On a lovely sunny day in September, Sharita and Vernon professed their love for one another in a micro wedding witnessed by their closest family and friends in downtown Chicago. Their intimate celebration served up delicious food and desserts, a plentiful bar, and a non-stop party full of smiles and happiness.
Check out Mr. & Mrs. Readus' wedding day captured by Principle Photographer - Jermaine Horton.
The morning started out with Sharita and her squad receiving hair and make-up services while sipping champagne. The groom didn't miss a beat either. Vernon and his guys ate and dressed while listening to a custom playlist created for the wedding day festivities. Both the bride and groom wanted their special day to be memorable and full of energy.

Can I just tell you how much I enjoyed shooting this wedding party! They had the BEST energy and didn't take off running when it started to rain. LOL!
