African Safari

african honeymoon

After exchanging vows in Chicago, Maureen + Chad spent a few weeks in Kenya on an African Safari! What an amazing place to go for a honeymoon!! I love that they even had their photographers (Nordica Photography) join them to capture photos of them on their honeymoon and then even in their wedding attire! A bit more about their adventure from Maureen:

Our days were simple: we spent the early mornings leisurely driving through the tall dew drenched grasses admiring the sunrise and the stillness, and long afternoons under the African sun eagerly searching for wild animals. The nights were filled with African dancing, plenty of laughter and storytelling by the fire. 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 so much to Nordica Photography for sharing this absolultey amazing honeymoon with us! Going to Africa on a safari is definitely on Jason’s and my bucket list! :)
