Venue: St. Barbara Parish / Silver Lake Country Club | Flowers: Christopher Mark | Cake: Creme Cake Shop | DJ: Style Matters | Photographer: Sean Molin | Dragon Dance: Chicago Chinese Cultural Center | Hair & Makeup: Sarah Barnes

Maureen and Wu met when Maureen started taking Kung Fu lessons at Wu's Chicago studio, and although there was an initial language barrier, the two immediately fell in love. Most of Wu's family still lives in China, but he has been lovingly welcomed into Maureen's family, and they couldn't be a cuter couple. Their adorable wedding included personalized cake toppers, Maureen's with her wild curly hair represented, and an incredible, traditional dragon dance performed by the groom's coworkers. Sean Molin took some incredible photos of the couple outside in the evening, and the November weather held out for them.
