I was so honored to be a part of my dear friend Decima's wedding this past weekend. It was a wonderful few days that my husband and I spent in Chicago with her, her family, and some mutual friends and acquaintances. A beautiful first day there was spent sampling coffee at Intelligentsia (the bride to be pictured there above) and viewing some of the beautiful masterpieces at the Chicago Institute of Art. It was a wonderful day. Below are some of the more impressive moments.
I loved this one for its mood.
In the presence of Rubens. Looking at the flesh of his subjects is the same as feeling its temperature, firmness, even its humidity. Amazing.
Viewing Beata Beatrix.The best photo I have of Decima's wearable art - which I got to wear for the wedding!
The glamorous bride.

The new missus. I think it agrees with her.
